    Abstract: Compositions, kits and methods for promoting diabetic wound healing are based on the discovery that SDF-1? specifically upregulates expression of E-selectin in mature endothelial cells (EC), leading to an increase in EC-endothelial progenitor cell (EPC) adhesion and EPC homing. Methods for promoting healing of a wound in a diabetic subject include providing a therapeutically effective amount of a composition including E-selectin protein or a nucleic acid encoding E-selectin protein, and optionally, an agent that specifically upregulates E-selectin expression (e.g., SDF-1?). The methods can also include administering hyperbaric oxygen treatment to the subject. Administering the composition to the subject results in migration of bone marrow-derived progenitor cells to the wound, accelerated wound healing, and upregulation of E-selectin expression in the subject.

  • Publication number: 20110008462
    Abstract: A system and method for generating an oxygen enriched aqueous solution for therapeutic application includes a diffuser comprising a first diffusing member having a surface incorporating surface disturbances, and a second diffusing member positioned relative to the first diffusing member to form a channel through which an aqueous solution and oxygen gas may flow. A reservoir containing the aqueous solution is connected to a pump that draws the aqueous solution from the reservoir and inputs the aqueous solution into the diffuser. The aqueous solution is moved through the channel relative to the surface disturbances to create cavitation in the aqueous solution to diffuse the oxygen gas into the aqueous solution to produce an oxygen enriched aqueous solution.

  • Publication number: 20100316730
    Abstract: Methods of treating cardiovascular diseases, including atherosclerosis, peripheral arterial occlusive disease, congestive heart failure, hypertension, cerebrovascular disease, dyslipidemia and vasospastic disorders such as Raynaud's disease, in a mammalian patient involve extracorporeally subjecting an amount of blood, blood fractionate or other biological fluid from a patient to a measured amount of ozone delivered by an ozone delivery system, resulting in the absorption of a quantifiable absorbed-dose of ozone and reinfusing the treated fluid into the patient to therapeutically treat cardiovascular disease and related conditions.

  • Publication number: 20100316727
    Abstract: Methods for therapeutic treatment of inflammatory conditions in a mammalian patient provide clinical benefits including reduction of inflammation, vasorelaxation, reduction in edema and increased blood flow, the methods generally comprising extracorporeal treatment of blood, blood fractionate, or other biological fluid to expose such fluids to a precise, measured amount of ozone to produce a blood or biological fluid having a quantified absorbed dose of ozone, and reinfusing the treated biological fluid to the patient to provide therapeutic effects beneficial in the treatment of inflammatory disorders and related symptoms or conditions.

  • Publication number: 20100310609
    Abstract: Provided are electrokinetically-altered fluids (gas-enriched electrokinetic fluids) comprising an ionic aqueous solution of charge-stabilized oxygen-containing nanostructures in an amount sufficient for treating an inflammatory neurodegenerative condition or disease (e.g., multiple sclerosis (MS), Parkinson's disease (PD), Alzheimer's disease (AD)) or at least one symptom thereof. The electrokinetically-altered fluids or therapeutic compositions and methods include electrokinetically-altered ionic aqueous fluids optionally in combination with other therapeutic agents. Particular aspects provide for regulating or modulating intracellular signal transduction associated with said inflammatory responses by modulation of at least one of cellular membranes, membrane potential and/or conductance, membrane proteins such as membrane receptors, including but not limited to G-Protein Coupled Receptors (GPCR), and intercellular junctions (e.g., tight junctions, gap junctions, zona adherins and desmasomes).

  • Publication number: 20100300983
    Abstract: A system for reducing or preventing the growth of organisms in the process water used to coat glass fibers with a formaldehyde-free binder composition. One or more biocides is added to the process water that mitigates the growth of microbes in the water. The biocides are added in an amount sufficient to minimize growth of organisms without adversely affecting the application of the binder composition to the glass fibers.

  • Patent number: 7833539
    Abstract: This invention relates generally to compositions for whitening human teeth, and more particularly, to compositions that do not contain hydrocarbon humectants and which, when applied onto the surface of teeth act to whiten without damage to tooth surfaces. They do contain a hydrogel, defined as a gel that does not contain a hydrocarbon humectant. A hydrocarbon humectant is defined as a carbon, hydrogen and oxygen compound which is used to prevent the oral care composition from hardening upon exposure to air or a carbon, hydrogen and oxygen compound which is used as a carrier for ingredients of an oral care composition.
