  • Patent number: 10500289
    Abstract: The present invention discloses a method for diagnosing and detecting cancer by bioimaging using methylene blue nanoparticle as a contrasting agent. The methylene blue nanoparticle of the present invention for use as a topical cancer targeting phototherapeutic agent is composed of only a material of which the composition is clinically used or derived from human bodies, and thus a nanopreparation in which a barrier to clinical entry is low and the possibility of commercialization is very high, exhibits near-infrared fluorescence along with cancer targeting property, a capacity of generating a singlet oxygen and the like. Therefore, the methylene blue nanoparticle in the present invention is able to detect cancerous cells by emitting visible light in irradiation conditions.

  • Patent number: 9622948
    Abstract: Present invention relates to a process for manufacturing emulsion composition which comprises an oil phase dispersed in a continuous water phase which is stabilized with a surfactant as an emulsifier. The present invention is on a method for producing an emulsion comprising one or more fatty alcohol, one or more oil liquid at 20° C. and one or more surfactant wherein one or more surfactant is added to the dispersion of one or more fatty alcohol and one or more oil liquid at 20° C. in water at a temperature of 50° C. or higher, preferably 60° C. or higher with the condition that the temperature of the dispersion is at least 10° C. higher than the melting point of fatty alcohol having the highest melting point, more preferably between 60 and 85° C. wherein the emulsion thus obtained does not comprise dispersed droplets with a volume size larger than or equal to 10 ?m measured directly without dilution of the emulsion at 20° C. measured with a laser particle size analyzer suitable therefore.
