  • Publication number: 20150104439
    Abstract: The invention provides a method for alleviating discogenic pain by administering a therapeutic agent that disrupts neuronal and/or vascular elements in the disc, which is typically a degenerated disc. Disruption of neuronal elements in the disk includes destroying nerve endings without substantially affecting the central body of the nerve, suppressing activation of the nerve endings, and inhibiting the growth of nerve endings into the disk. Disruption of vascular elements includes causing the vascular extensions to retract from the disk, or suppressing the formation of such extensions. The therapeutic agent may be administered locally via an interbody pump, a bolus or a depot, or may be administered systemically.

  • Patent number: 7241808
    Abstract: A composition for the treatment of skin comprises a carboxylated, acidic amino acid obtained by acidifying an acidic amino acid with a carboxylic acid. The resultant material, which is also referred to as a tricarboxylic acid or an amino fruit acid, has significant benefit for the treatment of a number of skin conditions. In addition, the composition of the present invention is very noncaustic to skin, even when employed at a pH as low as 0.5. Also disclosed herein are therapeutic methods and compositions which employ the carboxylated acidic amino acids.

  • Patent number: 7182937
    Abstract: A composition for reducing dentinal hypersensitivity and remineralizing exposed dentinal surface and open dentinal tubules, comprising a non-aqueous carrier and a desensitizing amount of a desensitizing/remineralizing agent which consists essentially of a water soluble calcium salt and an incompatible ingredient which would otherwise react with the calcium salt. Upon contact with saliva when applied to an oral cavity, the desensitizing/remineralizing is then formed in situ by the reaction between the calcium salt and the incompatible ingredient, thereby remineralizing exposed dentinal surface and open dentinal tubules.

  • Patent number: 7094286
    Abstract: The present invention discloses an inorganic bone adhesive and its use in human hard tissue repairs. The inorganic bone adhesive comprises basic compound, phosphate, calcium phosphate bone cement and retarder with the characteristics of rapid hydration rate and high early strength. Inorganic Bone adhesive can be widely used in the artificial joints fixation, screw fixation as well as comminuted fracture fixation. It is a kind of safe and effective adhesive material and beneficial for the fast postoperative recovery. The final hydration reaction products contains the composition of magnesium phosphate, bio-mineral containing ammonium and apatite-like materials, which has excellent biocompatibility and can be gradually absorbed by surrounding tissues after being implanted in vivo, which benefits the in-growth of the new bone.
