The active moiety is a polyanhydride derivative. The active transdermal retardant offers a barrier property and chemically and/or physically reacts with harmful chemicals to decrease percutaneous absorption. In the preferred embodiments, polyanhydride in its low molecular weight form reduced flux of nicotine and nitrofurazone significantly. Additionally, polyanhydride in its high molecular weight form prevented nicotine absorption and decreased nitrofurazone permeation dramatically. Moreover, the polyanhydride in its high molecular weight form reduced nitroglycerin flux to a lesser extent.

  • Patent number: 8916141
    Abstract: The present invention relates to a hyaluronidase inhibitor containing poly-gamma-glutamic acid (PGA) as an active ingredient, a composition for maintaining skin elasticity and a composition for improving allergy, wherein each of the compositions contains PGA as an active ingredient. The inventive compositions containing PGA are effective in maintaining skin moisturization and skin elasticity by effectively inhibiting the activity of hyaluronidase which is an enzyme that degrades hyaluronic acid present in the skin dermis. Also, the compositions can relieve allergic symptoms by inhibiting the permeability of inflammatory cells.

  • Publication number: 20140341836
    Abstract: Methods are provided for making freeze dried hydrogel and structures therefrom that may be introduced into a patient's body for medical applications. Precursor components are combined to initiate crosslinking. The combined precursor components are placed in a chilled tray, and allowed to crosslink to a desired level of complete crosslinking before and/or after being placed onto the tray. The partially crosslinked hydrogel is frozen and freeze dried. After freeze drying, the hydrogel is conditioned to substantially complete crosslinking, and formed into one or more structures, e.g., plugs, hemostatic, or other medical devices. For example, the hydrogel may be cut, machined, rolled, folded, compressed, and/or cored into that may be loaded into delivery devices that may be introduced into a body to implant or otherwise deliver the structures into the body, e.g., to seal a puncture or other passage through tissue.
