  • Patent number: 9961899
    Abstract: Provided herein are aqueous suspension concentrate compositions comprising biologically active 3,5-disubstituted-1,2,4-oxadiazoles or salts thereof that are useful, for example, in the control of nematodes. Nematodes are active, flexible, elongate organisms that live on moist surfaces or in liquid environments, including films of water within soil and moist tissues within other organisms. Many species of nematodes have evolved to be very successful parasites of plants and animals and, as a result, are responsible for significant economic losses in agriculture and livestock.

  • Patent number: 9713610
    Abstract: The invention relates to medicine and pharmacology, more particularly to drugs, and even more particularly to pharmaceutical compositions for treating gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD). The pharmaceutical composition for treating GERD contains at least one proton pump inhibitor (PPI) and at least one prebiotic. Also claimed is a method for treating gastroesophageal reflux disease in which it is not necessary to eradicate the presence of H. pylori in order to prevent the risks associated with the translocation of said bacteria from the antrum to the body of the stomach. The composition provides for prevention of the translocation of H. pylori by means of the colonization of the antrum by lactobacilli and the concurrent inhibition of H. pylori during PPI therapy. This makes it possible to dispense with the need to detect the bacteria and carry out a course of eradication therapy. The safety of long-term PPI therapy is increased.

  • Patent number: 7384919
    Abstract: The inventors have devised novel approaches for the preparation of flavanolignan compositions of enhanced solubility and substantially free of toxic contaminants. Such novel approaches are based on spray drying or lyophilizing to dry a diluted preparation of flavanolignan. These approaches avoid the use of toxic excipients and or carriers commonly used to precipitate flavanolignan concentrates and thus address the drawbacks of existing methods and compositions.
