  • Patent number: 10988731
    Abstract: A method of creating a protein rich conditioned medium. The method includes culturing mesenchymal stem cells in a container utilizing a first growth medium, allowing a time period for proliferation of the mesenchymal stem cells until a desired level of confluence is achieved in the container, discarding a supernatant from the container, adding a second medium to the container, incubating the mesenchymal stem cells, and collecting the conditioned medium. The method produces significantly higher quantities of byproducts secreted by the mesenchymal stem cells. Byproducts are usable for wound healing, disease treatment, cosmetic, or other beneficial effects when applied or otherwise delivered to a patient.

  • Patent number: 10065982
    Abstract: The present invention provides a high-purity acid-form sophorolipid (SL)-containing composition characterized by substantially not containing acetic acid. The high-purity acid-form SL-containing composition can be produced, for example, by the following method: (i) adjusting the pH of a partially purified acid-form SL-containing composition to an acidic range; and (ii-a) subjecting an acidified partially purified acid-form SL-containing composition obtained in step (i) to chromatography to acquire a fraction containing an acid-form SL, or (ii-b) leaving the acidified partially purified acid-form SL-containing composition obtained in step (i) to stand under a low-temperature condition to acquire a resulting gelled object.
