  • Patent number: 8147869
    Abstract: The invention is a composition administrable orally to provide systemic glutathione (reduced) and a method for providing systemic glutathione by oral administration of glutathione (reduced) in a liposome encapsulation. The administration of a therapeutically effective amount of oral liposomal glutathione (reduced) results in improvement of symptoms in disease states related to glutathione deficiency such as Parkinson's disease and cystic fibrosis. Compounds enhancing the effect of the liposomal glutathione are contemplated such as Selenium, EDTA, carbidopa, and levodopa.

  • Publication number: 20120034313
    Abstract: A chemical blend that simultaneously kills bacteria and suppresses the production of hydrogen sulfide (H2S) includes both a first chemical, which may be a glutaraldehyde, a tetrakishydroxymethyl phosphonium sulfate (THPS), a quaternary amine compound, a thiocyanate, a carbamate, a cinnamaldehyde, an alkyl dimethyl benzyl ammonium chloride, and/or a diamine diacetate; a second chemical which is a quinone; optionally a third chemical, which is a phosphate compound and a solvent which includes monoethylene glycol. The chemical blend has shown synergistic results for killing bacteria and/or suppressing the production of hydrogen sulfide as compared with the addition of the results of each of the components of the blend used separately.

  • Publication number: 20110269831
    Abstract: The invention provides uses and methods for reducing nephropathy in persons with diabetes mellitus (particularly Type 2 diabetes), in persons with metabolic syndrome, in persons with triglyceride levels over 215 mg/dL, and in persons with a cholesterol level over 200 mg/dL, by administering an inhibitor of soluble epoxide hydrolase (“sEH”). Optionally, a cis-epoxyeicosantrienoic acid (“EET”) can be administered with the sEH inhibitor. The invention further provides for using EETs in conjunction with one or more sEH inhibitors to reduce hypertension, and for compositions of EETs coated with a material insoluble in an acid of pH 3 but soluble in a solution with a pH of 7.4 or higher.
