  • Publication number: 20120203147
    Abstract: A method for increasing blood flow to vital organs during cardiopulmonary resuscitation of a person experiencing a cardiac arrest may include performing standard or active compression decompression cardiopulmonary resuscitation on a person to create artificial circulation by repetitively compressing the person's chest such that the person's chest is subject to a compression phase and a relaxation or decompression phase. The method may also include administering one or more vasodilator drugs to the person to improve the artificial circulation created by the cardiopulmonary resuscitation. The method may also include binding at least a portion of the person's abdomen, either manually or with an abdominal compression device. Performing cardiopulmonary resuscitation on a person may include ventilating the person with either an impedance threshold device or a intrathoracic pressure regulator.

  • Patent number: 8207222
    Abstract: The present invention particularly relates to novel nitrate esters of paracetamol. The nitrate esters of paracetamol are prepared by reacting the paracetamol with dihaloalkyl compound and followed by reaction with silver nitrate to obtain the corresponding nitrate ester derivatives. The nitrate esters of paracetamol are useful as analgesic, anti-inflammatory agents.

  • Patent number: 8168232
    Abstract: The present invention relates to methods and formulations for inhibiting, treating and preventing a malignant cell phenotype, cell, tumor and/or disease. Administration of nitric oxide mimetics, such as low doses, is sufficient to increase, restore or maintain nitric oxide-mediated signaling in cells so that malignant cell phenotypes, cells, tumors and/or diseases are inhibited or prevented. These methods and formulations are particularly useful in treating and preventing cancer in animals.
