  • Patent number: 11123455
    Abstract: The present invention relates to a composition for dermal injection which includes two or more types of cross-linked hyaluronic acid particles having different particle diameters and non-cross-linked hyaluronic acid. The composition for dermal injection according to the present invention satisfies viscosity, extrusion force, and viscoelasticity conditions for dermal injection, and an extrusion force deviation is low so that the user does not feel fatigue when the composition is injected into the dermal thereof. Also, the composition is excellent in viscoelasticity and tissue restoring ability, is maintained for a long period of time, allows rapid recovery because an initial swelling degree is low, and also is excellent in safety and stability in the body.

    Abstract: The present invention relates to methods and pharmaceutical compositions for the treatment of neurodegeneration in with brain iron accumulation (NBIA). Studying two novel genes, namely, CRAT encoding the carnitine acetyltransferase and REPS1 involved in endocytosis and vesicle transport, and a series of known NBIA genes, the inventors reported on iron overload related to increased levels and abnormal recycling of transferrin receptor as a common feature in NBIA. They ascribe this anomaly, at least in part, to impaired palmitoylation of the receptor as a common consequence of the various disease causing mutations. Finally, the inventors show that Artesunate improved TfR1 palmitoylation in NBIA fibroblasts. In particular, the present invention relates to a method of treating neurodegeneration with brain iron accumulation in a subject in need thereof comprising administering to the subject a therapeutically effective amount of a drug increasing TfR1 palmitoylation.
