  • Patent number: 10653802
    Abstract: Shown and described is a composition and a method to prepare a dopant-free photoluminescent hydrogel with synthetic polymers are disclosed. The hydrogel can be synthesized in one embodiment by incorporating an amino acid to a citric acid based polyester oligomer followed by multiple crosslinking group functionalization through a transesterification reaction using an enzyme such as Candida antarctica Lipase B (CALB) as a catalyst. The hydrogels are injectable, degradable, and their mechanical and photoluminescent properties are tunable. An in vivo study shows that the hydrogel emits strong fluorescence under visible light excitation and can completely degrade over time.

  • Patent number: 8658703
    Abstract: Addition of polyvinylpyrrolidone and a water-soluble anionic macromolecular compound to an aqueous suspension of a hardly soluble drug allows to provide an aqueous suspension in which aggregation of drug particles, formation of macro crystals from suspended particles and formation of secondary particles from deposited particles are prevented, and adhesion and adsorption to containers made of plastics, e.g., polypropylene or polyethylene, are avoided. As it has a good redispersibility, the aqueous suspension is useful as eye drops, nasal drops, ear drops, injections, oral preparations, liniments and lotions.

  • Publication number: 20130338121
    Abstract: The present document describes a monolithic tablet dosage form for delivery of an active ingredient at two different release rates comprising a carboxyl polymer complexed with a multivalent cation and a disintegrating agent for a first initial fast release of the active ingredient, and a modulating agent for a second sustained release of the active ingredient. Also described are processes for preparing the carboxyl polymer complexed with a multivalent cation, and carboxyl polymer made from the process.

  • Publication number: 20130281546
    Abstract: An intrabuccally rapidly disintegrating tablet which is manufactured by a simple method, has an enough practical hardness and is rapidly disintegrated in the buccal cavity and its production method. The intrabuccally rapidly disintegrating tablet is produced by growing a powder material into a granulated material with a fixed particle diameter, the powder material including a sugar alcohol or a saccharide as main ingredient, each of which is first particle having an average particle diameter of not more than 30 ?m, by mixing thus obtained granulated material with an active ingredient and a disintegrant, and by compressing the mixture into a predetermined shape.
