  • Patent number: 9283257
    Abstract: Embodiments herein relate to agents that mimic calorie restriction (CR) to extend life span, especially agents that lower the level of cytosolic NADH and increase the level of cytosolic NAD+ (relative to NADH) required to mimic calorie restriction that results in life span extension, at least in part by inhibition by NADH of SIR2, which is a key regulator of life span in both yeast and animals. NADH is a competitive inhibitor of SIR2, an NAD-requiring NAD-dependent histone deacetylase required for chromatin silencing and life-span extension. An overall reduction in NADH activates SIR2 and extends life span. The use of fluorescence measurements of NADH levels in a 96-well plate assay utilizing Baker's yeast (Saccharomyces cerevisiae) as a model to screen for agents and supplements that lower NADH levels is disclosed herein. A caloric restriction mimetic contains 1 part Mg2+ malate, 1 part turmeric and 98 parts dehydrated potato skins.

  • Publication number: 20150017110
    Abstract: The present invention describes, in one aspect, the use of two oppositely charged surfactants as the primary emulsifiers in two separated parts of a product. The emulsifiers are chosen such that when the two parts of the emulsion product are mixed, the emulsifiers react to form water insoluble compounds that are no longer able to function as emulsifiers, thus, the oil phase of the emulsion is precipitated onto the skin along with the emulsifier reaction product. Since none of the deposited materials are water soluble, or capable of functioning as emulsifiers, the deposited oil phase is extremely resistant to being washed off. This technology finds applications in hand and body creams and lotions, baby care products, sunscreens, skin protective products, makeup systems, and automotive and furniture polishes.

In a preferred embodiment, a drug is modified to increase its lipophilicity. In some embodiments the modified drug is homogeneously dispersed within spherical microparticles composed of a material that is either slowly soluble or not soluble in water. In some embodiments the drug containing microparticles or drug particles are coated with one or more coating layers, where at least one coating is water insoluble and/or organic solvent insoluble. The abuse-deterrent composition retards the release of drug, even if the physical integrity of the formulation is compromised (for example, by chopping with a blade or crushing) and the resulting material is placed in water, snorted, or swallowed. However, when administered as directed, the drug is slowly released from the composition as the composition is passes through the GI tract.
