Described here is a topical skin care composition containing an anti-aging extract solution of Dendrobium huoshanense and a carrier. Although a number anti-aging skin care products are commercially available, natural ingredients are often desired. Thus, this invention meets the needs of consumers seeking skin care products that are not only natural, but also effective; and with little or no side effects.
Novel surface markers for adipose tissues
WIPO Patent Application WO/2013/040391
Publication date: March 21, 2013
Assignee: Joslin Diabetes Center, Inc., RC Kahn and S Ussar
The present invention is basedon the discovery of brown and white fat cell-specific surface markers. It has been found that the small amino acid transporter Slca10/Asc1 is a specific surface marker for white adipocytes, and that the ligand-gated ion channel P2X5 and the small amino acid transporter Slc36a2 are specific surface markers for brown adipocytes. Having identified these specific white and brown cell surface markers, this invention provides compositions and methods suitable for the targeting of any number of agents to a white or brown adipose tissue.
Methods for administration and formulations for the treatment of regional adipose tissue
US Patent 8404750
Publication date: March 26, 2013
Assignee: Lithera, Inc.
Provided herein are pharmaceutical formulations, methods and systems for treating regional fat deposits and fat-related conditions and indications. Methods comprise administering a pharmaceutical formulation consisting essentially of a long-acting beta-2 adrenergic receptor agonist, for example, salmeterol, suitable for subcutaneous administration. Methods further comprise administering a pharmaceutical formulation that is suitable for subcutaneous injection comprising: a) a lipophilic long-acting selective beta-2 adrenergic receptor agonist and/or glucocorticosteroid, or a salt, optical isomer, racemate, solvate, or polymorph thereof; and b) at least one subcutaneously acceptable inactive ingredient.
