METABOLIC SYNDROME-IMPROVING AGENT AND MEDICINE, SUPPLEMENT, FUNCTIONAL FOOD AND FOOD ADDITIVE CONTAINING THE SAME
Publication/Patent Number: EP1847266B1 Publication Date: 2013-12-25 Application Number: 06712090.7 Filing Date: 2006-01-20 Inventor: Sasaki, Takao   Yano, Masamichi   Assignee: ARKRAY, Inc.   IPC: A61K31/37 Abstract: A metabolic syndrome relieving agent that is free from a problem of side effects and can be taken for a long term is provided. Bergamottin is used as an agent for relieving a metabolic syndrome. Since bergamottin has functions of activating PPAR± and PPAR³, promoting the secretion of adiponectin in adipocytes and inhibiting the generation of VLDLs in hepatic cells, it is possible to prevent or treat diseases such as insulin resistance, hyperinsulinism, type 2 diabetes, obesity, visceral fat obesity, hypertension, hyperlipemia, arteriosclerosis and the like and thus prevent or treat the metabolic syndrome. Also, as understood from the fact that citrus fruits such as a grapefruit or the like containing bergamottin have been eaten for many years, they have no problems in terms of safety and have a low calorie content, and therefore, they can be taken for a long term. Further, since bergamottin is tasteless and odorless, it does not impair the unique taste of a food when added to this food, so that it can be added to foods and taken. A metabolic syndrome relieving agent that is free from a problem of side effects and can be taken for a long term is provided. Bergamottin is used as an agent for relieving a metabolic syndrome. Since bergamottin has functions of activating PPAR± and PPAR³, promoting the ...More ...Less

Flow regulating implant, method of manufacturing, and delivery device
Publication/Patent Number: EP1920742B1 Publication Date: 2013-12-25 Application Number: 07024093.2 Filing Date: 1998-11-18 Inventor: Yaron, Ira   Yarden, Orit   Assignee: Optonol Ltd.   IPC: A61F9/007 Abstract: An implant (100) includes a tube for permitting fluid flow. A flow controlling rod (921) may be inserted within the tube passage (102). One or more holes (104) around the circumference of the tube may be selectively permanently or temporarily occluded to give desired flow characteristics. A delivery device (60) for implanting the implant may include a central bore (67) in which a retractable wire is located. The retractable wire penetrates a tube passage of the implant when the implant is attached to the delivery device. A hook on the delivery device prevents the implant from moving down the wire. After the implant is in position in the eye, the retention wire is retracted out of the implant. With the retention wire retracted, the implant is then free to slide away from the hook, allowing the delivery device to be withdrawn, leaving the implant in place. In a method for manufacturing an implant, two tubes of different diameters are utilized. The smaller tube fits inside the longitudinal bore of the larger tube. When the tubes are cut, the smaller tube forms the tube of the implant and the remaining portions of the larger tube form the retention projection and/or disk of the implant. An implant (100) includes a tube for permitting fluid flow. A flow controlling rod (921) may be inserted within the tube passage (102). One or more holes (104) around the circumference of the tube may be selectively permanently or temporarily occluded to give desired flow ...More ...Less
