Supplement composition and method
Murray, F., O3 Animal Health LLC, US9248155, February 2, 2016
The present invention relates to a dietary supplement composition made of: linolenic expeller pressed soybean oil in the range
of 65–85%, Omega 3 (18/12) fish oil 15–35%, and 1–20% alpha-tocopherol and a method to use this composition to supplement the
diet of a domestic animal, such as a canine or an equine.
Compositions derived from
metathesized natural oils and
amines and methods of making
Mujkic, M., et al., Dow Corning Corp; Elevance Renewable
Sciences, Inc. US9249360, February 2, 2016
Wax compositions derived from metathesized natural oils and
amines and methods of making wax compositions from metathesized
natural oils and amines are provided. The wax compositions comprise amidated metathesized natural oils formed from a metathesized
natural oil and at least one amine. The methods comprise providing
an amine and providing a metathesized natural oil. The methods
further comprise mixing the amine and the metathesized natural oil
in the presence of a basic catalyst or heat, causing a reaction between
the amine and metathesized natural oil, therein forming the amidated
metathesized natural oil.
Small liposomes for delivery of immunogen-
Geall, A., and V. Ayush, Novartis Ag, US9254265, February 9, 2016
Nucleic acid immunization is achieved by delivering RNA
encapsulated within a liposome. The RNA encodes an immunogen of
interest, and the liposome has a diameter in the range of 60–180 nm,
and ideally in the range 80–160 nm. Thus the invention provides a
liposome having a lipid bilayer encapsulating an aqueous core, wherein: (i) the lipid bilayer has a diameter in the range of 60–180 nm; and
(ii) the aqueous core includes a RNA which encodes an immunogen.
These liposomes are suitable for in vivo delivery of the RNA to a vertebrate cell and so they are useful as components in pharmaceutical
compositions for immunizing subjects against various diseases.
Branched-chain fatty acids for prevention
or treatment of gastrointestinal disorders
Brenna, J. T., and R. Ran-Ressler, Cornell University, US9254275,
February 9, 2016
The present invention is directed to a method of preventing or
Formulations and dosage forms
treating a gastrointestinal condition in a subject, that includes
administering one or more branched chain fatty acid to the subject
under conditions effective to prevent or treat the gastrointestinal
condition in the subject. In general, branched chain fatty acids, in
accordance with the present invention, may be non-esterified fatty
acids or covalently linked to a lipid, including wax esters, sterol
esters, triacylglycerols, or any other lipid-related molecular species,
natural or artificial. The branched chain fatty acid can be a C11 to
C26 branched chain fatty acid and mixtures thereof.
of oxidized phospholipids
Sher, N., et al., Vascular Biogenics Ltd., US9254297, February 9,
The current disclosure provides pharmaceutical compositions containing an oxidized phospholipid, such as 1-hexadecyl-
2-( 4′-carboxybutyl)-glycero-3-phosphocholine (VB-201) and a
thermosoftening carrier, e.g., a poloxamer. The pharmaceutical
compositions may further comprise an anti-adherent agent, such
as talc and/or a thixotropic agent. The current disclosure further
provides processes for preparing the pharmaceutical compositions.
The disclosure further provides capsules containing the pharmaceutical compositions. Uses of such pharmaceutical compositions
and capsules in treating inflammatory disorders are also disclosed.
Supplement composition and method
Fulgham, M., O3 Animal Health LLC, US9254304, February 9,
The present invention relates to a dietary supplement
composition made of: linolenic expeller pressed soybean oil in
the range of 65% –85%, Omega 3 (18/12) fish oil 15% –35%,
1% –20% α tocopherol, and 7.5%–15% acai berry powder and
a method to use this composition to supplement the diet of a
domestic animal, such as a canine or an equine.

lysis and neutral lipid production
Curtiss, Roy, III, and L. Xinyao
Arizona Board of Regents for and on Behalf of Arizona State
University, US9255283, February 9, 2016
The present invention is directed to a cyanobacterium that
produces neutral lipids or alkanes. Such neutral lipids or alkanes
may be used for biofuel production.
