Summary for Patent: 5,981,606
Title: Therapeutic TGF-beta-wound healing compositions and methods for preparing and using same
Abstract:This invention pertains to therapeutic wound healing compositions for protecting and resuscitating mammalian cells (Embodiment One (I)). This invention also pertains to therapeutic TGF-beta-wound healing compositions for reducing the formation of scar tissue and increasing the proliferation and resuscitation rate of mammalian cells (Embodiment Two (II)). In a first aspect of Embodiment One (I.A), the therapeutic wound healing composition comprises (a) pyruvate, (b) an antioxidant, and (c) a mixture of saturated and unsaturated fatty acids. In a second aspect of Embodiment One (I.B), the therapeutic wound healing composition comprises (a) pyruvate, (b) lactate, and (c) a mixture of saturated and unsaturated fatty acids. In a third aspect of Embodiment One (I.C), the therapeutic wound healing composition comprises (a) an antioxidant and (b) a mixture of saturated and unsaturated fatty acids. In a fourth aspect of Embodiment One (I.D), the therapeutic wound healing composition comprises (a) lactate, (b) an antioxidant, and (c) a mixture of saturated and unsaturated fatty acids. In Embodiment Two (II), the therapeutic wound healing compositions of Embodiment One (I.A-D) are combined with a therapeutically effective amount of a TGF-beta (GF) to form TGF-beta-wound healing compositions (II.A-D+GF). This invention also pertains to methods for preparing and using the TGF-beta-wound healing compositions and the topical and ingestible pharmaceutical products in which the therapeutic compositions may be used.
