Controlled release delivery system for nasal applications and treatment

This invention relates to a gel formulation for nasal administration of a controlled release formulation of hormones to the systemic circulation and/or to the brain. The special lipophilic or partly lipophilic system of the invention leads to higher bioavailability of the active ingredient caused by sustained serum levels in plasma but also leads to a more favorable serum level profile.

Method of producing dispersion liquid of gelatinous electrolyte

A method of producing a dispersion liquid of a gelatinous electrolyte includes a water content reduction process of concentrating an aqueous dispersion liquid of an electrolyte at a temperature of 50° c. Or less and reducing a water content in a concentrate of the electrolyte to 5% by mass or less based on the total mass of the concentrate of the electrolyte, and an alcohol addition process of adding an alcohol to the concentrate of the electrolyte obtained in the water content reduction process to form the dispersion liquid of the gelatinous electrolyte..

Elastomeric gel body gasket having a substantially incompressible skeleton, a making and using the same

Gaskets, including aircraft gaskets, are disclosed, the gaskets having an elastomeric gel body and substantially incompressible skeletons. The bodies may be pliable and deformable and, in one example, may be comprised of a two-part chemically cured polyurethane that sets up as a gel after mixing with the web so that it is fully integral with the web and so that there is substantially no air bubbles or air pockets left in the web.
