US Patent – Grant: 7,537,774
Publication Date: May 26, 2009
A mixture of catechol, croconic acid and/or sulfites, tetrahydroxyquinone and/or sulfites and acetogenins, in the form of a tablet, a capsule, a liquids, transdermal patches and gels, used for the treatment of colon cancer, autoimmune disease and viral diseases.
A pharmaceutical composition including a salt of rhodizonic acid, an OH anion-generating base, a non-toxic acid, a quinone, a salt-containing sulfite, catechol and, optionally, an acetogenin. The formulation demonstrates positive effects against cancer, autoimmune disease, viruses and provides antioxidant protection against peroxyl, hydroxyl and super oxide radicals.
Summary of the Invention
The present invention overcomes the failings of known compositions and methods of disease treatments as set forth in the prior art by providing a composition that is high in antioxidants, is safe to produce and is adaptable to administration to a patient without the undesirable appeal problems associated with the prior art and is more efficacious against disease states.
The composition of the present invention generally includes a salt of rhodizonic acid and an OH anion-generating base (resulting in croconic acid), a non-toxic acid, a quinone, a salt-containing sulfite, catechol and, optionally, an acetogenin. It may be characterized as a pharmaceutical, a nutraceutical, or a nutratherapeutical composition.
The composition of the present invention is a strong antioxidant. It is also effective against cancer, autoimmune diseases and viruses. The present composition has shown to be an effective antioxidant that works on all forms of the oxygen-related species of free radicals, including the peroxyl, hydroxyl and super oxide radicals. It is also believed that the composition of the present invention may have utility in reducing the side effects of radiation therapy and chemotherapy as well as in radio-sensitizing tumors, thus improving the efficacy of radiation therapy.
The composition of the present invention also overcomes the problems discussed above that are commonly associated with its production by the effective elimination of the noxious fumes. This results in improved laboratory conditions and ease of maintenance of proper conditions.
The present invention also improves the efficacy of the formula against tumors by providing chronic cytotoxic dosing of tumors and by providing a more consistent supply of antioxidants in the bloodstream, therefore providing a more effective in-vivo method of destroying the pernicious oxygen species of free radicals that are implicated in over 50 disease states.
As a further improvement over the art, the various compositions of the present invention achieve their efficacies without the use of such components as copper, potassium, triquinoyl, leuconic acid and rhodozonic acid. The absence of these components without compromising the effectiveness of the various compositions of the present invention is a testament to the unique approach taken herein. By avoiding such extra components both possible adverse patient reactions and cost may be reduced.
Other advantages and features of the present invention will become apparent from the following detailed description and appended claims.
