Application of Octanoic acid

  • CN201710877397.6 discloses a preparation method of high-purity antivenom, including material and preparation process. The present invention adopts the preparation process of pepsin digestion, n-octanoic acid precipitation separation and ion chromatography purification, uses n-octanoic acid to induce precipitation for hetero-impurity proteins other than immunoglobulin (IgG), and uses n-octanoic acid for precipitation to remove hetero-impurities The albumen is purified by ion chromatography again, and the technical scheme that the purity of antivenom F (ab’) 2 is improved has overcome the problems and deficiencies that the prior art exists that the purity is difficult to improve, and that the snake venom injury suffers from allergic side effects, The anti-snake venom F(ab’) 2 preparation achieves the purpose of improving the purity index and reducing the allergic side effects of snake venom-injured patients.

  • CN200910003964.0 provides a percutaneous absorption patch, which is a percutaneous absorption patch of fentanyl or its citrate, and is composed of a backing layer, a pharmaceutical preparation layer, and a protective layer. The backing layer is made of a material that is not permeable to drugs; the drug preparation layer is made of adhesive, polyethylene glycol monohexadecyl ether, n-octanoic acid and/or oleic acid, diethanolamine laurate and fenamic acid. It consists of tanyl or fentanyl citrate; the protective layer is a film or paper whose surface is impermeable to the drug and covered with a silicon polymer that can be removed before use. The weight ratio of adhesive, polyethylene glycol monohexadecyl ether, n-octanoic acid and/or oleic acid, diethanolamine laurate and fentanyl or fentanyl citrate in the pharmaceutical preparation layer is: 100:1~10:1~10:1~5:3~15. The transdermal absorption patch of the present invention can be well applied to the skin, and the drug fentanyl can be absorbed quantitatively by the human body through the skin for a long time, so the analgesic effect is lasting, safe and effective.

Preparation of Octanoic acid
