A liquid composition for improving the facial contour and shape of the human or animal face by injection, the liquid composition comprising water and at least one of the following components A, B and C: at least one component A, which leads to an osmotic concentration in the range from 500 to 5000 mOsm in the liquid composition, at least one high viscosity component B, which leads to a viscosity of the liquid composition in the range from 10 to 1500 mPas, at least one micro-particles component C, comprising micro-particles with an average particle size not larger than 0.25 mm, preferably in the range of 0.001 mm to 0.25 mm, and optionally comprising a local anesthetic compound D.


This invention relates to novel uses of recombinant clostridial neurotoxins exhibiting decreased duration of effect, in particular uses for the treatment of patients having experienced muscle-related disorders and/or injuries.


Patent
Merz Pharmaceuticals GmbH | Date: 2017-02-01

The present invention relates to a composition comprising a pentacyclic triterpenoid compound or a pharmaceutically acceptable salt thereof, and at least one further component C for use in a method for local treating or preventing a condition associated with an undesired local subcutaneous fat deposit in a mammal, wherein said compound is injected into said local subcutaneous fat deposit aiming for its reduction. Further, the present invention relates to the cosmetic use of such composition.


Patent
Merz Pharmaceuticals GmbH | Date: 2017-02-01

The present invention relates to a composition comprising a compound or a pharmaceutically acceptable salt thereof having a structure according to formula (I)_(1-4) alkyl residue and residues R2-R5 are defined as specified in the description and at least one further component C for use in a method for local treating or preventing a condition associated with an undesired local subcutaneous fat deposit in a mammal, wherein said compound is injected into said local subcutaneous fat deposit aiming for its reduction. Further, the present invention relates to the cosmetic use of such composition.


The present invention relates to a process for depleting epoxide species in epoxy-crosslinked polysaccharide gel compositions. In addition, the present invention relates to crosslinked polysaccharide gel compositions made by said process and their use in cosmetic and therapeutic applications.


Patent
Merz Pharmaceuticals GmbH | Date: 2017-02-08

The present invention relates to polysaccharide soft tissue fillers comprising heparosan and processes for their preparation. The polysaccharide soft tissue fillers of the present invention are advantageously used in therapeutic or cosmetic applications such as for the filling of wrinkles.


Patent
Merz Pharmaceuticals GmbH | Date: 2017-01-11

This invention relates to novel recombinant clostridial neurotoxins exhibiting increased duration of effect and to methods for the manufacture of such recombinant clostridial neurotoxins. These novel recombinant clostridial neurotoxins comprise a random coil domain, and the methods comprise the steps of inserting a nucleic acid sequence coding for a random coil domain into a nucleic acid sequence coding for a parental clostridial neurotoxin and expression of the recombinant nucleic acid sequence comprising the random coil domain-coding sequence in a host cell. The invention further relates to novel recombinant single-chain precursor clostridial neurotoxins used in such methods, nucleic acid sequences encoding such recombinant single-chain precursor clostridial neurotoxins, and pharmaceutical compositions comprising the recombinant clostridial neurotoxin with increased duration of effect.


This invention relates to novel uses of recombinant clostridial neurotoxins exhibiting decreased duration of effect, in particular uses for the treatment of patients suffering from a limited range of muscle extension, in particular from flexion contracture, in particular flexion contracture of the knee, and more particularly uses for the treatment of such patients having experienced a total knee arthroplasty.


This invention relates to novel uses of recombinant clostridial neurotoxins exhibiting decreased duration of effect, in particular uses for the treatment of different forms of back pain, in particular recurrent low back pain.


Patent
Merz Pharmaceuticals GmbH | Date: 2017-04-19

The present invention relates to a sterile in situ cross-linkable polysaccharide compositions for augmenting, filling or replacing soft tissues in various cosmetic and therapeutic applications. The composition comprises a first polysaccharide derivative functionalized with a nucleophilic group and a second polysaccharide derivative functionalized with an electrophilic group. Said nucleophilic and electrophilic functional groups spontaneously form in situ covalent linkages following co-injection in the body of a patient, resulting in the formation of a cross-linked hydrogel at the site of co-injection.
