From a German biotechnical patent:

The invention concerns human nucleic acid sequences coding for gene products or segments thereof, functional genes coding for at least one biologically active polypeptide, and their use. The invention also concerns polypeptides that can be obtained from these sequences and their use. A database is consulted, which is comprised of so-called ESTs. ESTs (Expressed Sequence Tags) are sequences of cDNAs, i.e., inversely transcribed mRNAs, thus the molecules that reflect gene expression.

From a Japanese medical article:

Theophylline is widely used as a bronchodilator for bronchial asthma, as well as acute upper respiratory tract infection accompanied by wheezing, etc. However, it is known to have severe side effects. Fourteen cases of theophylline-induced acute rhabdomyolysis have been described, three of these since the first reports of acute renal failure. Clarithromycin is a macrolide antibiotic that was recently developed and is widely used clinically because it has a broad antibacterial spectrum, from Staphylococcus to Mycoplasma. Macrolide antibiotics pose the risk of raising blood concentrations of theophylline and exacerbating its toxicity by inhibiting the cytochrome P-450 metabolic pathway of the liver. The authors describe a case of rhabdomyolysis which is attributed to the concurrent use of standard doses of theophylline and clarithromycin and which eventually led to renal failure.

From a French chemical patent:

Preferably, said supplemental compound is chosen from among glycols or propanols (such as isopropanol and triethanolamine) or mixtures thereof. More preferably, it is selected from monoethylene glycol, propanol, triethanolamine (possibly mixed with mono- and/or diethanolamine) or a mixture thereof. Surprisingly, due to the additive according to the invention, the following results were obtained: (1) the additive has a good storage stability, for at least three days, at ambient temperature of approximately 20C.

From a Russian optics patent:

Optical instruments are improved by utilizing optical components that are resistant to the influence of external factors. Optical instrument manufacturers utilize glass containing silicate, phosphate, and borate, for example. The most widespread component of optical glass is lead oxide, which provides its characteristic optical properties, but also results in reduced chemical stability, thermal stability, and mechanical strength. Phosphate and borate glasses also have poor operating characteristics.
