Molecular traps for certain undesirable materials
Publication date: 2014
This invention comprises composition of and a process/method of using oral administration of a composition of Molecularly imprinted polymers (MIPs) imprinted with one or more of undesirable material/s for reducing the amount of one or more of the undesirable material/s being absorbed from the digestive tract of a living body. The MIPs in the compositions have capability of trapping specific undesirable material/s from food in the digestive tract of a living body. This invention also comprises a MIP specific for palmitic acid. In Vivo and InVitro Illustrations have been given for reduction in absorption in glucose and palmitic acid; and InVitro illustration for monocrotophos specific MIP and its specificity.; The MIPs are consumed by oral administration of the MIPs or compositions containing MIP, either by consuming (a) a food in which MIP/s is/are incorporated/involved in the food, or (b) a tablet containing the MIP and the food, or (c) a sachet of MIP containing composition and the food, or (d) a fluid to which a composition of MIP/s is added and the food. The undesirable material may be an undesired nutrient, an undesired food ingredient, a pesticide/pesticide residue, a poison, bacteria, viruses or cells.
