Preparation and application of aqueous synthetic organ extracts:

Patent specification EP 0 552 516 B1, dated December 2, 1992 (inventor: the author), 38 pages, 25 claims (1).

The invention relates to aqueous synthetic organ extracts which show at least the efficiancy of a corresponding natural organ extract to be used for cosmetic and medical preparations.


A few examples of the organ extracts addressed in this patent specification are

 -   a synthetic placenta extract and its cosmetic action

 -   a combination of a synthetic serum/placenta extract;

 -   a synthetic spleen extract and detection of its metabolic activity;

 -   a synthetic thymus extract and studies of toxicity;

 -   a synthetic serum extract and its effect on damaged fibroblasts;

Gastro explantat under the influence of synthetically produced organ extracts without preservating agent, prepared according to example 4




In (1), the author has summarised the experience with synthetic animal extracts and vegetable extracts collected over many years which were exploited starting in 1960. Patent protection was not sought until the BSE crisis. A synthetic proteinfree organ extract was produced at industrial scale and put to clinical use as early as 15 years before the BSE crisis: PROJECT XXIII in (20).

This essay also shows which of the patented results of (1) as well as (2b, 5a.b, 7a-c, 8a-d, 19) are already being put to use by the industry; see also conclusion (to be found right after VI 4).

Cell line based organ material beats BSE risk in animal organ extracts (2b).

The author compares the properties of SWINE organ extract - prepared from BSE-free cell lines - with the properties of SWINE extract received from fresh organ glands and - with those of synthetic SWINE extract:

Plate 2: The three manufacturing methods, Plate 3: Activity data of the three SWINE extracts.

In the 60ies, the author prepared for the first time natural SWINE placenta extracts for application in cosmetics and medicine (3). These were used in large scale in Brazil - together with natural calf placenta extracts. The latter were preferred for many years by the Japanese cosmetic industry - until the BSE-crisis came up; see patent applications (inventor: the author (4a, b)).

In December 2000 the import of any bovine material was stopped by Asian countries. Japanese customers changed to natural SWINE placenta extracts – in consequence of the author’s publication: of 2001, entitled “PORCINE based organ extracts guarantee full substitution of BOVINE extracts” (4b): The results, collected already in the 60ies and 70ies, are summarized in the following Plates 3a and 3b.

Preparations based on natural SWINE organ material can be used in cosmetics and medicine as long as no prions are to be discovered in such material; but in case – the way out then would be to work with synthetic or cell line material.

Replacement of organ extracts by suitable plant materials such as those on the basis of yeasts IV1, cereals IV 2, and glycoproteins IV 3

The author had worked on this topic long before the outbreak of BSE and the effects of the crisis, namely under the aspect of developing "plant extracts enhancing the metabolism". This work took on added significance under the influence of the BSE crisis as shown by the patent applications with different uses as discussed below from 1985 onwards.


Basis: Yeasts "transformed"

The starting point for the "Yeast Patents" discussed below under IV 1-3 was the search for a potency inhibition factor (P-I factor):

This is because we were able to show in orientation experiments starting in 1937 (21a,b), and then in statistically supported serial experiments with mice from 1946/47 (22) [1000♂ : 4000♀ each time] that yeast in the drinking water inhibits the potency of male mice. This resulted in two different approaches: a) The development of an aphrodisiac testing method and b) the search for the P-I factor mentioned above. Even though the latter did not result in the isolation of such a factor so far, it led instead to the discovery and development of novel yeast preparations with a highly active cell metabolism, detectable, for example, with the aid of the WARBURG method by activation of fermentation and respiration of suitable substrates. Plant cells have stronger cell walls than animal cells so that less stringent conditions are generally used to obtain animal extracts than in the case of plant extracts. We failed to take this into account in our yeast cell extraction experiments with Saccharomyces in 1946 belonging to group b) and therefore arrived at surprising results at the time, which, in subsequent years, led to the results and applications described in patents: IV 1-3 and SPECIAL PART.




IV 1   

Process for the production of thallophytic or bryophytic cytorrhysates, so produced chemicytorrhysates and their use as additional foodstuffs.

EP 0 208 805 A1 vom 19.07.1985 (inventor: author) 34 p (5a), 21 claims

DE 3 402 169 C2 vom 23.01.1984, 34 p und Japan 9807/85 (5b) sowie Teilungen des DE P (5c)



The process entails suitable intact cells undergoing chemicytorrhytic treatment in such a way that they are initially mixed at 0° to 40° C with a water-soluble alkali metal or alkaline earth metal salt with liquefaction and then heated to a temperature above 40°C but below the pasteurisation temperature and finally cooled. These chemicytorrhysate biomasses are suitable as nutrient supplementation for animal feed and drinking water, as plant growth promoter, as cosmetic ingredient for activating skin metabolism and as aphrodisiac for increasing potency. 2 figures, 17 fotographs.


A few examples of the cytorrhysates described in this patent specification are:

Chemicytorrhysates on the basis of wine yeast, baker's yeast and bottom yeast (8 : 90 : 2) show a remarkable plant growth promoter effect as presented in 17 photographs in the patent specification: (5a,c); cf. also ref (18).

Chemicytorrhysate based on Saccharomyces cerevisiae reduces the consumption of feed: growth effectiveness (rabbits): Tab 1 and 2, Diag 1 (next page)

As mentioned above the sexuality of male mice can be inhibited by yeast (statistically guaranteed). Under the influence of one of the cytorrhyzed yeast mentioned in VI 3 (not revealed here) 10-20%  compensation of the inhibition was observed in the following serial experiments, each time with 5000 mice (1000 males with inhibited sexuality).

According to the invention EP 0 208 805 A1 (5a) as starting material we used a) bryophytic and  b) thallophtic cells -  to a) belong musci (mosses), hepaticae (liverworts), and anthroceretes (horned l.); to b) belong algae and fungi, latter classified in ascomycetes sac fungi (saccharomyces, aspergillus, neurospora), basidiomycetes club fungi, and fungi imperfecti; more about the ascomycetes  taken into consideration in the patents ref.(5,7,8) you find in section VI 3.

The German patent application (5a) was divided, and the German patent "Aphrodisiac for increasing potency" DE 3 448 223.7 C2 dated Jan 23, 1984 derived from the former (5c).


Preparations on the basis of Saccharomyces cerevisiae stimulate the growth of bacteria such as Lactobacillus and Bifidus species as well as of regular yeasts. Experimental data in Tab 3:



Thanks to the chemicytorrhysis achieved, the yeast cells became smaller and their cell walls thicker. It is important that only partial dehydration takes place. It is well known that part of the cell water may be removed from plant cells under suitable conditions. In many cases, this removal is accompanied by a reduction of volume with shrivelling. Most ascomycetes species have a highly elastic cell membrane so that the cells become smaller when water is removed. This process may also be called "de-swelling". Under certain conditions, however, chemical changes regarding the cell components are initiated when water is removed which will lead to the release or formation of activity factors. In turn, these have a catalysing effect or an effect that may be explained in another way on systems subject to anaerobic glucose degradation. The chemical changes of the cell components may be controlled and become more pronounced when influences of heat, osmosis or and/or certain chemical substances and/or other physical influences occur at the same time. In that respect, one could also speak of "chemiosmotic thermoplasmolysis".

The probiotic "Yeast-based animal food additive" is based on the experience from the three patents discussed above (5,7,8). It has turned out to be especially useful during the BSE crisis and was tested under the designations H 2000, Y 2000, S 2000, Proval and others in many countries (10): Plate 5 and (24-27)



Plate 5:  Animal food additive H 2000, Y 2000,  S 2000  (10)

H 2000 is a new biological plant-based <<animal food additive>>, tested during the last ten years in large scale on chicken, pigs, sheep, calves, rabbits, dogs, etc. in many countries like Brazil, Japan, USSR (24), Poland (25), Hungary (26), China (27), Switzerland and Germany under the names:

-         Proval (Pro from probiotic, val from value) (Proval sometimes Socoproval)

-         H 2000 (H from Hefe)

-         Y (Y from yeast)

-         S 2000 (S from Saccaromyces cerevisiae).


The decisive viewpoint for the development of H 2000 was to use vegetal starting material.

Starting from yeast like Saccaromyces – applying several combined physical influences in the manufacturing process, we came to new << yeast cell-preparations >>, not anymore reproductive and not anymore fermentating, but activating the yeast-fermentation of glucose and activating the cell-respiration in a high degree: more scientifically spoken: activating anaerobic and aerobic reactions of the cell-metabolisms in general. H 2000 is really something new: H 2000 is not to be confused with the normal food-yeast which is used since long time as donator for proteins and B-vitamins.


H 2000 is added to animal food in very low concentration of 0,1%-0,2%. Such low concentrations are sufficient to activate the cell metabolism in different ways – so increasing the effectivness of foodstuff. The patented manufacturing process does not imply any chemistry, no organic solvents are necessary. H 2000 shows no toxicity. One not can observe any mortality determination DL50 mouse, using 15gr H 2000 pro kg mouse.


In the mentioned filed-experiments with thousands and thousands of chicken, hundreds of pigs, cattle and other animals – never was the observed mortality higher than in the control experiments, if any.

Activation of cell-metabolism by H 2000:


The cell-metabolism activation of H 2000 can be demonstrated: anaerobic by increased fermentation (I), aerobic by increased cell-respiration (II), for instance by WARBURG-method.


I:     Manometric measurement of increased CO2-production of fermenting yeast under H 2000 influence or

II:   Manometric measurements of increased O2 – consumption of liver homogenate under H 2000 influence.


The activation of the anaerobic and aerobic cell-metabolism in cytoplasma respectively in mitochondriae means increasing the ATP-production of the cells. So more energy is available for all energy depending reactions. For instance more energy for synthetic reactions (protein biosynthesis), for catabolic reactions, energy for maintaining concentration-differences between the cell compartments etc.


The cell-metabolism-activation by H 2000 can also be demonstrated by growth experiments in laboratory-tests with guppy-fish or with tadpoles (Xenopus), or in practical animal nutrition experiments. The activity of H 2000 (S 2000, Y 2000) can be easily evaluated determining the fermention increasing factor decribed in V 5,2 and in XXII SPECIAL PART (20):


As an example of the many feed experiments carried out in agriculture with the additive H 2000 (used in amounts of 0.1 to 0.2 %), a few results from piglet breeding are shown in Tables 5a, 5b. The improvements in the daily feed intake were much more pronounced at 58 % and 42 % than in cases where commercial feed additives were used so that feed utilisation improved by 18.7 and 19,5 %, respectively.

In V 6  fig 3-6  you find some TLCs of the new yeast cell preparations described in DE 4042157C 2,


The author has reported about his investigations concerning H 2000 – properties and field results, e.g.in the USSR (24),  in several lectures for instance in Gdansk (25), in Hungary (26), in Bejing (27) – all countries which were interested in saving animal food quantities.


The patents, cited in (8), are protecting all kind of plants one can imagine. In the examples are descriptions of preparations from potatoes, soj germs, white cabbage, different yeasts. Further we tested six of the yeasts mentioned in VI 3 and seventeen other plants, mostly plants serving as human nutrition. The results will be published in a following paper “revealing a very general valid principle” which the author has been studying for many, many years.

To describe this patent and its applications we follow the lecture, given by the author in May 1996 in a colloquium of the Chemical Central Institute of UFSM Santa Maria, RS, Brazil – and his recent publication: Vegetal placenta extracts substitute animal placenta extracts (11c).


We developped grain-placenta preparations, gained from grain carpel brans, incl aleuron proteins, directly and/or via cell culture, under patent protection since 2003 (11a). Concerning rye-placenta cf illustrations 1a/b and Table 6.

The vegetal placenta extracts are able – like the animal ones (12-14) - to increase cell metabolic activity (cell stimulation). This has been proven for rye placenta extracts in WARBURG experiments (Table 7) and in growth tests as metamorphosis acceleration of tadpoles (Table 8).


Analogue to rye placenta preparations (Table 6) we prepared other cereal placenta extracts from bran layers (incl their aleuron cell layer) based on triticale, corn, oats, sorghum, spelt, rice, wheat, barley (11a-d).

Key to illustrations 1a and b:

The rye bran is the hard, browish outer protective skin of the grain; it surrounds the germ and the endosperm.

The bran consists of seven layers which are a concentrated source of dietary fiber; the layers with placenta character are collected together with the aleurone cells.

The inner part of the grain is the endosperm containing proteins and carbohydrates (from the endosperm the flour is produced).

The germ contains the plant embryo.

Cell wall glycoproteines – Collaplant PO (9)


COLLAPLANT PO is prepared from the starting material Platanus occidentalis, splitting the cell wall glycoproteins, which are rich in hydroxyproline and other collagen-amino acids, followed by hydrolysis, and  deproteinization of the rest by citric cycle acids.Qualitätsstandard in Tab 9.

The preparation contains more than 100 components from the classes: carbohydrates, peptides, amino acids, nucleic acid components, acids, vitamins, minerals and trace elements. The peptides are particularly significant.

COLLAPLANT PO  is a suitable substitute for animal collagen – regulating and ameliorating the humidity-maintaining capacity of the skin: Diag 3a.


Diag. 3a: Skin moisture measurements (in scale divisions of Corneometer M 420) of 20 probands (aged  40-70 years) with 1% and 3%   COLLAPLANT PO emulsion and placebo up to 120 mins



Key to Diag. 3a: The initial skin value (control) is almost constant. Aqua dest. shows clear “drying out” after approx 30 mins. The emulsion without COLLAPLANT PO gives 40-60 minute values that fall slightly below the initial skin values in the “drying out zone”. The moisture-retaining effect lasts over two hours with the 1% water/oil emulsion. With the 3% emulsion a clear increase of the initial skin value is discernible even after 120 mins.

V  1

Determination of the respiration-enhancing factor

Experimental details on (A) see section IV 2, following right after the Abstract


The respiration-enhancing factor for yeast preparations with metabolic activity is determined on the basis of the effect on rat liver homogenate according to the WARBURG method and shows the ratio of the oxygen additionally consumed by the standardised rat liver homogenate vis-à-vis a control of the same composition, but not including such a preparation.


The measurement of the enhancement in respiration and of the respiration-enhancing factor is carried out in a WARBURG vessel of a certain volume filled with a buffer (preferably Sörensen buffer of pH 7.4), a specific amount of conditioned rat liver homogenate and the test substance or test solution in accordance with a feed plan. The test substance usually acts on the homogenate at 37°C for a period of 60 minutes. The O2 consumption is determined by a manometer reading after the CO2 resulting from respiration has been adsorbed quantitatively. The oxygen consumption converted to normal conditions, divided by the consumption of a control sample without the test substance, is a direct measure for the respiration-enhancing factor.




V   2

Determination of the amino acid oxidase-inhibiting factor

Experimental details on (B) see section IV 2, following right after the Abstract



In order to determine the L-amino acid oxidase-inhibiting factor (Hmf) of the yeasts of the invention, L-amino acid oxidase solution (1 mg/ml), catalase suspension, buffer pH 7,8 (50 ml 0.2 M Na2P2O7 + 37.5 ml 0.2 M HCl), L-phenyl alanine solution (1 mmol/50 ml, buffer 7.8) and test solution (centrifugate, 103 g, or a yeast suspension) are placed into a WARBURG vessel in accordance with a specific feed plan so that the measurements record both the reaction of L-amino acid oxidase and L-phenyl alanine and the reaction of the enzyme with the test solution (without phenyl alanine) and of the enzyme with the test solution and phenyl alanine. The cylinder inserts are equipped with strips of filter paper saturated with 6 N KOH. The solutions are equilibrated at 37°C; then the enzyme solution is added to the main space containing the test solution or a blind solution to start the reaction. The consumption of oxygen in µl may be recorded as dependent on time and is a direct measure of the inhibiting factor when placed in correlation with the oxygen consumption of the blind experiments. In general, the reading used to determine the Hmf factor is carried out after 60 min.

For evaluation, the measurement graphs "L-amino acid oxidase + phenyl alanine" and "L-amino acid oxidase + yeast solution" are added up to form an overall graph - the oxygen requirement is due to the amino acids contained in the yeast itself - and then places the overall graph which is a measure for the oxygen uptake expected theoretically in correlation to the graph "L-amino acid oxidase + L-phenyl alanine + yeast solution". In case of the yeasts of the invention (subjected to biophysical derivatisation), a reduced consumption of oxygen results which expresses the inhibiting factor in percent (e.g. 0.42 = 42 % inhibition or reduced oxygen consumption). Compared with the respective starting yeasts, which practically correspond to the theoretical overall graphs, the Hmf is significant and achieves values of up to 70 or even 80 %.

In APPENDIX VI 2 an example is described in detail.








V  3

Measurement of wound healing activity

Experimental details on (C) see section IV 2, following right after the Abstract



Another surprising characteristic of most of the yeasts of the invention is their wound healing activity which may be evaluated on the healing of cuts on the back of rats after 6 days. The tension at the wound site of the animals treated was significantly increased over a control group. Remarkably, he superiority of the animals treated vis-à-vis the control group was still measurable in a test on day 21.

In this test, male Wistar rats weighing 210 to 230 g were anaesthetised and the hair on their backs was shorn. Then a straight incision of approx. 4 cm in length was made along the medial line and sutured in three places spaced apart by approx. 1 cm. On days 6, 11, 16 and 21 after the procedure, the wound was opened and 3 narrow slivers of skin taken at a right angle to the wound line including the 1 cm width of the wound line. Then the tension resulting from peeling off the used portion was measured.

2.5 mg/kg of the centrifuge supernatant of the test solution from example 1 were administered on the day of the incision and then daily afterwards. The control group received an application of 2.5 ml/kg of physiological saline in an identical manner. 25 animals per group were tested during each examination.


It was possible to observe that the tension of the wounded skin area increased uniformly in the animals treated with the test solution. During each daily examination, the animals treated showed higher tension of the skin area than the control group. During the early stage on day 6, the difference to the control group was more than 100 %. The results are summarised in Table 10:

V  4

Influence on the reticuloendothelial system (RES)

Experimental details on (D) see section IV 2, following right after the Abstract



Influence on the reticuloendothelial system. Owing to their effect on the RES function in rats inhibited by Benzamine Blue (Tryphanblau) according to the Congo Red method (Kongorot-Methode), an RES-activating activity can be determined for the new yeast preparations. For this purpose, male Wistar rates weighing 210 to 230 g were injected intravenously with 1 ml/kg of 1% Congo Red solution; blood samples were taken after 4 and after 60 minutes. The Congo Red coefficient resulted from the ratio of the decadic absorbance at 500 nm of the serum diluted tenfold. In order to inhibit the function of the RES system, 10 mg/kg of 1% Benzamine  Blue solution were administered by the intraperitoneal route. By measuring the decadic absorbance at 650 nm, it was possible to calculate the inhibition as a corrected decadic absorbance at 500 nm. The Benzamine Blue administration took place 6.5 hours before examining the RES system with Congo Red. In this test, 0.5 ml of the test solution (centrifuge supernatant according to example 1) were administered intraperitoneally 5 hours before the examination. The control group received an adequate amount of physiological saline. 25 animals were tested per group.


We found a mean Congo Red coefficient of 9.4 for the group treated, and a mean Congo Red coefficient of 16.1 for the control group which can be regarded as direct proof for the increasing activity of the yeasts according to the invention on the function of the RES system, because the inhibiting effect caused by Benzamine Blue is cancelled.


The increased metabolic activities shown for the yeast preparations of the invention are totally surprising insofar as the yeasts and yeast preparations are exclusively treated by physical methods. This treatment is generally called "derivatisation". The cells may be derivatised by the influence of cold, laser radiation, sonification and other biophysical methods as well as by a comparatively short-term intense heat treatment. It seem that this causes a significant reduction in size of the yeast cells, preferably to the 0.5 fold or less, while the cell walls become stronger so that the ratio of the mean cell diameter/cell wall thickness is changed by a factor preferably ranging between 5 and 20.

Diagram 4:    Determination of the fermentation increase factor

                  (Translation in Diagram 1)



The fermentation increase factor is the ratio of the CO2 volume released from a fermentation system in a WARBURG experiment based on the CO2 volume generated by the same system without addition of a preparation. The comparative basis is therefore the model of a conventional fermentation.

The measurement of the fermentation increase factor is carried out in a WARBURG vessel of a specific volume charged with a solution consisting of 2.5 g of glucose, 0.4 g of casein peptone, 50 mg of MgSO4, 7H2O and 50 mg of baker's yeast ad 50 ml of tap water. The vessel is then charged with a specific amount of the test preparation according to a feed schedule. The amount of CO2 released at 30°C is determined depending on the time, converted to normal conditions and divided by the standardised CO2 amount generated in the control experiments under the same conditions, but without a test preparation.

The measurable fermentation activity is remarkable for the preparations of the invention as shown by the following Table 11:


Sample No. (origin)

Fermentation increase factor



Preparation (Example 1)


Preparation (Example 2)



Diag. 4 of the drawing shows the development of the CO2 formation in the WARBURG experiment depending on the time. Two groups of comparative experiments are used, i.e. the test solution without the preparation which characterises the progress of conventional fermentation and the yeast-free test solution with the preparation which does not result in any significant influence on fermentation.

The solutions were composed as follows:

Solution I:       50 ml of basic medium + 50 mg of baker's yeast

Solution II:     10 ml of solution I + 50 µl of the preparation of Example 1

Solution III:    10 ml of solution I + 50 µl of the preparation of Example 2

Solution IV:    10 ml of basic medium + 50 µl of the preparation of Example 1

Solution V:     10 ml of basic medium + 50 µl of the preparation of Example 2

The basic medium solution has the above-mentioned composition used for the standard experiments to determine the fermentation increase factor.

[3]  Definition of “ortho-molecular medicine” according to R.Rowghani in (15): Regarding human health, L. Pauling is working on the assumption that „we find well ordered molecules in all cells of the body, a state to be achieved which Pauling called ORTHO-MOLECULAR in the sixties (όρϑός = right;  molecular = regarding molecules). This is the origin of ORTHO-MOLECULAR MEDICINE which has become well known in the meantime and is applied by doctors. It says that an individual will fall ill if he does not have all the necessary molecules in the cells of his body, which results in malfunctions first and often in serious diseases afterwards“.; cf. ADDENDUM in (15).

      Aqueous synthetic proteinfree organ extracts (1) opened the possibility to „smuggle“ lacking important molecules into the organisms.
