Frankly folks, I'm in over my head on this one. I came across the term "upregulation of NGF"
and have tried to solve my own queries as to what it all means . . . hence these links. -- barb

- IL-1b contributes to the inflammation-induced increase in
nerve growth factor [NGF] levels and inflammatory hyperalgesia
"... Our results demonstrate that IL-1b contributes to the upregulation of
NGF during inflammation and the NGF has a major role in the production of
inflammatory pain hypersensitivity. B. Safieh-Garabedian, S. Poole*, A. Allchorne*,

A few examples . . .
- Deodorant compositions
Causton , et al. - Abstract
A deodorant composition for topical application, which comprises a plurality of
particles dispersed and a carrier, each particle comprising a glass microsphere at least
partially coated with zinc oxide, a zinc salt, or any mixture of two or more thereof.
- Fragrance dispenser
Schuehrer , et al. - Abstract
A fragrance dispenser having a reservoir to receive an aroma carrier, the fragrances of
which can escape at least partially through a dispensing opening when pressure is exerted
onto the reservoir. The reservoir may have the shape of a bottle, wherein the dispensing
opening, which is preferably designed as a snap-off opening, is disposed in the thinner
region, i.e at the neck of the bottle. A packaging element preferably extends beyond the
dispensing region of the reservoir, the packaging element being designed in that region
in such a way that it interacts with a seal of the dispensing opening of the reservoir.
The reservoir or packaging element may be designed as a free-standing package.
- Fragrant ink-jet ink
Leu , et al. - Abstract
A fragrant ink-jet ink including: a fragrant agent, a surfactant, wherein a boiling point of
the surfactant is above 78.degree. C. and a Hydrophilic Lipophilic Balance (HLB)
of the surfactant is in a range of about 5 to 16, a colorant, and a solvent. The fragrant
agent can be a natural fragrant agent, a synthetic fragrant agent or a mixture thereof.
The amount of the fragrant agent is about 0.01 wt % to 10.0 wt %.
- Non-foaming water fountain method
Just what we need -- another unidentified source of air pollutant perfume! - barb
Ferguson , et al. Abstract
A method adjusting the fragrance level in a room incrementally adds a fragrant,
non-foaming emulsified composition to a fountain in the room. The composition
has a siloxane anti-foam agent and water solution, a block co-polymer, denatured 200
proof alcohol and fragrance oil. Alternative compositions contain a solubilized fragrance
or an insoluble fragrance oil for adding to water. The compositions may be provided
in a concentrated form, for addition to a pre-existing water supply in a recirculating
fountain, or in a dilute form for use as the recirculating fluid in the fountain. The
compositions are clear and do not foam when used in a recirculating fountain. The
compositions provide fragrance at a release rate significantly greater than solid or gel
air fresheners with the same concentration of fragrance. Methods of fragrancing a room
with the compositions are disclosed as well.
- Perfume compositions
Perring , et al. - Abstract
A perfume composition contains at least 15% by weight one or more defined aldehydes,
and at least 30% by weight of at least one of five defined categories of hydroxylic
materials, ketones, ethers, esters and nitriles. The perfume composition exhibits a
deodorant effect, is particularly good at reducing sulphurous malodors, and is suitable
for use in deodorant products, personal products and laundry treatment products.
- Perfumed liquid household cleaning fabric treatment and deodorizing
compositions packaged in polyethylene bottles modified to preserve perfume integrity
Woo , et al. - Abstract
Bottle aqueous household cleaning, fabric treatment and deodorizing compositions
comprising surfactant, and a perfume which contains a substantial proportion of
hydrophobic perfume ingredients having a ClogP of greater than 3. The bottles are
made of high density polyethylene wherein the bottles have a continuous inner surface
layer of nylon, polyetheneterephthalate or fluorinated polyethylene in order to prevent
migration into and/or transmission through the high density polyethylene of the
hydrophobic perfume ingredients.
