Such material for adhesion prevention is composed of: a 1- to 1,000-?m-thick water-soluble support layer comprising a water-soluble polymer; and a 1- to 1,000-?m-thick adhesion prevention layer comprising a biodegradable polymer. The biodegradable polymer has a structure in which a branched polyalkylene glycol comprising 3 to 8 terminal hydroxyl groups per molecule is bound to a polyhydroxy alkanoic acid, and a mass ratio of the branched polyalkylene glycol relative to the total mass is 1% to 30%.
Abstract: A method of treating teeth and gums within an oral cavity including treating the accessible surfaces and hard-to-reach surfaces of the teeth and gums. The method includes providing an oral care composition including a therapeutic amount of sodium bicarbonate, providing a tool that generates hydrodynamic power, and applying the oral care composition to the accessible surfaces and the hard-to-reach surfaces of the teeth and gums and generating hydrodynamic power within the oral cavity. The combination of the oral care composition and the hydrodynamic power more effectively removes biofilm from the accessible surfaces and the hard-to-reach surfaces of the teeth and gums.
Abstract: A radiation curing ink jet printing method for forming a cured coating having a thickness of 0.5 ?m to 5 ?m includes an ejection step of ejecting a radiation-curable ink composition onto a printing medium, and an irradiation step of irradiating the radiation-curable ink composition on the printing medium with an active radiation having an emission peak wavelength in the range of 350 nm to 420 nm from an active radiation source. The radiation-curable ink composition contains one or more monofunctional monomers and one or more multifunctional monomers in such a proportion that the ratio of the total mass of the monofunctional monomers to the total mass of the multifunctional monomers is 0.45 or more. In the irradiation step, the radiation-curable ink composition is irradiated with the active radiation in an atmosphere having an oxygen concentration lower than the atmospheric oxygen concentration.
Abstract: A culture vessel that can suppress foaming in a culture medium when a common nozzle is used to supply a liquid culture medium and a gas together. This culture vessel includes: a vessel body having an opening portion that communicates with a housing space; a lid that closes the opening portion; and a nozzle that passes through the and extends to the housing space, and supplies a liquid culture medium and a gas together. The nozzle has a vent opening portion that is formed so as to open in a side of the nozzle and serves as a movement path of the gas from inside of the nozzle into the housing space.
