  • Patent number: 10201561
    Abstract: An object of the present invention is to provide an antiviral fiber assembly in which an antiviral agent is retained with chemical stability over a long period of time, and which is gentle to the human body. A further object of the present invention is to provide a fiber assembly with cellulose sulfate that can exhibit sufficient antiviral activity over a long period of time. Further, another object of the present invention is to provide a textile product obtained using such a fiber assembly. The present invention provides a fiber assembly with cellulose sulfate, wherein the hyaluronidase inhibitory activity is 50% or higher; and a process for producing a fiber assembly with cellulose sulfate, including treating a fiber assembly with an aqueous cellulose sulfate solution and drying, then treating the same with a pH buffer solution and drying.

  • Patent number: 10195312
    Abstract: A modified starch material for biocompatible hemostasis, biocompatible adhesion prevention, tissue healing promotion, absorbable surgical wound sealing and tissue bonding, when applied as a biocompatible modified starch to the tissue of animals. The modified starch material produces hemostasis, reduces bleeding of the wound, extravasation of blood and tissue exudation, preserves the wound surface or the wound in relative wetness or dryness, inhibits the growth of bacteria and inflammatory response, minimizes tissue inflammation, and relieves patient pain. Any excess modified starch not involved in hemostatic activity is readily dissolved and rinsed away through saline irrigation during operation. After treatment of surgical wounds, combat wounds, trauma and emergency wounds, the modified starch hemostatic material is rapidly absorbed by the body without the complications associated with gauze and bandage removal.
