Abstract:

Systems, devices and methods are disclosed for treating fractures and other bone maladies. The systems, devices and methods may include one or both of a stabilizing structure, such as an implant, bone plate, or other device and a fastening assembly, such as an engaging member and a compression member. The stabilizing structure in some embodiments has a proximal section with a transverse aperture and a cross-section that may be shaped to more accurately conform to the anatomical shape of cortical bone and to provide additional strength and robustness in its lateral portions, preferably without requiring significant additional material. The fastening assembly may be received to slide, in a controlled way, in the transverse aperture of the stabilizing structure.

In some embodiments, the engaging member and the compression member are configured so that the compression member interacts at least indirectly with the stabilizing structure and a portion of the engaging member to enable controlled movement between the first and second bone fragments. This configuration is useful for, among other things, compressing a fracture.

The post permanent odor in hair is reduced by (1) minimizing any reactions of hair with residual chemical compounds in hair after the perming process or after the oxidation step and (2) lessen or suppress any odoriferous compounds by decreasing their vapor pressure and (3) depositing in hair long lasting fragrance components to mask or change the malodor to be more pleasant.

Abstract:

The present invention is directed to a hair treatment preparation comprising a payload in an intimate relationship to a polymeric nanostructure, the polymeric nanostructure being reactive to hair or capable of being immobilized onto or in hair. The nanoscopic nature of the entities being engineered ensures three distinct characteristics. First, the imparted attribute can be either nearly permanent or semi-permanent, depending on the attachment chemistry. In the semi-permanent version, the intended effect can be controllably erased by removal of the nanostructure by simple chemical or physical means. Second, the nanoscopic entities are invisibly small. Their presence does not deteriorate the hand or feel of the hair. Third, the nano-technology approach is infinitely flexible and adaptable.

It can be coupled with many existing dyes, colorants, UV absorbers, fragrances, softening agents and the like for hair treatment. Methods for treating hair with the hair treatment preparations of the invention are also encompassed.

Applicant/Assignee: PERICOM TECHNOLOGY (SHANGHAI) CO. LTD, PERICOM TECHNOLOGY INC

Application No.: 11/870244   Filing Date: 10/Oct/2007

Abstract:

Traditional temperature-control products have the problem that the temperature of the working surface reaches the setting temperature too slowly when heating up or recovering from a temperature drop. A traditional temperature control circuit and temperature-settings selector components are modified to solve this problem. When heating begins, the modified circuit increases the initial setting temperature to be above the target setting temperature. The modified circuit then adjusts the setting temperature by measuring the heating power consumption. Once the working surface of the temperature control product reaches the initial setting temperature, the heating power consumption drops and the modified circuit reduces the temperature setting to the target setting temperature. The temperature control product can rapidly achieve the target temperature.

A positive-temperature-coefficient heating component is used in the temperature control product.

Title: COSMETIC AND DERMATOLOGICAL COMPOSITIONS IN PARTICULAR FOR THE TREATMENT OF KERATIN CONTAINING SUBSTRATES

Applicant/Assignee: DR. STRAETMANS CHEMISCHE PRODUKTE GMBH

Application No.: 12/399477   Filing Date: 06/Mar/2009

Abstract:

The present invention relates to cosmetic and/or dermatological compositions for the treatment of keratin containing substrates, comprising synergistic mixtures of modified starch polymers with defined molecular weights and cationic charges in a cosmetically acceptable medium. The synergistic mixtures of modified starches employed to manufacture compositions according to the present invention exhibit significant benefits over the existing modified starches employed according to the state-of-the-art in the treatment of keratin-containing substrates like human or animal hair, skin and nails. Another aspect of the present invention is the stabilization of the modified starch solutions used to manufacture the cosmetic and/or dermatological compositions according to the present invention against the growth of micro-organisms without traditional preservatives.

Title: Linoleic acid preparations for the topical treatment of male and female pattern androgenetic alopecia, age-related alopecia, and keratosis pilaris

Applicant/Assignee:

Application No.: 12/012198   Filing Date: 01/Feb/2008

Abstract:

A preparation for the topical application of linoleic acid to treat male and female androgenetic alopecia, age-related alopecia, and keratosis pilaris contains between about 0.1% and about 10%, preferably between about 1% and about 5%, and specifically about 2% linoleic acid by volume in its carrier vehicle. This acts to correct the local linoleic acid deficiency that exists in the follicles in these conditions and provides linoleic acid to suppress growth of Propionibacterium acnes with resultant reduction in its porphyrin production which in turn reduces microinflammation and altered keratinization that damages follicles and eliminates functioning follicles in alopecia and causes follicle plugging in keratosis pilaris.
