Applicant/Assignee: E.I. DU PONT DE NEMOURS AND COMPANY

Application No.: 12/172385   Filing Date: 14/Jul/2008

Abstract:An acid-resistant peptide solubility tag (an "inclusion body tag") is provided that is effective in producing peptides of interest in an insoluble form. Fusion peptide constructs comprising the inclusion body tag fused to a peptide of interest are provided. An acid cleavable peptide moiety separates the inclusion body tag from the peptide of interest so that acid hydrolysis can be used during subsequent processing steps to separate the tag from the desired peptide of interest. The present inclusion body tag's resistance to acid hydrolysis facilitates easier and cleaner separation of the peptide of interest after acid hydrolysis. Specifically, a ketosteroid isomerase-derived inclusion body tag is provided that has been engineered to be more resistant to acid hydrolysis.

Applicant/Assignee: INVISTA NORTH AMERICA S.A. R.L

Application No.: 12/236797   Filing Date: 24/Sep/2008

Abstract:Short-cut synthetic or cellulose-based natural reinforcing fiber is provided for polymer composites in a form that feeds uniformly into a compounding process such as is carried out in a single or twin screw extruder or double armed batch mixer using conventional volumetric or gravimetric metering equipment. Upon being fed to the compounding process, the reinforcing fiber disperses and becomes uniformly distributed in a matrix resin. The reinforcing fibers are provided in the form of cut fiber bundles with a finish composition coating the fibers and forming fugitive inter-fiber bonds within each cut fiber bundle. This provides inter-fiber coherency such that the cut fiber bundles can be fed uniformly via a loss-in-volume or loss-in-weight screw feeder device to a compounding process. Upon mixing in the compounding process with a matrix polymer, the fugitive bonds break, and the cut fiber bundles disintegrate into separate individual fibers dispersed in the matrix polymer. A process for producing the short-cut reinforcing fiber is also provided.

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

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.

Applicant/Assignee:

Application No.: 12/325181   Filing Date: 29/Nov/2008

Abstract:A mixture of an aqueous solution, essential oils and mechanically extracted Phaeophyte kelp cytoplasm results in an emulsion with cosmetic and therapeutic properties. The preparation may be used on human and animal hair or skin. The moisturizing properties of the kelp cytoplasm provide the aqueous solution to the hair (keratin) which is absorbed, causing the hair to swell, and become heavier and more pliable. The natural oxidation agent preserves the mixture as well as providing a fresh oxygen in a spray when used. The alginate gels and oils in the emulsion coat the hair strands to reduce breakage and splitting and add weight to the strand. The preparation dries with gel capsules, which release moisture over time for a long-lasting effect. The preparation also contains, and may be supplemented with fuciodans, iodine, phlorotannins which reduce inflammation, prevent scaly skin, and act as an antibiotic, respectively, on dry chapped skin. The preparation seals off the cracks from the environment while trapping moisture pockets. This provides an environment conducive for healing.

Abstract:An adhesive for a wig, a wig using the same, and methods of manufacturing the both are such that the adhesive for a wig has a single layer, is bondable unpeelably to the inner side of a wig base, and is bondable by pressure re-peelably to scalp, wherein the adhesive layer (4) is provided to fix needle foot portions of hair (3) penetrated to the inner side of the wig base (2). One side of the adhesive layer (4) is bondable by chemical reaction to the inner side of the wig base (2) during gelation reaction of the adhesive solution applied to the inner side of the wig base (2), while the other side is bondable by pressure re-peelably to scalp. One side of the adhesive layer (4) has the hair fixing function to fix the needle foot portion of hair (3A) planted penetrating the inner side of the wig base (2). Since the wig (1) is made as double layer structure with a single adhesive layer (4), it is light-weighted, and since the adhesive layer (4) has re-peelability, it can be used repeatedly, resulting in low cost.

Title: Use of Iontophoresis and Ultrasound to Deliver Melanin or Other Chromophores for Laser Hair Removal

Applicant/Assignee:

Application No.: 11/951720   Filing Date: 06/Dec/2007

Abstract:The method disclosed includes combining iontophoresis and ultrasound to deliver the appropriate chromophores to blonde, grey, white, vellus, and other non-pigmented or laser resistant hair follicles to facilitate photothermolysis hair removal using a laser, Intense Pulsed Light (IPL), a combination of laser and RF energy, or a combination of IPL and RF. This technique preferentially ultra-exposes the hair follicles to light energy which is absorbed preferentially by naturally and synthetic elements in and around the hair follicle. The result is focused photothermolysis damage resulting in death of the hair producing tissue. The combined use of iontophoresis and ultrasound with the appropriate chromophore and laser light allows for immediate and permanent removal of unwanted hair in selected locations on the body of mammals. This combination is so effective that the patient can be treated with single, or at least minimal, office visitations, thereby eliminating the need to continuously prepare and re-prepare the skin with melanin or other chromophores prior to multiple-in office-laser or IPL treatments for completing desired hair removal results. Additionally, this method discloses the use of iontophoresis together with High Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU) and also Radio Frequency (RF) energy combined with High Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU) to specifically provide necrotizing energy doses to target the regenerative zones of the hair and accomplish hair removal.

Abstract:A system and methods are provided for targeted and individualized delivery of multiple skin benefit agents to the skin of a user. The image of a predetermined treatment area of the user's skin is first captured by an imaging device. The captured image data is then analyzed by a computing device to generate a unique skin profile for the user, which is indicative of the skin conditions at the predetermined treatment area. Based on such skin profile, a printing device prints out one or more cosmetic delivery sheets that can be applied to the predetermined treatment area. Each of the cosmetic delivery sheets contains a substrate with multiple isolated, discrete regions, while at least two of the regions are imprinted with different skin benefit agents for treating different skin conditions of the predetermined treatment area according to the unique skin profile of the user. Targeted delivery of one or multiple skin benefit agents to the skin of a user may be achieved by applying and conforming to the skin a flexible cosmetic delivery sheet having associated therewith, on a first surface, one or multiple cosmetic treatment compositions provided in isolated, discrete regions, while an opposite surface of the sheet is provided with imprinted, predetermined regions corresponding to respective isolated, discrete regions on the first surface of the sheet. The user manipulates the sheet at the imprinted predetermined regions in a manner indicated by the imprinted predetermined regions to release one or multiple skin treatment compositions from the isolated, discrete regions and deliver effective amounts of one or multiple skin benefit agents to the targeted areas of the skin underlying the isolated, discrete regions of the sheet.

Abstract:A foamed delivery system having at least two components: a foam and an additive that is associated with, carried by or delivered by the foam. The foam is a stable foam that has a liquid matrix, gas bubbles and a structuring agent that forms a lamellar or vesicular cage structure without generating a gel imparting a rubbery texture. The lamellar cage structure entraps at least a substantial portion of the gas bubbles and liquid matrix therein to retain the gas bubbles and liquid in a sufficiently compact structure that substantially prevents drainage of the liquid matrix and coalescence and creaming of the gas bubbles to maintain stability of the foam even when the foam is subjected to heat shock. Combined with the stable foam structure the distribution and release of the additive during application is significantly improved.

Title: ACCOUTERMENT HAVING THERMAL TRANSFER PRINTING PATTERNS

Applicant/Assignee:

Application No.: 12/146168   Filing Date: 25/Jun/2008

Abstract:An accouterment having patterns printed by thermal transfer printing process is provided. The present invention sticks transfer printing layers having patterns or traceries pre-printed thereon onto an inside surface and an outside surface of an accouterment to transfer the patterns onto the accouterment. The patterns are then spray coated with a layer of glossy paint. Such a layer of glossy paint makes the patterns achieving stereoscopic effect. And when the accouterment endures a light refraction, the patterns on the inside surface and the outside surface of the accouterment are visually overlapped one to another so as to generate a stereoscopic impression.
