We have developed a new hydrogel hemostat composed of hyaluronan (HA) conjugated with inorganic polyphosphate (PolyP). A hemostatic hydrogel, HAX-PolyP, was formed rapidly by mixing aldehyde-modified HA and hydrazide-modified HA conjugated with PolyP (HA-PolyP). Although the gelation rate decreased with...

The visco-elasticity of salivary-protein films is related to mouthfeel, lubrication, biofilm formation, and protection against erosion and is influenced by the adsorption of toothpaste components. The thickness and the visco-elasticity of hydrated films (determined using a quartz crystal microbalance) of...
