Hyaluronic acid is a constituent of the skin and helps to maintain hydration. The oral intake of hyaluronic acid increases water in the horny layer as demonstrated by human trials, but in vivo kinetics has not been shown. This study confirmed the absorption, migration, and excretion of (14)C-labeled hyaluronic acid ((14)C-hyaluronic acid). (14)C-hyaluronic(More)
Hyaluronan (HA) is a component that is particularly abundant in the synovial fluid. Randomized, double-blinded, placebo-controlled trials carried out between 2008 and 2015 have proven the effectiveness of HA for the treatment of symptoms associated with synovitis, and particularly, knee pain, relief of synovial effusion or inflammation, and improvement of(More)
The photoconversion of a crystalline-phase precursor, 6,13-dihydro-6,13-ethanopentacene-15,16-dione (PDK), into pentacene was examined. Upon irradiation with 470 nm light, the photoconversion proceeded even in the crystalline phase. Although the rate of the crystalline phase photoconversion was much slower than that in solution, quantitative photoconversion(More)
