"Biocoat has deep experience in the application of low-friction hydrophilic coatings for catheters used in the cardiovascular, neurovascular, peripheral vascular and structural heart markets," said Adam Spence Vice President of Marketing and Sales Steve Maxson in a release.
(10) In a study comparing hydrophilic, hydrophobic, and silicone IOLs, it was found that the amount of aqueous flare increased in all three types of IOL in the first month compared to preoperative levels; however, the amount of aqueous flare observed with the hydrophobic IOL was significantly higher than with the other types of IOLs.
This is due to the fact that with time, a part of the hydrophilic coating washes off with the moisture that condenses over the evaporator core from the air-stream.
Reviewing the data, however, a UTI risk reduction associated with hydrophilic coating of 20% seems to be present in both these articles based on the same two randomized controlled studies (Cardenas & Hoffman, 2009; De Ridder et al., 2005); risk ratio and 95% confidence interval is specified to 0.80 (0.65, 0.99) in favor of hydrophilic-coated catheters (Bermingham et al., 2013; Prieto et al., 2015).

Assigned: Goodyear Tire and Rubber Key statement: The invention relates to a rubber composition and tire with tread thereof containing a functionalized elastomer and reinforcement comprised of rubber reinforcing carbon black and a combination of prehydrophobated precipitated silica and at least one of hydrophilic precipitated silica together with at least one of short fibers and resin product of methylene acceptor and methylene donor or hydrophilic precipitated silica having been hydrophobated in situ within the rubber composition by a silica coupling agent, optionally together with at least one of reinforcement additive comprised of short fibers and reinforcement additive comprised of resin product of methylene acceptor and methylene donor.
In Worthington's study, the sphere is described as "wetted sphere" and "sphere coated with soot"; in May's study, the sphere is described as "clean sphere" and "handled sphere." Essentially, "wetted sphere" and "clean sphere" in their studies, to put it more precise, are hydrophilic sphere; "sphere coated with soot" and "handled sphere" are hydrophobic sphere.
