  • Publication number: 20180125772
    Abstract: This application provides, among other things, novel aqueous biphasic compositions comprising two distinct aqueous phases, useful for combining and delivering poorly compatible ingredients, for example to deliver effective levels of cationic antibacterial agents in combination with anionic polymers, e.g. that protect against erosion and staining, by addition of a stabilizing amount of a polyamine, e.g. lysine, and methods for making and using the same.

  • Publication number: 20180110228
    Abstract: Antimicrobial compositions and methods for depositing or coating the antimicrobial or antibacterial compositions on a substrate to prevent microbial adhesion are provided. The antimicrobial composition may include a cationic polymer having a poly-allylamine backbone. A portion of the poly-allylamine backbone may be functionalized with at least one of a guanidine functional group and a biguanide functional group.

  • Publication number: 20180043190
    Abstract: This application provides, among other things, novel aqueous oral care compositions useful for combining and delivering poorly compatible ingredients, for example to deliver effective levels of cationic antibacterial agents in combination with short chain polyphosphate salts that protect against erosion and staining, by addition of a stabilizing amount of an anionic surfactant and methods for making and using the same.

  • Patent number: 9109499
    Abstract: An interface between an engine block and a cylinder head is provided. The interface includes a ferrule that accommodates relative movement between the cylinder head and the engine block while maintaining sealing of fluid passages that extend between the cylinder head and the engine block. The interface thus forms a fluid passage seal assembly.

  • Patent number: 8315957
    Abstract: Aspects of the subject matter described herein relate to predicting phenotypes. In aspects, a probabilistic predictor is used to summarize a relationship between a set of biological predictors and a phenotype. The probabilistic predictor may use a function that is selected based on the type of the phenotype (e.g., binary, multi-state, or continuous). The probabilistic predictor may use genetic and/or epigenetic information. The probabilistic predictor may be trained on a portion of the data in conjunction with predicting phenotypes in another portion of the data. The probabilistic predictor may be used for various analyses including genome-wide association analysis and gene-set enrichment analysis.
