  • Patent number: 10385676
    Abstract: Configurations of tools, e.g., as used in the tool strings of electrical submersible pump systems, that prevent the separation of the tool string into two disconnected units upon breaking of a tool within the tool string. In an example configuration, such a non-parting tool includes a head and base connected to each other via a housing and a shaft extending through the tool, as well as mechanical stops affixed to the shaft that limit, upon breaking of the housing, the relative motion between the head and base.

  • Patent number: 10382459
    Abstract: Threat detection instrumentation is simplified by providing and updating labels for computing objects in a context-sensitive manner. This may include simple labeling schemes to distinguish between objects, e.g., trusted/untrusted processes or corporate/private data. This may also include more granular labeling schemes such as a three-tiered scheme that identifies a category (e.g., financial, e-mail, game), static threat detection attributes (e.g., signatures, hashes, API calls), and explicit identification (e.g., what a file or process calls itself). By tracking such data for various computing objects and correlating these labels to malware occurrences, rules can be written for distribution to endpoints to facilitate threat detection based on, e.g., interactions of labeled objects, changes to object labels, and so forth.

  • Patent number: 5461081
    Abstract: Universal ophthalmic pharmaceutical vehicles which increase in viscosity upon instillation in the eye are disclosed. Ophthalmic compositions of the universal vehicle and a pharmaceutically active drug are also disclosed. In one embodiment, the vehicle gels upon instillation in the eye. In another embodiment, suspension vehicles having superior physical stability are provided.

  • Patent number: 5422116
    Abstract: Disclosed is a sustained release liquid aqueous ophthalmic delivery system and a method of providing a slow and sustained release of ophthalmic treating agents to the eye of a mammal which comprises administering to the eye of a said mammal an effective amount of a homogeneous liquid aqueous ophthalmic pharmaceutical composition, of pH between about 3.0 and about 6.2, which is adminstrable in drop form and which comprises an ophthalmically effective concentration of a said ophthalmic treating agent and about 0.05% to about 10% by weight of the polymer chitosan; said polymer consisting essentially of(A) monomeric .beta.(1.fwdarw.4)-D-glucosamine linked units and of(B) monomeric .beta.(1.fwdarw.
