Iodine is readily miscible in silicones and will pass freely into and out of this material at highly predictable and constant rates. Iodinated silicone is thus an effective, controlled-rate delivery system for molecular iodine. This delivery system was shown to produce bacteriostatic and bactericidal effects in vitro, and at least bacteriostatic effects in vivo. Iodinated silicone produced a protective effect against the morbidity of infection in the mouse.
