Last week, eXegenics announced that it has created a new class of anti-bacterial agents
that it believes shows promise in the fight against certain drug resistant bacteria.
According to Carabello, Unotron's pioneering mice design configurations and materials allow these patented products to be easily washed, immersed and disinfected by commercial-grade detergents and anti-bacterial agents
while providing users with comfort, control and reliability.
Hennessey added, "The continuation of this partnership complements the breadth of our relationship with Schering-Plough, which also includes alliances to develop new treatments for asthma and novel anti-bacterial agents
While our current products effectively kill bacteria, viruses, and fungi - such as mold and mildew - the new Mycosol technology should provide us with an expanded arsenal of proprietary, safe, broad spectrum, long-term anti-mold, anti-bacterial agents
Previous attempts to include anti-bacterial agents
in fibers and materials, such as cotton, have failed -- due largely to being topically treated, leading to a loss of efficacy during the washing process.
As it is frequently difficult to control its growth by using conventional methods of treatment and disinfection including high-temperature water pasteurization, ultra-violet radiation, chlorination and other anti-bacterial agents
, this new water filter should have a major impact on the efficacy of infection control procedures based on the laboratory study.
Finally there is Fix, a skin-soothing balm that contains 5 anti-bacterial agents
that kill bacteria responsible for swelling, sensitivity, and redness of skin caused by breakouts.
In 1996, Vicuron became a separate company focusing on the development of anti-infective therapeutics, including anti-fungal and anti-bacterial agents
for the hospital setting.
Scoop 'N Flush also contains anti-bacterial agents
to prevent the growth of odor-causing bacteria in the litter box.
Lederberg, co-editor of the National Institute of Medicine book `Emerging Infections' said, "It is clear that new classes of anti-bacterial agents
are urgently needed to treat infections caused by Gram-positive bacteria, particularly in hospitals, where resistance is most widespread.
The company is well known for the original discovery and development of new quinolone anti-bacterial agents
, such as ofloxacin and levofloxacin.
