SinoFresh Non-Antibiotic Nasal Spray Initial Experiments Show Product Has a Complete Killing Activity of (MRSA) Methicillin Resistant Staphylococcus Aureus Strain MW2 Within 30 Seconds
SinoFresh HealthCare, Inc. (OTCBB: SFSH), developer of an over-the-counter nasal spray that kills bacteria and fungi, is pleased to announce up-coming human clinical trials to be conducted under the direction of the University of Chicago, School of Medicine. This study follows an earlier study conducted under the direction of Dr. Barry Kreisiwirth at the Public Health Research Institute at the International Center for Public Health where the following conclusions were reported:
"These initial killing experiments using SinoFresh Nasal Spray each show virtual contact killing of the well characterized community acquired Methicillin Resistant Staphylococcus Aureur strain MW2 had a complete killing activity within 30 seconds in the presence and absence of mucin and at a high bacterial concentration."SinoFresh CEO, Charles Fust states: "We are pleased to see such profound interest emerging from the Medical Research community. Since the nasal passages are a known link in the infectious process of MRSA, I have been personally motivated over the years of SinoFresh Nasal & Sinus Care product development in determining if a new, non-antibiotic approach is feasible. The possibility of having a non-obtrusive, inexpensive preventative measure holds great potential. Based on pharmacologic mechanism of action of our compound, bacterial drug resistance is highly unlikely."
The annual cost in the US to treat hospitalized patients with methicillin resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) infections is estimated to be $3.2 billion to $4.2 billion, according to a new analysis presented at the annual meeting of the "International Society for Pharmacoeconomics and Outcomes Research" (ISPOR) in Washington, D.C. Prolonged hospital stays, including time spent in intensive care units, primarily drive the high costs of treating infections caused by MRSA, a serious, multi-drug resistant pathogen. Currently, the only topical drug product used to rid the nasal reservoir of bacteria is now beginning to show a lack of efficacy due to the emergence of resistant bacteria.
