What is Preventogen?
Prevent-Plus has just recently launched a groundbreaking technology into the medical and retail segments. Developed by a NASA Polymer Scientist and a world renowned Dermatologist from NYU, this new advanced infection prevention technology is a non-antibiotic, microbicidal liquid polymer that forms a protective film barrier over the skin. The microbicidal agent in the polymer kills microbes (bacteria, fungi and viruses) on contact, and then forms a flexible, organic, odorless and biodegradable barrier that protects the wound from harmful elements, such as water, dirt and germs. This flexible protective barrier also prevents oxygen entering the wound, lowering the pH and creating an optimal healing environment. This polymer contains NO antibiotics, which puts this technology in a whole new class of advanced infection prevention and wound healing. In a recently published prospective, randomized clinical study, the results were outstanding in the reduction of pin site infections in orthopedic trauma applications: – For patient-level analysis, 33.3% of patients in the control group experienced infection, while none of the patients in the PREVENTOGEN group experienced infection (0%) – For pin-level analysis, 23.3% were infected in the control group, while none (0%) were infected in the PREVENTOGEN group – The application of the PREVENTOGEN liquid polymer has shown its effectiveness in dramatically reducing the rate of pin-tract infections related to external fixation procedure With these new data, Prevent Plus is continuing to build evidence of this polymer’s potential as a new class of transformative therapeutic to prevent infection in areas with high un-met clinical need. Prevent Plus currently has two brands in the marketplace: PREVENTOGEN www.preventogen.com and DuraDerm SPORT www.duradermsport.com and are looking to expand their portfolio into animal health, acne treatment and environmental sterilization and decontamination.
