The application of the PREVENTOGEN liquid polymer in pre-launch clinical studies has shown its effectiveness in dramatically reducing the rate of pin-tract infections related to external fixation procedures
ST. LOUIS, MO / ACCESSWIRE / July 11, 2022 / Prevent-Plus LLC, along with its exclusive US distribution partner ARC Group Medical, is proud to announce the launch of Preventogen™, a topical infection prevention polymer designed to provide clinicians with a more effective tool in the fight against surgical site infections and chronic wounds.
Preventogen™ is a non-antibiotic-based topical infection prevention polymer that is applied as a liquid where it actively kills bacteria, fungi and viruses on contact by lysing the cell membrane. The liquid quickly dries, creating a hydrophobic, elastomeric film barrier on the skin to protect wounds and other skin-related conditions from outside pathogens. The flexible film barrier prevents oxygen from entering the wound, thus stimulating vascular endothelial growth factors for healing. The carbon dioxide that is infused into Preventogen™ during the manufacturing process is released, lowering the pH of the wound bed to optimize the healing environment.
“The data continues to support that the observed clinical benefits provided by Preventogen™ can be a game-changing technology for overall patient and hospital infection prevention, reduction of SSIs and chronic wound healing,” said Brad Chartrand, CEO of Prevent-Plus.
“We’ve received incredible feedback from clinicians and our distribution partners during our pre-launch activities. With over 60 distribution partners across the US and growing to over 250 partners in the next 90 days, we expect a significant reduction in participating facilities’ SSI rates this year, confirming the effectiveness of Preventogen™,” said Tony Cancel, CEO of ARC Group Medical.Tony Cancel, CEO of ARC Group Medical.
