Health Care-Associated Infections

According to the US Department of Health and Human Services, 1 in 25 hospital patients has a health care – associated infection at any given time, and these infections are responsible for the loss of tens of thousands of lives and billions of dollars in preventable health care costs each year.

Despite sanitation protocols and the implementation of comprehensive aseptic technique by healthcare professionals, which include Hand Hygieneing, gloving, aprons, surface sanitation, isolation and rigorous quality controls, patients are not entirely isolated from pathogens. Once a patient develops an infection, even the best treatments currently available are becoming less effective. Antibiotic use has also now become a public health issue as bacterial drug resistance has been confirmed across all classes of pathogens.

Zurex Pharma plans to complete the development and commercialization of novel, proprietary products designed to prevent or minimize HAI and targeted for several distinct critical care areas:

  • Surgical site infections (SSI)
  • Patient Bathing & Patient Prep
  • Wound care
  • Catheter-related bloodstream infections (CRBSI) in central line catheters
