VANCOUVER, British Columbia, March 1, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Enox Biopharma, Inc. (VANCOUVER, BC.) CEO, John C. Rewcastle, Ph.D., will present at the IN360 Investment in Innovation Conference on Thursday, March 1 at 10:35 AM EST. The conference is being held at the Ritz Carlton Hotel in Orlando.
The IN360 is the newest iteration of the successful IN3 meeting series, hosted by Elsevier. It is a medical device technology forum and networking meeting. The foundation of the meeting is presentations from emerging companies like Enox Biopharma to audiences principally composed of larger medical device manufacturers and venture capitalists.
Dr. Rewcastle will present Enox's technology whose foundation is the patent protected ability to embed nitric oxide into polymers which renders medical devices antimicrobial. This innovative technology is a potential solution to one of the most significant burdens on medical systems worldwide: hospital acquired infections.
"In the United States alone, it is estimated that $30-45 billion dollars per year are spent due to hospital acquired infections," said Enox CEO John Rewcastle. "Enox is uniquely positioned to address this problem by inhibiting the formation of infections seeded when a medical device such as a catheter is inserted into the body. With nitric oxide as the mechanism of action, devices incorporating our technology will not have issues such as non-effectiveness or antibiotic resistance as do competitive products."
"The IN360 meeting is a uniquely effective environment provide exposure and constructive interaction between emerging and established medical device companies," continued Rewcastle. "Enox will be especially attractive to potential strategic partners in attendance. Our breakthrough technology has the potential of meeting the needs of hospitals worldwide who are currently underserved by existing infection prevention technology."
About Enox Biopharma, Inc.
Enox Biopharma, Inc. is an emerging biotechnology company with proprietary methods to sequester nitric oxide (NO) into polymers. The innate immune system uses NO to block microbial growth - embedding NO into medical devices makes them antimicrobial. NO is also an effective vasodilator which can lead to accelerated wound healing. Enox's device technology is applicable to any indwelling polymer medical device including, but not limited to catheters, endotracheal tubes and central venous catheters. Infections from these devices, which are often not reimbursed by Medicare, represent a massive financial burden to healthcare systems worldwide.
