Product Will Create A Barrier To Block The Attachment Of The Virus To The Nasal Membranes
BELGIUM, Wis., June 4 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Mach One Corporation (Pink Sheets: MNCN), an innovative, global wellness solutions company, announces the development of a nasal immunoglobulins based product that can be hand carried and used as needed to form a mechanical barrier to block the attachment of the virus to the nasal membranes.
Peter Nash, Ph.D. and Chief Science Officer of Mach One Corporation said, "Having worked with the influenza virus group since 1974, the current strain of influenza Swine Flu (H1N1) appears to be similar to the swine influenza A (H1N1) triple reassortant virus, A/Wisconsin/87/2005 H1N1. This strain of virus is in the influenza virus group that is one of the most frequently occurring human illnesses and is responsible for substantial morbidity and economic loss. Viral inhibitors in the form of active immunoglobulins are effective anti-viral agents in vitro and in vivo. The primary site of attachment for these viruses appears to be in the nasal membrane. They spread from the nasal region into the pharyngeal region and can lead to lower respiratory infection leading to pneumonia and possible death. The proposed new product line could be engineered to be carried in one's pocket and used in the nasal passage. There is no need to be exposed to the risk of a needle. As needed, this type of product would allow for delivery to the direct area of the nasal membrane and block initial attachment in the nasal membrane. This gives a mechanical barrier to protect the person until their own immune system can build-up protection. This should slow the frequency of the virus in the environment."
Dr. Nash continued, "When blockage of the attachment of the virus is the objective, the immunoglobulin package is supplied to humans prior to exposure or immediately after an outbreak. The substantial pre
