SinoFresh(R) Passes First Key Test for Potential to Control 'Super-Bug'

MRSA

VENICE, Fla., Aug. 19 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- SinoFresh HealthCare, Inc., (OTC Bulletin Board: SFSH) announced preliminary results today from a successful in vivo pilot study indicating that its patented SinoFresh(R) nasal spray was shown to be useful in controlling the MRSA "super-bug" in the nasal passages. This study utilized a recognized scientific model intended to demonstrate SinoFresh(R) nasal spray's ability to kill MRSA hiding in the nasal passages. These favorable efficacy results follow an earlier, successful in vitro study that was conducted at the Public Health Research Institute under the direction of Dr. Barry Kreiswirth, director of the Tuberculosis Center and Hospital Infections Program.

The study showed that "SinoFresh(R) nasal spray used three times daily appeared to effectively eliminate MRSA in the noses of the test animals while leaving enough normal microbes to keep a normal population in the nasal passages," according to Dr. John Todhunter, consultant to SinoFresh, who oversaw the study conducted at Virion Systems in Rockville, MD.

MRSA (which stands for Methicillin Resistant Staphylococcus aureus) is a growing concern in the health care community. It incubates in the nasal passages and then gets on the skin where it can cause severe, virulent infections. The effect of MRSA can lead to disfigurement and sometimes death. MRSA is also highly antibiotic resistant, making MRSA infections difficult to treat. It is believed that approximately 2 - 3 million persons in the U.S. walk around carrying MRSA in their nasal passages at any time and elimination or severe reduction of nasal MRSA colonies is seen as a potentially important weapon in fighting the spread of MSRA. The antibiotic Mupirocin is currently used to reduce nasal MRSA loads.
