Steven Goodman, Ph.D., a member of the Scientific Board for ProclaRx and Associate Professor of Pediatrics at the Ohio State College of Medicine, and Principal Investigator at the Research Institute of Nationwide Children's Hospital, spoke about a new technology developed by ProclaRx, an Ohio-based biotechnology company, to break down and destroy biofilms.  Biofilms are a physical barrier which protect bacteria and prevent antibiotics and the body's immune system from eradicating chronic infections.

Infections with biofilms are associated with indications as those found in advanced wound care, chronic draining ear infections, and CVID sinusitis. They are highly resistant to antibiotics and have a significant ability to evade normal defenses against bacteria. Recurrent infections and antibiotic resistance is a major clinical and public health problem, with bacterial biofilms implicated in more than 80% of infections.

"Dr. Goodman's presentation clearly demonstrated the power of the anti-biofilm technology. This technology is unusual in that it can support both therapeutic as well as medical device products," stated Joseph D. Kittle, Jr., Ph.D., and CEO for ProclaRx.

Founded in 2014, ProclaRx has exclusive worldwide rights to develop and commercialize anti-infective technology from Nationwide Children's Hospital and the University of Southern California. With $5.5 million invested to-date, they are seeking additional financing and strategic partners. Medtech Showcase is part of the Biotech Showcase, one of the healthcare industry's largest annual healthcare investor conferences.
