Molnlycke Drives 'Home' the Fight Against Staph and Other MRSA Infections

A key to prevention of a MRSA infection is keeping hands clean to reduce the risk of cross-contamination. However, many of the products used by consumers do not contain pharmaceutical-quality, antimicrobial agents with residual activity like chlorhexidine gluconate (CHG) found in cleansers such as Hibiclens(R), according to Twomey.

Residual activity works when the antimicrobial bonds with the skin to prevent recontamination. For hand cleansers, this means the antimicrobial continues to kill germs for a period of time after washing. Alcohol is a common hand antiseptic and is extremely effective for immediate kill. However, when alcohol dries, the germ-killing action stops. The next contaminated object touched will recontaminate the hand.

And, for those instances when regular hand washing is not an option, Molnlycke offers consumers convenient Hibistat(R) Germicidal Towelettes that kill MRSA on contact and provide up to six hours of ongoing protection.

Containing CHG, Hibistat has been proven to provide fast-acting, antimicrobial protection on contact. It kills a broad spectrum of harmful organisms, continuing to fight germs much longer than soap and water or isopropyl alcohol alone. Hibistat Towelettes work without water and contain a quick-drying formula with added emollients, making them safe for frequent daily use.

"Hibistat Towelettes are perfect for today's active and mobile society," Twomey said. "They serve as a portable defense that you can carry and use when a sink and water are not readily available. They're ideal for use away from home to help keep MRSA and other germs from making it to your doorstep in the first place."

Hibistat Towelettes and Hibiclens are available in the first aid sections at chain drug stores (available in Walgreens as of August 2007) and pharmacies located in discount retailers.
