"Currently impetigo is treated with antibiotic ointments, to which bacteria develop resistance in the same way as to oral antibiotics.

  • Post-streptococcal glomerulonephritis, which is a kidney inflammation that may lead to chronic kidney failure.
  • Cellulitis, which is a potentially serious infection that affects the tissues underlying the skin and eventually may spread to the lymph nodes and into the bloodstream.

About Aganocide(R) Compounds

The Aganocide(R) compounds are novel, proprietary, synthetic N-chlorinated antimicrobial molecules specifically developed by NovaBay(R) to mimic the body's natural defense against infection. The Aganocide(R) compounds maintain the biological activities while improving the stability of naturally occurring N-chlorinated antimicrobial molecules.
