INFECTION PREVENTION


Prebona offers the health sector a toolbox of possibilities to help reduce healthcare associated infections (HAI) in a safe and responsible way.

Prebona offers antimicrobial coatings that can be applied to high-touch areas, vents and many other surfaces. They can also be applied onto textiles, masks, gloves and carpeting. Even paint manufacturers are applying them to their wall paint to inhibit the growth of pathogens in facilities. In hospitals and medical facilities, these coatings can also be applied to medical devices.

Prebona offers a disinfectant that eliminates 99.99% of bacteria, virus and fungus and gives skin an extended protection against pathogens – without alcohol.

Alcohol-based hand sanitizers have problems; mainly, they are not effective against viruses, cause skin irritation, and do not provide extended protection from pathogens. Furthermore, long term alcohol sanitizers use can cause dry, cracked hands and even break the skin, which is the first barrier against infection.

Prebona Disinfect overcomes all these problems. It´ s effective against bacteria and viruses (including Norovirus and MRSA). It´ s alcohol free and skin friendly even in frequent use.

WOUND MANAGEMENT

Silver dressings are commonly used in the treatment of burns and chronic wounds. The active agent, silver ions, is an effective broad-spectrum antimicrobial agent whilst remaining non-toxic to human tissue. 

Prebona´ s compound for wound dressings uses active substances such as silver hundreds of times more effective compared to solid substances. The surface of a carrier particle is modified to adsorb atoms with specific properties such as silver. Silica particles with adsorbed silver atoms will kill bacteria as effectively as solid silver particles but with a fraction of silver content/concentration. This is because all the atoms interacting with the pathogen are on the surface of the particle. A solid silver particle on the other hand has the vast majority of its atoms inactive as they are below the surface, inside the particle. 

PHARMACEUTICAL DEVELOPMENT

Substances based on Prebona CompoTech are effective against a broad range of viruses and bacteria. We work together with experts at leading clinical universities to explore these opportunities with focus on “AgSol – Nanotechnology Against Antibiotics Resistant Bacteria” There is a growing need to enhance our antibacterial arsenal given the rising incidence of antibiotic resistance and a declining pipeline of clinically useful antibiotics. It is estimated that in year 2050, about 10 million people will die from antibiotic-resistant bacteria if no new antibiotics are discovered. This has motivated Prebona to develop AgSol, an antibiotic drug booster that boosts existing antibiotics so that only 5-10% of clinical dose is necessary for a relevant effect, even for the combat of antibiotic resistant bacteria. 

Prebona AgSol represents a truly new revolution in treatment of infections caused by antibiotic-resistant bacteria, and it is a solution that can be implemented quickly. With AgSol, existing antibiotics are boosted up to 20 times and made efficient towards even resistant bacteria. Furthermore, the possibility to design AgSol at the atomic level uniquely enables the precise tailoring of therapeutic effect, and keeps even low doses of antibiotics within the therapeutic window.
