Antimicrobial products exert effects on multi-resistant bacteria, minimizing nosocomial infections and helping to reduce follow-up costs and save human life.
In the clinical setting, an increasing number of patients are falling ill with nosocomial infections caused by bacteria and other microorganisms that are resistant to antibiotics. These organisms colonize the surface of medical devices and proliferate uncontrollably. Once they enter the body, they are able to cause life-threatening infections. The consequences of nosocomial infections are dramatic: patient treatment times are prolonged and the risk of mortality is increased.
