MARKHAM, IN / ACCESS CABLE / July 21, 2022 / iFabric Corp. (“iFabric” or the “Company”) (TSX:IFA)(OTCQX:IFABF), today provides an update on its clinical trial of medical garments (i.e., “medical clothing”) treated with the antimicrobial ProTX2 and the Company’s REPELTX water. -Repellent technologies.
“I am pleased to report that phase one of our trial has now been completed,” said Hylton Karon, President and CEO of iFabric.
“Our trial was conducted at MemorialCare Medical Group – Irvine, in the United States,” added Mr. Karon.
“The trial consisted of scrubs delivered in three forms: one treated with our ProTX2 antimicrobial technology, one with a combination of ProTX2 and RepelTX (durable water repellent technology), and a third (control) group of untreated scrubs. The trial comprised 125 nurses contracted for 3 shifts per nurse, equating to a total of 375 regular staff shifts. At the beginning of each shift, nurses received new, unmarked scrubs from one of three groups, which were rubbed down twice, once before the start of the shift and a second time at the end of the shift. The primary endpoint of the assay is to compare bacterial loads in washes treated with our technologies compared to untreated washes. Reducing the pathogen load is key to improving the protection of the user and those they encounter during their working day. The spread of infection by surface contact is a major concern in the healthcare industry.
“The trial now moves into its second, laboratory-based phase, which involves testing for bacterial loads. Once all the laboratory tests are completed, the third step will be to analyze the data against a set of criteria established before the trial. The fourth and final step will be to provide our analyzes to a recognized peer-reviewed medical journal. revision and publication. Further updates will be provided as the trial progresses through the remaining phases,” concluded Hylton Karon.
