SurgihoneyRO™ Featured at Wound Care Conference
26th January 2016
SURGIHONEY NEW WEAPON TO FIGHT SUPERBUGS
Surgihoney will feature at an international conference on wound healing as a new weapon to fight antimicrobial resistance.
Professor Jonathan Cooke, Imperial College London and Manchester University, is presenting at the EuroSciCon event on January 27, 2016. The symposium, in London’s O2 building, is for scientists and clinicians to discuss recent advances in research and therapies relating to wound healing and infection.
Having researched Surgihoney and its Reactive Oxygen (RO) technology platform, Professor Cooke will present pre-clinical and clinical findings in a presentation entitled, ‘From The Laboratory to the Labour Ward.’
Professor Cooke said: “Surgihoney RO is a highly effective antimicrobial wound dressing that is highly active against existing, infected acute and chronic wounds, reduces wound infection rates after elective surgery and potentially offers a significant improvement for patients with chronic rhinosinusitis.
“It is effective against bacteria, fungi and viruses and is a major step forward in the fight against antibiotic resistant bacteria or superbugs.”
Surgihoney, a bioengineered honey, has an EU CE mark and is approved for clinical use for the treatment of wounds and burns. It destroys a broad range of bacteria, including multi-drug resistant strains, such as MRSA, E.coli and Pseudomonas aeruginosa.
Professor Cooke has spent over 30 years in the NHS as a senior clinician. He is visiting Professor, Division of Infectious Diseases, Department of Medicine, Imperial College London and Honorary Professor, Faculty of Medical and Human Sciences, University of Manchester.
He has a specialist interest in antimicrobial resistance and is a former member of the UK Department of HealthAdvisory Committee on Antimicrobial Resistance and Healthcare Associated Infection and Chair of the Antimicrobial Stewardship Committee.
