APT™ Formulation Combats Multi-Drug Resistant Candida auris: An Emerging Global Healthcare Threat

The Most Effective Treatment to Stop the multi-drug resistant Candida auris spread within hospitals and healthcare facilities, globally

Studies suggest APT™ formulations may provide a safe/easy method to decolonize the skin healthcare workers and patients, thus interrupting skin colonization by the dangerous pathogen, Candida auris.”

— Dr. Mahmoud Ghannoum

ROCKWALL, TX, UNITED STATES, March 2, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Candida auris is a multi-drug resistant fungus which can be fatal. There is up to a 55% mortality rate if C. auris enters a patients’ bloodstream. Recent studies conducted at Case Western Reserve University of highly resistant strains of C. auris provided by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) have demonstrated that APT™ based Antifungal formulations are highly effective in killing this deadly fungus on skin surfaces. The APT™ formulation is the only known effective method that has the potential to remove C. auris from the skin of patients and healthcare workers.

Advanced Penetration Technology, LLC, (APT) a Texas- and Indiana-based company specializing in innovative healthcare solutions for physicians and patients utilizing our proprietary APT™ Formulations, has received compelling preclinical in vitro and in vivo data against susceptible and resistant Candida auris isolates, provided by the CDC. The data provide first time evidence that treatment with the APT™ based antifungal topical formulations can “decolonize Candida auris”. The results indicate that these formulations may have utility to control and prevent the ongoing global spread of this deadly multi-drug resistant fungus.

Candida auris can be fatal. There is up to a 55% mortality rate when C. auris enters the patients’ bloodstream. Current treatment protocols, typically involving chlorhexidine baths and intravenous antifungal drugs, have not proven effective in controlling this global spread of resistant C. auris fungus. These recent studies conducted at Case Western Reserve University, including highly resistant strains of C. auris provided by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), have demonstrated the APT™ based antifungal formulations are highly effective in killing the most resistant strains of this deadly fungus on skin surfaces. The APT™ based antifungal topical formulations are the only known and effective method to remove C. auris from the skin of patients and healthcare workers. Given these study results, it is believed that this topical “decolonization” application will become the standard of care to stop and control this multi-drug resistant fungal infection across global healthcare systems.

The Company is working with world renowned specialists and fungal disease experts, most notably, Dr. Mahmoud Ghannoum, Case Western Reserve University, Cleveland, Ohio. The company is in ongoing discussions with the CDC concerning the immediate impact of the APT™ antifungal formulations will have in controlling the emerging global healthcare threat. A peer reviewed manuscript has been published documenting the effective decolonization application of the APT™ antifungal formulations: https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/33558297/

Dr. Mahmoud Ghannoum said, “Using a C. Auris decolonization model we were able to demonstrate that the treatment with the APT™ formulations were effective in decolonizing the skin of this multi-drug resistant yeast. The findings suggest that these topical formulations may provide a safe and easy method to decolonize the skin of both healthcare workers and patients, thereby interrupting skin colonization by the dangerous pathogen, Candida auris”.

“The patent pending, proprietary APT™ formulation continues to demonstrate dramatic improvements in the efficacy of existing topical medications. In this case, the APT™ formulation combined with either a 1% Clotrimazole (API) or a 1 % Terbinafine (API) demonstrates to be the most effective topical formulation to remove C. auris from the skin of patients and healthcare workers. The APT™ formulation’s unique dual-actions of biophysical and biochemical destruction of Candida auris and other fungal pathogens will change the trajectory of therapeutic discussions, globally,” states Dr. Brian J. Huber, CEO/President of PFTH, LLC the parent company of APT, LLC.

Current prevention protocols focus on cleansing the patient with a Chlorhexidine bath/solution, which does not effectively manage the C. auris organism and the person to person spread. Environmental decontamination is a dramatic step. Entire hospital rooms are dismantled and cleaned to attempt to remove the C. auris organism. Once the C. auris fungus accesses the patients’ blood stream (via catheters, IV lines, ports, airways) there is a 55 % chance these patients will die within 30-90 days.

According to infectious disease specialists and the CDC experts, the key point of focus is (decolonizing) removing the C. auris fungus from the skin of patients and healthcare workers. Only by removing/mitigating the person to person spread and subsequently, the environmental contamination process, will the spread of this pathogen be stopped. The APT™ based antifungal formulations used for skin decolonization protocols are a true prevention strategy for global control of C. auris.

Online university in Arlington Virginia donates $50,000 to help small businesses

As a global online university, UMT is happy to focus attention on helping its Arlington neighbors cope with COVID-19.”

— Dr. J. Davidson Frame, UMT Academic Dean

ARLINGTON, VA, UNITED STATES, March 2, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — The University of Management and Technology (UMT) is headquartered in Arlington, VA, just across the Potomac River from Washington, DC. With the onset of COVID-19, Arlington’s small businesses faced the same disastrous challenges of small businesses throughout the United States. During lockdown, nearly all were shut down. Restaurants, shops, barbers and businesses had no customers. Even Arlington’s famed independent consultants were forced to work from home – if they were lucky enough to have clients. Small business came to a standstill.

During its 20+ years as an online university, UMT has been generous in providing aid to its students to deliver affordable education – over the past two decades, it has offered $33.5 million in scholarships to thousands of students in all 50 states, four territories, and overseas.

With the onset of COVID-19, which created deserted streets and empty stores and offices in Arlington, UMT felt obliged to focus on helping its neighbors in its own backyard. Through its Chen-Frame Foundation, it offered scholarships to underserved college undergrads through the Arlington Community Foundation. Seeing that local small businesses were particularly hard hit by the pandemic, in December 2020 it reached out to Arlington Economic Development (AED) with a donation of $50,000 to help the county support small businesses get by during these hard times. It then was approached by the Rosslyn Business Improvement District (BID) program to work together to strengthen Arlington’s support of small businesses.

UMT has long been proud of its global orientation, with students in all USA states and more than eighty countries. Now it is equally proud to work with its neighbors in its own backyard.
