Coated catheters prevent CAUTIs

Nosocomial infections, better known as HAIs are hospital-acquired / healthcare-associated infections that patients acquire while receiving treatment for other conditions within healthcare facilities. HAIs are a significant threat to patient safety. Thousands of deaths occur due to HAIs in Europe and other countries annually. So far, attempts have failed to prevent these infections.

Catheter-associated urinary tract infections (CAUTIs) are among the most common HAIs worldwide, accounting for over one million cases in the United States and Europe annually. 70%-80% of HAIs are attributable to an indwelling urinary catheter.

CAUTIs increase

  • Morbidity
  • Mortality
  • Healthcare costs
  • Length of hospital stay

We, at CHAIN ANTIMICROBIALS Ltd, have developed antimicrobial peptides to coat urinary catheters to prevent CAUTIs. In-vitro tests have shown highly effective results against various bacteria with no toxicity, and our next approach is preclinical trials to launch our coated catheters to the market.

Efficacy and Safety Assured:

Peptide-coated catheters (PAC)

  • Prevent biofilm formation, thus preventing CAUTI
  • Thermo, salt, and pH stable
  • Zero toxicity in in-vitro assays
  • Nontoxic as tested by the standards of ISO 10993-5 (2009) & ISO 10993-12 (2012)

Prevent CAUTIs with our peptide-coated catheters!
