How Does BioProtect Protection Work?

The active ingredient in BioProtect polymerizes to all surfaces and is both colorless and odorless.

Think of BioProtect as a layer of electrically charged swords.  When a microorganism comes in contact with the treated surface, the quaternary amine sword punctures the cell membrane and the remnants are then electrocuted.

Since nothing is transferred to the now dead cell, the antimicrobial does not lose it’s strength and the sword is now ready for the next cell to contact it.  (NOTE: Normal cleaning of the treated surfaces is necessary in order for the BioProtect   antimicrobials to continue their effectiveness.  Dirt buildup,  paint, dead microbes, etc. will cover the treatment prohibiting it from killing microorganisms.)

Effects of Radon and UV Exposure on Skin Cancer Mortality in Switzerland

BACKGROUND:Skin cancer incidence in Switzerland is among the highest in the world. In addition to exposure to ultraviolet (UV) radiation, radon alpha particles attached to aerosols can adhere to the skin and potentially cause carcinogenic effects.OBJECTIVES:We investigated the effects of radon and UV exposure on skin cancer mortality.METHODS:Cox pr...

A Paradigm Shift in CLL Treatment Optimal sequencing of targeted therapies

The emergence of B-cell receptor (BCR) and B-cell lymphoma 2 (BCL-2) inhibitors has transformed the treatment of chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL). With each development and study, we move closer to chemotherapy-free treatments for this most common leukemia. Brian T. Hill, MD, PhD, an oncologist at Cleveland Clinic Cancer Center, is on the forefro...
