What kills C-diff spores?

Posted by Barry Greenberg on Mon, Mar 17, 2014 @ 14:03 PM

C. diff Infections Reach All-time High

The U.S. Center for Disease Control & Prevention (CDC) reports that Clostridium difficile (C. diff) infections have reached an all-time high. In fact, C. diff is linked to roughly 14,000 deaths between 2006 and 2007, up from the 3,000 deaths between 1999 & 2000.

Clostridium difficile (klos-TRID-e-uhm dif-uh-SEEL), often called C. difficile or C. diff, a species of Gram-positive bacterium that can cause symptoms ranging from diarrhea to life-threatening inflammation of the colon. Illness from C. difficile most commonly affects older adults in hospitals or in long term care facilities and typically occurs after use of antibiotic medications. C. diff other intestinal disease often occur when competing bacteria in the gut flora, have been wiped out by antibiotics.

In recent years, C. difficile infections have become more frequent, more severe and more difficult to treat. Each year, tens of thousands of people in the United States get sick from C. difficile, including some otherwise healthy people who aren't hospitalized or taking antibiotics.

Patients in medical facilities are at the most risk for infection. According to the CDC, 25% of C diff infections first appear in hospitalized patients, while 75% occur either in nursing home residents or in people recently treated in doctor’s offices or clinics.

Mild illness caused by C. difficile may get better if you stop taking antibiotics. Severe symptoms require treatment with a different antibiotic.

Hantavirus Outbreak - What You Must Know

Posted by Barry Greenberg on Sun, Oct 20, 2013 @ 16:10 PM

 

Hantavirus (HCPS) is called hantavirus pulmonary syndrome, and it's spread by infected rodents, especially the common deer mouse. It was first discovered in the United States in 1993 near the Four Corners region – where Utah, Colorado, New Mexico and Arizona meet. At the time, no one knew what caused the disease, in which the lungs fill with fluid, essentially drowning its victims.

Humans can contract the often fatal disease by inhaling airborne particles of dried feces or urine from an infected rodent. Gross? Yes, but exposure isn't uncommon when you go camping or if you sleep in a building that has been empty for awhile and is near nature. About one in seven deer mice – in Orange County, California and elsewhere – carries hantavirus.

The only way to catch the disease is through contact with an infected animal, almost always deer mice. Rodents like gardens and, when possible, high elevations. But they can also be found in desert areas. The virus is in the saliva, feces and urine of infected mice and is spread to humans who inhale airborne dust and aerosol particles.

Early symptoms include "fatigue, fever and muscle aches, especially in the large muscle groups – thighs, hips, back and sometimes shoulders," according to the CDC.

"There may also be headaches, dizziness, chills and abdominal problems, such as nausea, vomiting, diarrhea and abdominal pain," according to the agency.

In as little as four to 10 days, the symptoms can become more severe.

Patients can suffer shortness of breath and coughing as the lungs fill with fluid. The CDC website quotes one survivor as saying that it felt as if he had a "tight band around my chest and a pillow over my face."

The outbreak at Yosemite National Park in 2012, brought the issue to national attention. - There have since been cases reported in Orange County, California. - The deadly virus has now entered private homes, with 51 cases reported in California.

This problem will only intensify as rodents enter homes to seek shelter from cold weather and in search for food.

Infection can occur when humans come in contact with infected droppings or saliva. Areas of most concern are cupboards, counter tops, the garage, storage areas and attics. The most common form of transmission is breathing contaminated air or dust. (The flow from air conditioning can also cause the virus to become airborne)

If you see signs of rodent droppings it would be best to contact an exterminator.

Do not attemp to sweep up the droppings, as the stirring up of infected materials will become airborne. If you see signs of rodent activity, spray the area with a solution of "RX-44 ACE" or "RX-75" (Hospital Grade Disinfectants, with specific Hantavirus kill claims). Wear a dust mask and other protective equipment, including gloves and goggles. After 10 minutes of contact time, sprinkel specific absorbent onto the treated solution and then remove carefully with broom and dust pan.

BioProtect Offers Anti Microbial Protection to Schools & Classrooms

Posted by Barry Greenberg on Sat, Sep 15, 2012 @ 20:09 PM

The reputation of schools and classrooms are easily tarnished, because of the spread of bacteria, viruses and infection. As students touch tables, chairs, door knobs and countless other surfaces, they are increasing the chances of contacting & spreading infection. A classroom is one location where anti- microbial protection would be extremely beneficial. Applying a bio static product to touch points in and around a classroom, can greatly decrease unwanted microbes, while helping to keep students healthy and free of illness.
Since 80% of infection is spread through areas that constantly receive human contact, it is no surprise that classrooms are tainted with many germs, viruses and bacteria. Children deserve a clean and infection-free environment which is why anti microbial protection would be the best solution to eradicate the spread of health-threatening microbes. Many school systems apply standard cleaning products when wiping down desks and door knobs. However, what they are not aware of is that these products do not offer a bio static solution. Instead of microscopic infections dying from the cleaning product applied, these microbes simply adapt and grow defenses against the compounds. In return, they grow into superbugs and multiply. The risk of microbial mutation increases, with the use of typical sanitation products. This does not even take into consideration the complications associated with improper cleaning procedures that lead to cross-contamination.
Microbes multiply in areas where there is moisture and high temperature. For example, an area that is wiped down with a standard chemical becomes moisturized. If the room is warm, this scenario becomes the perfect breeding ground for bacteria. Instead of offering anti microbial protection, the residue of a regular cleaning product actually allows microbes to grow and spread. If some of the bacteria are killed, the dead microscopic cells of these germs end up becoming food for superbugs. This pattern then becomes a cycle with no real end to contagion.
In a classroom setting, superbugs are unacceptable when it comes to keeping children healthy. While trying to keep bacteria and germs from spreading from student to student, these conventional cleaning products are actually doing the opposite. The precise solution is “BioProtect”, a bio static one-step application that mechanically kills microbes. As an EPA registered product, BioProtect offers the anti microbial protection necessary in classrooms.

                                 invisible microbiostatic coating
Think of BioProtect as microscopic spikes. Whenever microbes comes in contact with the BioProtect spikes, the piercing of the spikes effectively impales the cell wall. This bio static product mechanically kills the cells, ending the possibility of the microbes turning into superbugs and multiplying. In locations where the spread of infection is fast and easy—such as in a classroom—applying BioProtect will prove to be advantageous. The invisible microbiostatic coating will inhibit the growth of fungi, odor causing bacteria, mold & mildew and much more… Anti microbial protection is the answer to the disruption of infection and working to shield classrooms from disease.
