March 2016
SHARING OPTIONS:

COLUMBUS, Ohio—The 8th Annual Biotech Showcase in San Francisco included a presentation by Dr. Steven Goodman, a member of the scientific board for ProclaRx, associate professor of pediatrics at the Ohio State College of Medicine and principal investigator at the Research Institute of Nationwide Children’s Hospital, regarding a new technology from ProclaRx that can break down and destroy biofilms. These films are a physical barrier that protect bacteria and prevent antibiotics and the immune system from targeting chronic infections. Bacterial biofilms are implicated in more than 80 percent of infections, and infections with biofilms are highly antibiotic-resistant.
