Home > Press > NanoLogix Provides 6-hour MRSA Results at UTHSC - Houston. Welcomes New Science Advisory Board Members: Board members bring expertise in obstetrics, gynecology, infectious diseases, microbiology, and veterinary medicine

Abstract:
NanoLogix (OTC MARKETS: NNLX), a biotechnology innovator in the rapid detection and identification of live-cell microorganisms, announces preliminary results of MRSA (Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus) testing at the University of Texas Health Science Center - Houston. Dr. Jonathan Faro, M.D., Ph.D. has found NanoLogix technology is able to deliver results for MRSA in 6 hours, as opposed to conventional culture-based testing wait times of 24 to 48 hours. Dr. Faro is lead researcher in an ongoing Group B Streptococcus (GBS) clinical trial using NanoLogix test kits at UTHSC. Scientific papers detailing the first two phases of the GBS clinical trial are currently being submitted for publication in peer-reviewed journals.

An interview with Dr. Faro explaining his rapid live-cell results can be found at www.nanologix.com.

NanoLogix Announces New Science Advisory Board Members

NanoLogix is pleased to welcome four exceptionally talented individuals to its Science Advisory Board. New members include Dr. Megan Barnhizer, D.V.M.; Dr. Sebastian Faro, M.D., Ph.D.; and Dr. Allan Katz, M.D. and Dr. Gwen R. Acker Wood, Ph.D., J.D. They join existing Science Board members Ahmer Kodvawalla, M.S., M.B.A.; Hilda Diaz, M.S.; and Dr. Clifford Watts, M.D.

"We are very pleased to welcome these new members to the Science Advisory Board," said Bret Barnhizer, NanoLogix CEO. "The new members add depth and valuable expertise to our SAB as the UTHSC - Houston approaches the conclusion of our GBS clinical trial and we begin the application process for FDA approval."

Dr. Allan Katz, M.D., professor and Vice-Chairman of Obstetrics and Gynecology at the University of Texas Medical School in Houston, and chief of Gynecology at Hermann Memorial Hospital in Houston stated, "We have relied far too long on traditional culture based technology, and this practice has undoubtedly contributed towards the development of microbial resistance. The technology offered by NanoLogix is exciting as it promises more rapid results in a time when it most matters to the patient. It also holds vast potential as the technology extends beyond GBS and MRSA and tests can be performed by almost anyone, in any corner of the world."

Dr. Sebastian Faro, M.D., Chief of Obstetrics and Gynecology at LBJ Hospital in Houston, Texas, said, "This is an extremely exciting time to be working on the development of diagnostic tests to identify pathogenic bacteria in a rapid manner. This technology from NanoLogix will revolutionize the process of identifying disease causing bacteria and facilitate a more direct approach in choosing appropriate antibiotic therapy."
