PRO-Techs Antimicrobial Agent and Community-Acquired Infections

Community-acquired infections (CAl) are a persistent health care challenge and the trend continues upward in children and adults. The major contributing factor for CAl is contamination of “high touch” surfaces by antibiotic resistant microorganisms in the home. Whereas antibiotics were the “wonder drugs” of the 20th century, antibiotic resistant microbes are now enemy number one.

Hospital-acquired infections (HAl) are a major healthcare challenge and the trend continues upward despite implementation of rigorous hand-washing protocols, application of antimicrobial disinfectants to acute care hospital surfaces, and judicious decrease in antibiotic usage. Direct hand-to-surface contact is the most important contributing factor for HAl; too many hospital staff and visitors touch too many hospital surfaces and then touch and contaminate susceptible patients.

Microorganisms, including all bacteria and all fungal organisms, ie, mold and mildew, cause textile fiber deterioration, unsightly staining, color changes and unpleasant odor as well as the risk of environmental cross-contamination and infection. Microorganisms require a warm and moist environment to survive and replicate on nonwoven textile fibers. Body sweat provides moisture as well as protein and lipids (fat) from sweat glands as a source of nutrition. Colonization of microorganisms leads to unpleasant odors (“locker room stink”), visible stains, color change and fabric biodegradation with decreased longevity of the useful lifespan of the garment.
