CLINICAL STUDY: Privacy Curtains
Field test for verifying the anti-microbial efficacy of privacy curtains with See It SAFE fabrics containing X-STATIC

"MRSA contamination was found in 63% fewer silver-impregnated curtains than in control curtains."

Dr. Tim Boswell, QMC Hospital, November 2008


CLINICAL STUDY: Linens & Patient Pajamas
Clinical trial on the use of X-STATIC fabrics to control MRSA

"66.7% of patients in the silver fabric group eradicated MRSA while 0% eradicated MRSA in the control group... The use of See it SAFE with X-STATIC fabric is superior to current eradication protocols against heavily contaminated patients"

Dr. P. Wilson, Lister Hospital, 2009


CLINICAL STUDY: Nurses' Uniforms
Field test to verify the anti-microbial efficacy of tunics used in hospitals with See It SAFE fabrics containing X-STATIC after 100 industrial launderings

"The total germination number on the anti-bacterial "See it SAFE with X-STATIC" textiles was reduced by 72.2%. The total number of all nosocomial infection pathogens was reduced by an average of 93.6% within an hour."

Klaus-Dieter Zastrow, M.D., Physician in Environmental Medicine, July 2009


CLINICAL EFFICACY: Woundcare
Reducing bacterial bioburden in infected wounds with vacuum-assisted clousre and a new silver dressing— A Pilot Study

"By incorporating the new silver foam dressing into practice, the authors have been able to reduce bacterial bioburden in chronic and acute wounds, while allowing the wounds to progress to healing with a healthy granulating wound bed. "

CLINICAL EFFICACY: Woundcare
The use of silver-impregnated packing strips in the treatment of osteomyelitis

"The case reported here employs the use of an interactive silver packing strip that facilitated healing because of its antimicrobial activity for which the authors believe further evaluation is justified."

CLINICAL EFFICACY: Woundcare
Impregnated silver tubular component in multilayer compression dressing clinical evaluation

"Diffuse erythema of the lower extremity that is associated with lower extremity peripheral edema and superficial ulceration is problematic in that multiple factors may be contributing to the clinical condition. The use of a silver impregnated tubular dressing proved beneficial in treating this condition."

Moore et al, Mercy Wound Care Center, 2006


CLINICAL EFFICACY: Woundcare
The use of clothing containing silver fibers in the treatment of patients with Epidermolysis Bullosa

"The incorporation of silver fibers into clothing may aid in the management of patients with chronic skin diseases such as Epidermolysis bullosa."

Moore et al, Penn North Centers for the Advanced Wound Care, 2006


CLINICAL EFFICACY: Woundcare
Therapeutic benefits of silver-thread compression stockings: A Case Study

"After wearing the Juzo® silver compression garment made with X-STATIC the silver fiber for an additional seven weeks, removing the garment nightly, this patient had no recurrence in ulcers, skin tears, lymphedema, scaling or weeping in the legs."
