Dr. Cale Street, Vice President of Research, Profiled On CEO Clips

Ondine would like to congratulate Dr. Cale Street for being profiled on national TV via CEO Clips. In this video, Dr. Street touches upon the seriousness of antibiotic resistant superbugs and Ondine’s solution to this growing problem. MRSAidTM is a novel, non-antibiotic system designed to reduce the incidence of healthcare-associated infections (HAIs). In the US alone, more than 99,000 people die every year as a result of HAIs.

MRSAidTM is currently being used at Vancouver General Hospital on patients undergoing select surgeries in order to reduce their risk of developing post surgical site infections.  Since MRSAidTM does not generate bacterial resistance, this is a critical milestone in the fight against HAIs and antibiotic resistant superbugs.

MRSAid™ & VGH Infection Control Project Featured on Canadian National News!

Last Friday, we announced an innovative partnership with Vancouver General Hospital (VGH), one of Canada`s largest hospitals. Today, we are very excited to have this partnership featured on Global News.

MRSAidTM is a non-antibiotic therapy designed to eliminate bacteria in the noses of patients during high infection risk times. Pathogenic bacteria such as Staphylococcus aureus and MRSA can significantly increase the risk of a patient developing serious infections after surgery. As part of our partnership with VGH, MRSAidTM will be used on patients undergoing cardiac, spinal, breast reconstruction, thoracic, neurological, and orthopaedic surgeries. We are very excited to be working with the leaders in infection control at VGH. For more information on MRSAidTM, please visit www.mrsaid.com. Also, connect with us on TwitterFacebook, we`ll be happy to respond to any of your comments and questions.

World Health Day is celebrated on the 7th of April every year to mark the establishment of the World Health Organization (WHO). Each year, the WHO selects a key health issue and encourages people from around the world to hold events and promote actions that will improve health. It is very fitting for Ondine then that this year’s World Health Day theme is “Combating Drug Resistance.” We have spent the last 70 years using and misusing antibiotics to treat and prevent common infectious diseases. Today, we have entered an era where bacteria have developed the ability to become resistant to most antibiotics, rendering them almost useless. It is therefore imperative that non-antibiotic solutions to fight infections are developed in order to preserve the next generation of effective medicine. Read More
