mPale™ – A Powerful Piece of a MRSA Defense Program
Fountain Inn, SC – October 29, 2007 – mPact™ Environmental
Solutions, provider of the premier antimicrobial mPale to the buildings
and facilities market, is ready to help you take a proactive stance
against microbial contamination in your facility.
It seems like good timing as the United States is faced with a looming
epidemic of infections caused by a potentially deadly bacteria known
as Methicillin-Resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA). A recent study
published by JAMA (Journal of the American Medical Association), has
found that infections caused by MRSA appears to be more prevalent
than previously believed and is being found more often outside of
health care settings, such as in schools, locker rooms and in high
contact sports. "We estimate that 94,360 invasive MRSA infections
occurred in the United States in 2005; these infections were associated
with death in 18,650 cases," says the JAMA article. Recent press
events include news of sports figures, high school athletes and middle
school students contracting infections from the bacteria.
The transmission of these and many other bacteria is commonly associated
with direct contact with an infected person. However, the spread may
also occur through indirect contact by touching articles contaminated
by an infected person. These articles include furniture, carpet, doorknobs,
and most any other textiles or hard surfaces.
Using an overall holistic approach to microbial control in your facility
is the key to keeping the surfaces that you come into contact every
day protected. Good hygiene practices are obviously one important
element in a MRSA defense program. Antimicrobial agents, another powerful
piece of the program, must not only exhibit activity against a broad
spectrum of bacteria and be easily applied, most importantly, must
not leach off of the surface or be ingested by the organism, promoting
mPale with ÆGIS Microbe Shield® fits all of these parameters.
In addition to its durable non-leaching attribute, this technology
has been used in the marketplace for over 30 years without discovery of
adaptive organisms. It has successfully protected schools, medical
facilities, office buildings, professional and collegiate sports arenas
and training facilities from microbial growth on their surfaces.
