An unpredictable tsunami is approaching!
According to World Health Organization, “Antimicrobial resistance (AMR) is the ability of a microorganism (like bacteria, viruses, and some parasites) to stop an antimicrobial (such as antibiotics, antivirals and antimalarials) from working against it” As a result, common life-saving treatments like caesareans will be potentially fatal, infections persist and may spread to others.
HOSPITAL ACQUIRED INFECTIONS (HAI)
Superbugs are attacking from within hospitals!
Hospital-acquired infections or HAI’s are classified as infections a patient may contract while being treated for an unrelated issue in hospital or healthcare facility. Patients who contract HAI’s are often immune-compromised making them more susceptible to opportunistic bacteria causing infection and major complications to treatment, often causing patients to succumb to their illness.
Inventing ways to escape from ESKAPE!!
We at Polyamyna Nanotech Inc. (PNI), endeavor to develop next-generation antimicrobial technologies to prevent infections caused by deadly pathogens, especially ESKAPE (Enterococcus faecium, Staphylococcus aureus, Klebsiella pneumoniae, Acinetobacter baumannii, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, and Enterobacter species) pathogens, eventually striving to address the global antimicrobial resistance (AMR) catastrophe.
Journey like this takes a strong team!
