The Competition

The benchmark treatment options are antibiotics and topical wound treatments based on anti-infective components (iodine, silver, PHMB). Each of these treatements have built-in risks, either for the patient, the environment or both. A peptide such as BioC, identical to the ones in the body’s own defence system is very likely to neither cause bacterial resistance nor have any negative side effects for the patient or the environment.
