Reducing Risk of Infection: BlueWillow Biologics to Launch NanoBio® Protect OTC Nasal Antiseptic Solution

BlueWillow Biologics®, a clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company, today announced the company will advance the manufacturing and commercialization of NanoBio® Protect, a nasal antiseptic solution that can be used to help reduce germs that could cause infections. NanoBio® Protect will be available for purchase over-the-counter by hospitals, businesses and consumers.  NanoBio® Protect is an alcohol-free, nasal antiseptic that has been shown to kill 99.99% of germs in lab tests. The product is applied by thoroughly swabbing the skin inside of each nostril and is recommended for use to help reduce germs on the skin that can cause infection. NanoBio® Protect is non-irritating, fragrance-free and leaves no residue after application. It should be used in conjunction with frequent handwashing, limited touching of the face, and social distancing to help minimize infection. “During this difficult time, doctors and nurses who are treating patients need every protective measure possible,” said Michael Corrado, MD, Fellow at the Infectious Disease Society of America and the former Vice President of Regulatory Affairs and Vice President of Clinical Research at Johnson & Johnson. “Even though BlueWillow’s nasal antiseptic hasn’t yet been clinically tested to confirm protection against COVID-19 infection, it has demonstrated both anti-bacterial and anti-viral activity in laboratory tests making it a potentially important additive measure to hand washing and barrier techniques for healthcare workers on the front lines.”
