Illuminating the path towards empiric safe and rapid treatment for all corneal infections - Photon Therapeutics UVC device
With emerging antibiotic resistance, polymicrobial infections, incorrect antibiotic, and delay to treatment, many corneal infections progress to permanent scarring and visual compromise or even loss of the eye. At the patented UVC wavelength specific for microbial DNA, the Photon device has the ability and safety margin to inactivate and kill all microbial pathogens – with the same efficacy across the board irrespective of microbial antibiotic resistance profile. With promising preclinical work supporting both safety and efficacy, the Photon Therapeutics device has the potential to provide rapid, easy, empiric treatment for all corneal infections, in a matter of seconds.
- UVC light can be used safely to treat corneal infections – host cells have a much higher threshold for UVC mediated DNA damage
- There is no microbial resistance to UVC light
- UVC light ,in a few seconds, will inactivate all bacteria, fungi...
