American Biotech Labs Obtains FDA Approval for New Wound Care Gel Product
(Nanowerk News) American Biotech Labs, LLC (ABL), developer of a new class of products based on the company's patented nano-catalytic SilverSol Technology®, today announced that the company has been granted formal approval by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to market its ASAP Wound Dressing Gel throughout the United States.
The FDA approval letter confirms that ABL may market ASAP Wound Dressing Gel "for the topical management of minor cuts, lacerations, abrasions, 1st and 2nd degree burns, and skin irritations." The product utilizes ABL's innovative SilverSol Technology, which has garnered multiple patents in the U.S. and several countries throughout the world, including a broad-use patent that provides the company with exclusive rights to use its silver-based products to combat many of the world's most destructive pathogens, including malaria, tuberculosis, MRSA and HIV.
"We are delighted with the FDA's decision to grant approval for ABL to broadly market our ASAP Wound Dressing Gel," said Dr. William Moeller, a managing director of American Biotech Labs. "We feel this is a singularly effective wound care product, and it is a tremendous validation for us that ABL products have now received approval from the FDA as well as from the EPA."
ABL has performed extensive anti-microbial studies against bacteria, yeast, fungus and other pathogens. Information about these studies is available at research section of the ABL Website.
