Exciting New Patent to Issue

7/18/2019: I learned today that another patent will be issued. The patented method addresses the treatment of infected total joint implants. Although the incidence is low at about 2% those affected face multiple subsequent surgeries. The annual cost of treatment is half a billion dollars in the USA alone.

I discovered a method to help solve this problem, perhaps without surgery. The method includes mobilizing the biofilm covered colonies of bacteria with ultrasound, followed by an accurate diagnosis. The treatment then can be with needle aspiration and installation of the antibiotic I discovered; protocatechuic acid. This metabolite of the dyes found in cherries and blueberries has proven biofilm destroying properties.

Hopefully this patented method will lead to fewer infections and less invasive treatment of those with a surgical infection.

I now need a orthopedic company to share my vision.
