WESTMONT, Ill., Jan. 14, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- PKB Animal Health, makers of ZYMOX enzymatic dermatology products, announced new research confirming the product Advanced Formula ZYMOX Otic PLUS is effective in destroying the biofilm of the resistant microbes: Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Staphylococcus aureus, Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) and Candida albicans. The published results are featured in the 2012 issue of The International Journal of Applied Research in Veterinary Medicine. Vol 10, No. 4.
Biofilm is a slimy, protective matrix produced by microorganisms which is difficult to remove and is suspected to be a primary culprit in antibiotic resistance and the reason so many pets are plagued with persistent or recurring otitis externa.
Advanced Formula ZYMOX Otic PLUS combines the proven antimicrobial properties of the company's patented three-component enzyme system, PLUS the power of four additional enzymes formulated to dissolve stubborn biofilm. Thus offering a safe, antibiotic-free option for infections due to bacteria or fungi.
Advanced Formula ZYMOX Otic PLUS with 1.0% Hydrocortisone is available exclusively through veterinary clinics.
