Johnson & Johnson Press Release:

BIOPATCH™ Antimicrobial Dressing Proven To Reduce Catheter Related Bloodstream Infection By 60 Percent

FDA Recognizes Label Change Based on New Data
Somerville, NJ (December 3, 2001) – Johnson & Johnson Wound Management, a division of ETHICON, a Johnson & Johnson company, today announced that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) cleared new labeling for BIOPATCH™ Antimicrobial Dressing that recognizes its efficacy in reducing blood stream infections due to central venous or arterial catheter infection. A controlled, randomized study of 687 patients showed that BIOPATCH™ Antimicrobial Dressing reduced the incidence of catheter related blood stream infections (CR-BSI) by 60 percent (p=0.026) and reduced the incidence of local infection by 44 percent (p=0.0001).

In the U.S., approximately 80,000 catheter-related infections annually account for 2,400 to 20,000 deaths per year, at an additional cost of $3,000 to $28,000 per episode. "Improving vascular access device care always involves minimizing the risk of infections in patients with central venous catheters," said Sandy Schroederr, supervisor, Vascular Access Service, Sharp Memorial Hospital. "The conclusive findings of this study give us peace-of-mind. By using BIOPATCH™ Dressing, we are greatly improving site care and reducing the patients' risk of blood stream and site infections."

With the new labeling, BIOPATCH™ Antimicrobial Dressing is indicated for absorbing exudate and reducing local infections, CR-BSI and skin colonization of microorganisms commonly related to CR-BSI, in patients with central venous or arterial catheters. Available since 1993, it is the only percutaneous device dressing clinically proven to reduce nosocomial infection rates compared to standard of care.

The dressing is treated with chlorhexidine gluconate, a broad-spectrum antimicrobial and anti-fungal agent, that is released for up to seven days. When applied to a central venous catheter (CVC) site, the dressing helps reduce catheter tip colonization and bloodstream infection. In addition, the dressing can absorb up to eight times its own weight in fluid and provides a one-inch zone of inhibition from the insertion site.

The safety and effectiveness of BIOPATCH™ Antimicrobial Dressing has not been established in children under 16 years of age. The dressing should not be used on premature infants or on patients with a known sensitivity to chlorhexidine gluconate.

Johnson & Johnson Wound Management, a division of ETHICON, INC., a Johnson & Johnson company, continues Johnson & Johnson's 100-year commitment to skin and wound care today with inventive products for chronic and acute wound management, burn care and hemostasis.

Was given your name by my pharmacist, got on line and ordered what was needed. No problems
Sending supplies by the U S Postal Service is quite slow getting here. Might think of giving the option of using UPS for shipping.
