DGAP-News: aap Implantate AG
/ Key word(s): Study
aap Implantate AG ("aap" or the "Company") announces that the human clinical study for its innovative antibacterial silver coating technology started yesterday. The University Hospital in Regensburg is the first trial center which was equipped with the study materials and trained to perform surgeries with the Company's silver coated implants.
aap thus achieves another major milestone on the way to the planned CE approval and is at the same time the first company in the world to test an antibacterial silver coating on anatomical plates and screws for fracture treatment as part of a study of this kind.
With its antibacterial silver coating technology, aap addresses one of the greatest and yet inadequately solved challenges in traumatology: the reduction of surgical site infections (SSI). Surgical site infections represent a major burden both for the patients concerned and for global healthcare systems. Antibiotic-resistant bacteria pose a particular threat. In its annual report on the state of research to overcome antibiotic resistance, the WHO recently found that some of the world's most dangerous bacteria have developed resistance to known drugs. Moreover, according to the WHO, almost all antibiotics currently in development work little better than existing drugs. aap's innovative antibacterial silver coating technology represents an alternative solution in the fight against bacterial infections that is not based on antibiotics and therefore offers enormous market potential. As a platform technology, the technology has a broad range of applications and can be used not only in traumatology but also in other areas of orthopedics as well as in cardiology, dentistry, or medical instruments.
In the future, aap will report regularly on the progress of the human clinical study for its innovative silver coating technology.
