AMProtection will license a broadly-active antimicrobial coating to urinary catheter manufacturers that will combat antibiotic resistance and reduce gold standard antibiotic use to fight infection. Per 10,000 coated catheters sold, AMProtection reduces 80% of CAUTIs, 200 patient hospital days, and tens of millions of dollars in never event expenses.
