Investorideas.com - Today's Biotech News: UV Flu Technologies (OTCBB: UVFT) Air Purification Medical Device, Selected for Second Profile in UK-Based "Public Service Review"
"The spread of airborne bacteria and infectious diseases in the United Kingdom, in some areas, is reaching epidemic levels," - Jack Lennon, President of UV Flu Technologies.
CENTERVILLE, MA – October 18, 2010 (InvestorIdeas.com Newswire, www.biotechindustrystocks.com) – Biotech Stock News- UV Flu Technologies, Inc. (OTCBB: UVFT) reports it has been selected as the only air purification medical device to be listed in the Infection Control Segment of the prestigious UK-based opinion and analysis industry publication "Public Service Review." In this, our second appearance for 2010, the Company offers an informative profile within the magazine as well as a full page back cover advertisement.
The Public Service Review features contributors that include UK and foreign ministers, senior civil servants, experts and academics discussing the latest initiatives and projects along with case studies and comments on best practices affecting public sector initiatives worldwide.
"The spread of airborne bacteria and infectious diseases in the United Kingdom, in some areas, is reaching epidemic levels," said Jack Lennon, President of UV Flu Technologies. "There is more than a 10% risk of becoming infected by HAI's, or hospital associated infections, in many of the medical facilities in the United Kingdom, making Infection Control a much more visible issue than it is in this country. Being selected for inclusion by the "Review" as the only laboratory tested device capable of killing these bacterial superbugs is a distinct honor."
Mr. Lennon continued to say, "There is a great deal of attention in the UK, and in the United States, on the spread of MRSA, a bacteria resistant to antibiotics and estimated to kill tens of thousands of people every year, in many instances affects people who have been in a medical facility. In fact, over the last 4 weeks an outbreak of Legionnaires Disease in South Wales garnered international attention as three deaths were reported, and a number of people were stricken. The world believed Legionnaires to no longer pose a threat, but experts believe it kills thousands of people yearly through improper diagnosis as pneumonia. The ViraTech UV- 400 cost effectively and efficiently kills these airborne bacterial strains, and it was this that led to our inclusion in this particular issue."
Further details regarding the Company's business, financial reports and agreements are filed as part of the Company's continuous public disclosure as a reporting issuer under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission's ("SEC") EDGAR database.
