ChloraDerm Launches Pediatric Offering


entrotech life sciences (ELS) announced the availability of FDA-Cleared ChloraDerm in a new 1.75"x 1.75" configuration, ideal for pediatric patient use.  ChloraDerm is the only transparent film dressing containing the Chlorhexidine Advantage, a safe, colophony-and acid-free, edge-to-edge chlorhexidine matrix with effectiveness against multi-drug-resistant organisms, including MRSA for at least seven days.

The ChloraDerm platform was recently launched by entrotech life sciences. To support the commercialization of the new line for the healthcare market, ELS hired market experts Jack Querio and Aime' Lenz to its Executive Team beginning in 2015.

"We have always felt that the pediatric setting deserves the best technologies available and should be integral to our commercial strategy," said ELS CEO Jim McGuire, "Both Jack and Aime have the deep expertise and knowledge to advance our mission to save lives and will play instrumental roles in finding new ways to deliver Infection Prevention solutions to healthcare providers around the globe."

Querio, National and Government Account Authority, has spent more than 32 years in the biotech, medical device, pharmaceutical and consumer products industries with companies such as Johnson & Johnson, Zimmer Holdings and Medline Industries. During his tenure at Johnson & Johnson, Jack led national account (GPO/IDN) and government (VA/DoD) teams with multi-billion dollar annual revenue responsibility. Jack has worked in Washington, DC with lobbyists, patient advocacy groups, congressional leaders and staff, and legal entities on various programs to advance public health and safety.

Jack Querio commented, "In my 30+ years in this industry I have never seen a product, for its indication, better than ChloraDerm™. Our antimicrobial technology platform sets in motion a future of innovation that can positively impact all patients, including children, for many years to come."

Lenz, Antimicrobial Commercialization Expert, has committed her career to minimizing the global problem of Healthcare-Acquired Infections (HAIs) through the commercial advancement of novel medical technologies and recently published "The Evolving Business of Healthcare: Key Issues in Healthcare Reform for Infection Prevention Professionals." She was a leader in the transformational commercial effort to shift clinical practice in the United States towards the use of chlorhexidine for patient preoperative skin preparation in pediatric and adult settings, which has significantly reduced infections related to catheters and surgical sites.

"To experience how quickly entrotech life sciences develops and manufactures innovations with huge technical and regulatory hurdles is a rarity in this industry," said Aime' Lenz "I joined ELS because of their talented team, leadership in solving problems, and their ingenuity and speed in delivering FDA-cleared chlorhexidine solutions to improve public health of pediatric and adult patients by preventing infections."

ELS is also supported by a prestigious Board of Directors including Former U.S. Surgeon General, Dr. Kenneth Moritsugu, and veteran Silicon Valley investor and consultant, Dr. Morton Grosser.
