Ormendes SA - First Published Clinical Trial In COVID-19 Suggests Role of Live Biotherapeutic Candidate in Seriously Ill Patients

Share

Ormendes SA is proud to announce that one of its probiotic formulations has been used in a clinical study to supplement Covid-19 patients in addition to their standard care, the results of which have now been published in Frontiers in Medicine.

The fact that pneumonia and gastrointestinal symptoms are predominant clinical manifestations of COVID-19 disease can be explained by the fact that both organs express the ACE2 receptor, through which the SARS CoV-2 virus can enter cells. In the gut, where ACE2 receptors are abundantly present, coronavirus may multiply quickly. Hence the innovative idea of ​using a mix of bacterial strains (Sivomixx®800) with proven biochemical, antiviral and immunological activities to raise the defenses of people infected by the SARS CoV-2 virus.

70 Covid-19 patients with lung involvement, for whom non-invasive oxygen therapy treatment was requested, were recruited in a study at the Policlinico Umberto I, Sapienza University, Roma, Italy. Patients were divided into two groups: one of 42 patients and the other one of 28. Both groups received a treatment based on hydroxychloroquine, antibiotics, and/or tocilizumab, whereas only the 28 patients in the second group concomitantly received Sivomixx®800. Interestingly, nearly all patients treated with bacteriotherapy showed remission of diarrhea and improvement in fever, physical weakness and myalgia within few days. The patients receiving oral bacteriotherapy all survived the COVID-19 disease and none required invasive mechanical ventilation. Their estimated risk of developing respiratory failure was eight-fold lower compared to the group which was not supplemented with the formulation.

The study was published in Frontiers in Medicine (https://www.frontiersin.org/articles/10.3389/fmed.2020.00389/full) . The data from this independent study are preliminary and will need to be confirmed by a more extensive trial.

SivoMixx®800 is a food supplement containing different strains of lactic acid bacteria and bifidobacteria at a concentration of 800 billion CFU (Colony Forming Units) per sachet. It is not intended to treat, prevent, or cure any disease.

Study Comparing Two Noninvasive Indicators of Fluid Responsiveness on Mechanically Ventilated Patients Finds Masimo PVi ® Effective and Advantageous30.11.2020 08:00:00 CETPress release

Masimo (NASDAQ: MASI) announced today the findings of a study published in the Ain-Shams Journal of Anesthesiology in which Dr. Diaaeldin Aboelnile and colleagues at Ain-Shams University in Cairo, Egypt compared two noninvasive methods of assessing fluid responsiveness in mechanically ventilated patients, dIVC and Masimo PVi®. They found both methods to be “effective,” but determined that PVi was advantageous because of being “continuous, operator-independent, and more reliable than dIVC.”1 PVi, pleth variability index, is a measure of the dynamic changes in perfusion index that occur during the respiratory cycle.

Luxembourg to Start Real Life Testing of an International Standard for a Digital Circularity Fingerprint for Products27.11.2020 12:00:00 CETPress release

The Ministry of the Economy of Luxembourg just launched phase two of the development of an international standard. It provides information on the circularity of products to all stakeholders involved along their value chains. A first viable version of the standard is being tested in real life, allowing to identify the most suitable governance model, the audit scheme and reliable IT systems for its management. Luxembourg started the Circularity Dataset Initiative in 2018 to address the difficulty for industry and consumers to access reliable data on the circular properties of a product. A lot of circularity information is missing, as its generation and handling requires too many human and financial resources. Furthermore, trade secrets are hindering transparency and reporting standards are lacking, forcing manufacturers to send out different data sets in diverse formats to customers and product platforms. To tackle these challenges, the Luxembourg government is working with multinational
