C.difficile (C.diff.) Infections Continue to Grow in Health Care Facilities Worldwide

The burden of Clostridium difficile (C. diff) continues to grow in health care facilities throughout the United States and around the world.

Gaining a better understanding of sources and risk factors for C. diff can help reverse colonization and transmission or prevent it altogether, authors of a new paper suggest.

“This is a review/commentary article that provides a high-level overview of the literature dealing with C. diff colonization and the microbiome changes associated with C. diff colonization,” author Silvia Munoz-Price, MD, PhD, from the Medical College of Wisconsin in Milwaukee told our sister publication MD Magazine.

After reviewing the literature, authors of the study postulated that when it comes to the potential for C. diff colonization, exposure to and transmissions of the virus occurs outside of hospitals. In fact, it seemed like most of the patients became symptomatic during their hospital stay, rather than acquiring the virus while hospitalized.

For example, the investigators cited one study from Canada that had been conducted from 2006 to 2007 where more than 4000 patients were screened for C. diff colonization upon hospitalization, during their stay (on a weekly basis) and at discharge. They found that 4% of the patients were colonized upon hospitalization and 3% acquired C. diff during their stay in the hospital.

The authors also found evidence indicating that community-acquired C. diff appears to be on the rise. The authors discuss a decade-long study which took place in Minnesota where community-acquired C. diff infection rates rose from 2.8 to 14.9 per 100,000-person-years within the 10-year span. The patients in that study more likely to acquire C. diff were younger, female, and healthier than patients with hospitalization acquired C. diff. The reviewers also said that rates of community-acquired C. diff have also been rising in Finland, Australia, and England, according to published studies.

Most of the common risk factors for community-acquired C. diff infections still applied, the researchers found, including antibiotic exposure, household contact, and animals. A 2013 study showed that two-thirds of community-acquired C. difficile patients were exposed to antibiotics in the preceding 12 weeks of their infection, and about one-third had been exposed to proton pump inhibitors.

While studies examining transmissibility within households are difficult to come by, the study authors found one review from Quebec. The review consisted of 2222 cases of C. diff diagnosed between 1998 and 2009, and investigators found that 8 cases were designated to be transmitted by household contacts. However, the researchers noted, confirmation using strain typing was not performed in that study.

Looking at farm livestock, a 2013 Dutch study showed that individuals with daily contact with pigs showed rates of C. diff positivity of 25%; in those with weekly contact, it was 14%. In the same study, C. diff was found in the manure from all the farms in 10% to 80% of the samples per farm. The reviewers also said that C. diff has been found in the stool of farm chickens, calves, and retail ground meat. Dogs and cats are also known to culture positive for C. diff, and the researchers wrote that the bacteria can also be present in vegetables and water (tap water, swimming pools, as well as rivers, lakes, and seas). They hypothesized that the presence of C. diff in vegetables may come from the use of organic fertilizer.

“We envision that in the future we should be able to take advantage of our increasing knowledge about microbiome changes so that we will be able to: identify patients at risk for de novo C. difficile colonization during their hospitalization and manipulate our patients’ microbiome to prevent or reverse C. difficile colonization,” Dr. Munoz-Price said.

“Different from what we do now, the latter would be accomplished not by withholding or changing antibiotics but by correcting the deficient flora of a patient in an individualized fashion. This new approach would revolutionize the field of Infection Control and Antibiotic Stewardship,” she concluded.

Researchers Find Health Care Costs Associated With a Clostridium difficile Infection (CDI) and Recurrent CDI Shows a Significant Increase

 

“This study is consistent with previous literature that has demonstrated a significant and substantial increase in health care resource utilization for CDI over and above similar patients without CDI,” researcher Dongmu Zhang, PhD, of Merck’s Center for Observational and Real-World Evidence, and colleagues wrote. “It has also shown that having rCDI is associated with substantial health care resource use as compared to similar CDI patients who do not have a recurrence.”

To estimate costs and time of hospitalization associated with CDI and rCDI, the researchers conducted a retrospective observational study. They assessed patient records using databases of commercial and Medicare health care claims. Both databases included information on demographics, diagnoses and prescriptions, among other data.

The researchers matched patients without CDI to those with the infection in a 1:1 ratio to estimate costs and lengths of hospital stay due to primary CDI. They then matched patients with primary CDI 1:1 to those with rCDI in a similar comparison. Each patient was followed for 6 months.

The study included records for 55,504 patients diagnosed with CDI between

July 2010 and July 2014.

The mean patient age was 61.3 years,

62% of patients were women.

Nearly a quarter of patients — 24.8% — had rCDI.

The estimated cumulative hospital stays due to CDI and rCDI were 5.2 days and 1.95 days, respectively.

The estimated health care costs due to CDI and rCDI were $24,205 and $10,580, respectively.

Zhang and colleagues said the data show that clinicians must act to control CDI.

“The health care resource utilization and economic burden associated with primary and rCDI are quite substantial,” they wrote. “Better prevention and treatment of CDI, especially rCDI, are needed.” – by Joe Green

CutisPharma Announces FDA Approval Of FIRVANQ™ (vancomycin hydrochloride) for Oral Solution for Treatment of Clostridium difficile Associated Diarrhea (CDAD) and Staphylococcus aureus Colitis

CutisPharma Announces FDA Approval Of FIRVANQ™ For Treatment Of  Clostridium Difficile Associated Diarrhea (CDAD) And Staphylococcus Aureus Colitis

 

FDA-approved vancomycin oral liquid therapy expected to improve patient access and reduce pharmacist  burden by no longer having to compound liquid formulations

CutisPharma announced today, January 29, 2018,  that the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has approved FIRVANQ™ (vancomycin hydrochloride) for oral solution, for the treatment of Clostridium difficile associated diarrhea and enterocolitis caused by Staphylococcus aureus, including methicillin-resistant strains.

“We are pleased to announce the FDA approval of FIRVANQ,” said Neal I. Muni, MD, MSPH, Chief Executive Officer of CutisPharma. “FIRVANQ’s approval is an important step forward to providing patients the only FDA-approved vancomycin oral liquid treatment option for Clostridium difficile associated diarrhea, a life-threatening condition that affects over a half-million patients in the United States annually.”

Upon its launch, which is targeted to be April 2, 2018, FIRVANQ™ will replace CutisPharma’s FIRST®-Vancomycin Unit-of-Use Compounding Kit, which has been available to pharmacists that need a convenient, accurate, and compliant way to compound vancomycin oral liquid therapy. FIRVANQ™ will be commercially available in 25 mg/mL and 50 mg/mL strengths in convenient 150 mL and 300 mL sizes.  FIRVANQ™ is designed to be easy to use and has the potential to be a cost-effective alternative to existing vancomycin therapies.

“As a practicing infectious disease physician treating many patients with CDAD, having an FDA-approved vancomycin oral liquid formulation that is affordable and accessible to my patients is very beneficial,” said Stuart Johnson, MD, Loyola University Medical Center. “Patient access is currently limited by the fact that only a select few pharmacies perform compounding in the outpatient setting these days, given the many new regulations in place.  Availability of an FDA-approved vancomycin oral liquid treatment will effectively allow any pharmacy to stock this therapy, and hopefully encourage third-party payer reimbursement, significantly improving accessibility and convenience for patients.”

About CutisPharma

CutisPharma, Inc., based in Wilmington, Mass., is a privately held, specialty pharmaceutical company that has been the industry leader for 20 years in providing innovative solutions to pharmacists.  CutisPharma’s FIRST® Unit-of-Use Compounding Kits have benefited millions of patients who are unable to swallow conventional oral dosage forms such as tablets and capsules and whose needs are not served by commercially available therapies. The Company’s first FDA-approved Kit will allow significantly broader patient access, convenience to pharmacists and patients alike by reducing the need for compounding, and serve as a potential cost-saving option to existing treatments.  For more information, visit www.cutispharma.com

Zinplava has been launched by MSD in the UK

MSD has launched Zinplava in the UK, offering patients a novel therapeutic option for the prevention of Clostridium difficile recurrence.

Zinplava (bezlotoxumab) is not an antibacterial and is not indicated to actually treat the infection, but is a monoclonal antibody designed to neutralise C. difficile toxin B, which can damage the gut wall and cause inflammation, leading to diarrhoea.

It is the first and only EC licensed non-antibiotic option indicated to prevent recurrence of Clostridium difficile infection (CDI) in high-risk adults.

Around one-in-four patients experience a recurrence after the initial episode, and more than 40 percent of these have further recurrence, highlighting the need for new options able to break the infection cycle.

Pivotal Phase III clinical studies showed the rate of infection recurrence through week 12 to be significantly lower in patients given Zinplava (17.4 percent and 15.7 percent) or Zinplava and actoxumab (15.9 percent and 14.9 percent) than those taking a placebo (27.6 percent) and (25.7 percent), respectively.

“Notably, bezlotoxumab reduces the risk of the recurrence of CDI for at least 3 months, compared with standard of care antibiotic therapy. This is welcome addition to our limited options to reduce the considerable morbidity and mortality associated with CDI,” commented Mark Wilcox, Professor of Medical Microbiology at the University of Leeds.

“Antimicrobial resistance is a key national issue and we hope with bezlotoxumab to not only help achieve a reduction in the number of recurrent episodes of CDI but also a reduction in the amount of antibiotic prescriptions that would otherwise be needed to treat these recurrent episodes,” added Dr Mike England, MSD’s Interim Medical Director.

Zinplava is administered as a single, one-off, one-hour intravenous infusion alongside standard-of-care antibiotic therapy for the treatment of CDI.

 

C Diff Foundation and C diff Survivors Alliance Network Share a Winter 2017 Bulletin

Greetings from the main office of the C Diff Foundation and the C diff Survivors Alliance Network located in New Port Richey, Florida.  As we close 2017 we mark the 5th anniversary of the two organizations. We want to share with you a summary and reflection on this year’s events and campaigns moving our mission forward and message delivered worldwide. The mission and promoting C.diff. Awareness has been shared this year with  listeners in over 25 Counties during Season III on C. diff. Spores and More Global Broadcasting Network (www.cdiffradio.com),  5,000+ visitors during global events, 9,600+ residents and business owners throughout villages and communities by our dedicated volunteer patient advocates, to over 1,000 clinicians who received up-to-date data expanding their knowledge during workshops and local symposiums offered worldwide, 3,000+ incoming calls received through the Nationwide Hot-Line 1-844-FOR-CDIF with the thousands of e-mails received seeking assistance.

After each event, workshop, meeting, introduction we thank the individuals for sharing  in five years of opportunity to provide life-saving data educating and advocating for C. difficile infection prevention, treatments, environmental safety and support worldwide.  The mission of the C Diff Foundation is the momentum of charity that has proven effective and grown over the past five years.  A single act of charity grows into more and greater charity worldwide.  The work each member of the C Diff Foundation, with hundreds of Volunteer Patient Advocates, promote the Foundation’s mission which never stops with a single act.  Instead, it builds, it grows, and it expands into an exponential impact of good in the world helping to save lives.  We thank you for your continued support and encourage you to continue your journey, proposing three verbs important to the C Diff Foundation and the C diff Survivors Alliance Network in general.

The first of these verbs is “to promote” C.diff. Awareness. It is the first step that opens doors in educating individuals, clinicians, communities in learning more about this life-threatening infection which causes a great amount of pain and suffering around the globe.  It is essential and it is the compass in reaching shared goals.

The second verb is “to heighten awareness” across the nation to continue proclaiming November Clostridium difficile infection awareness month. The Governors proclaimed November C. difficile (C.diff) infection awareness month in 2017 and we encourage them “to welcome” this proclamation in 2018 with more than a yearly executive order of greeting or inviting their residents to take notice.  We look forward to working with delegates, with your support, to make this proclamation statement nationwide and welcome the importance of the time, education, programs, and agenda in place addressing this life-threatening infection.  The C Diff Foundation advocates and supports the individuals and families suffering during and after being treated for a C. diff. infection.

Finally, the third verb that the C Diff Foundation and C diff Survivors Alliance Network propose is “to go.”  Here we are all challenged to do something big or small — with what we are able to do.  With the unity of members with volunteers with patients, families, and clinicians we can make a difference with enthusiasm and simplicity to get up and go.  We can do for others  today what we could not do for ourselves during our time of illnesses, during the long periods of isolation, during the losses, and during the pain and suffering.

As members of the C Diff Foundation we know that our enthusiasm  for our mission is the desire to bring awareness and promote C. difficile infection prevention, treatments, environmental safety and support worldwide.  We witness changes by the data and information being delivered within villages,  through major cities and in small communities — it is only by taking this path that we gain satisfaction knowing that the news delivered with enthusiasm “to promote, to heighten awareness and to go” with the members and volunteers in the C Diff Foundation and C diff Survivors Alliance Network creates positive results.

We are truly grateful for your continued dedication, efforts and support and thank you again for making this year’s November anniversary such a special occasion through the growth and advances made worldwide.   Let’s carry the mission into the New Year, carving new paths to witness the decline of newly diagnosed cases of Clostridium difficile (C.diff., C. difficile) infections and saving lives worldwide.

“None of us can do this alone ~ All of us can do this together.”

MORE about TOMI™ Enviornmental Solutions, Inc.

Feb. 23, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — TOMI™ Environmental Solutions, Inc.  a global bacteria decontamination and infection prevention company, announced the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has amended TOMI’s registration for its patented Binary Ionization Technology (BIT™) to include its effectiveness in disinfecting Clostridium difficile spores (C. diff)+, Methicillin Resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA)**and influenza (H1N1)**.

 TOMI™ Expands Opportunity in US Hospital and Healthcare Markets With Amended EPA Registration

SteraMist™ BIT™ Efficacy data

 

TOMIEnvironmental Solutions, Inc. is a leading provider of infection prevention and decontamination products and services, focused primarily on life sciences including healthcare, bio-safety, pharmaceutical, clean-room and research. Our mission is to help our customers create a healthier world through TOMI’s product line. TOMI’s motto is “Innovating for a Safer World” for healthcare and life.

As a global decontamination and infectious disease control company, TOMI provides environmental solutions for indoor and outdoor surface decontamination through the sale of equipment, services and licensing of our SteraMist™ Binary Ionization Technology® (BIT™) which is a EPA registered hydrogen peroxide based mist and fog.

During August 2010, TOMI entered into negotiations to purchase the assets of a U.S. Defense company’s division that owned and operated BIT. The technology was a division of L-3 Applied Technologies, Inc. (L-3). In April 2013, we completed the acquisition of certain assets from L-3 for $3,510,000 and TOMI began to develop, engineer and complete regulatory testing for the EPA registrations of BIT and BIT Solution as a Hospital-Healthcare Disinfectant.  BIT  is the platform that runs our SteraMist equipment that currently accounts for nearly all of our revenue.

TOMI re-engineered the prototypes into TOMI’s current model of Binary Ionization Technology® (BIT™), branded as SteraMist™. This technology was developed for the neutralization of anthrax spores and sponsored by the U.S. Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA).  This novel DARPA project was sanctioned under DARPA/CMO Contract No. MDA972-03-C-0092 and developed through the Special Projects Office/SPO.: Immune Building
DARPA Order No. P896/00 Program Code: 3310 3701 North Fairfax Drive
Arlington, VA 22203-1714.

In June 2015, SteraMist™ BIT™ was granted a registration from the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) as a hospital-healthcare disinfectant for use as a misting/fogging agent (EPA Registration 90150-2). Our product also holds a second EPA registration for mold control and air & surface remediation (EPA Registration 90150-1).

SteraMist™ Binary Ionization Technology® (BIT™)

BIT™ was developed in response to Amerithrax, the anthrax attacks that occurred in Washington, D.C. shortly after the September 11,2001 US terrorist attacks.  It is a patented two-step process that aerosolizes and activates a low concentration hydrogen peroxide solution producing a fine aqueous mist that contains a high concentration of Reactive Oxidative Species (ROS), mostly hydroxyl radicals. ROS cause damage to pathogenic organisms via mechanisms such as oxidation of unsaturated fatty acids such as carbohydrates, lipids, and amino acids leading to cellular disruption and/or dysfunction. The unique alteration of the chemistry of our solution occurs after passing our EPA registered BIT™ Solution through our atmospheric high voltage cold plasma arc which causes the breaking of the double bond of a hydrogen peroxide molecule.  The net result is the hydroxyl radical. This hydroxyl radical is known as Activated Ionized Hydrogen Peroxide (AIHP). The TOMI™ patented process allows these ROS (hydroxyl radicals) to exist in high concentrations without rapidly recombining and losing their reactivity.

Testing detailed by DARPA demonstrates these ROS, which include the hydroxyl ion and hydroxyl radicals, aggressively break the double bonds in bacterial spores, biological and Chemical warfare agents (BWA and CWA) neutralizing their threat and producing non-toxic by-products.

Brought to the commercial market by TOMI™ in June 2013, our current suite of products includes the SteraMist™ Surface Unit, the SteraMist™ Environment System, and BIT™ Solution. Our SteraMist™ BIT™ platform has expanded beyond the initial chemical and biological warfare applications to deactivate problem microorganisms (including spores) in healthcare, laboratory, clean rooms, and a wide variety of other commercial and residential settings. SteraMist™ BIT™ provides fast acting biological deactivation and works in even the most hard-to-reach areas while leaving no residue or noxious fumes. The by-products produced by SteraMist™ BIT™ are oxygen and humidity.

The SteraMist™ Surface Unit is a fully portable fast-acting, hand held, point and spray disinfection/decontamination system. It is a safe and easy process to make certain that your facility, home, and assets are disinfected/decontaminated to the maximum extent possible. The single applicator Surface Unit enables disinfection of all surfaces–including high touch, sensitive medical equipment, and electronics. The space is safe to re-enter within minutes after the Activated Ionized Hydrogen Peroxide (AIHP) mist has been applied. The EPA registered 5-second application time AND 7-minute contact time seamlessly results in quick room turnover while eliminating pathogens such as MRSA and H1N1.

TOMI’s SteraMist™ Surface Unit is lightweight, easy to transport, and capable of achieving reliable disinfection/decontamination as it is easily incorporated into current cleaning procedures and protocols. The hydroxyl radicals produced by TOMI’s plasma science does not require heating, ventilation, or air conditioning systems to be shut down and requires no wiping, leaves no residue and is a bleach, chlorine, formaldehyde, glutaraldehyde, titanium dioxide, peracetic and silver ion free formula.

The SteraMist™ Environment System is a transportable remotely controlled system that provides complete room disinfection/decontamination of a sealed space, up to 103.8 m3 (3,663 ft3). Individually, each remote applicator can be used to treat a space of approximately 34.6 m3 (1,221 ft3). Multiple Environment Systems can be used simultaneously to accommodate larger spaces. Fast application = minimal down time. Mechanical cleaning that makes whole room disinfecting/decontaminating easier. With this automated touch-less application solution you can treat multiple areas simultaneously. Our hybrid technology – applicators can be used in manual and/or fogging modes. Great for frequent daily use, saves time and labor.  SteraMist™ is a powerful technology in fighting, reducing and eliminating bacteria including C. diff spores and when you reenter the room you can “smell the clean”

TOMI™ currently targets domestic and international markets. Our approach to the international markets is through strategic partners, manufacturer representatives,/or and licensed distribution partners. The company is currently focused in Mexico and Central America, the EU, and Asia where the technology is used for the control of microorganisms and the decontamination of large and small indoor space for biological pathogens and chemical agents. Domestically, TOMI’s primary market is Healthcare-Hospitals, Biosafety, and Pharmaceutical along with many other verticals that TOMI sells to end-users or end-user can elect to have the areas treated through the TOMI Service Network (TSN), a network professional service providers. These include infectious diseases in hospitals, bio-secure labs, pharmaceutical, biodefense, and biosafety facilities – including isolation and transfer chambers, tissue banks, food safety, and many other commercial and residential settings.

TOMI™ has extensive experience in developing training programs and application protocols for its clients and is a member in good standing with The American Biological Safety Association, The American Association of Tissue Banks, Association for Professionals in Infection Control and Epidemiology, Society for Healthcare Epidemiology of America, The Restoration Industry Association, Indoor Air Quality Association, and The International Ozone Association.
