Snap shot from the Trials

MRSA Trials skin washMRSA Trials - Products & Funding provided by Novasel Australia Pty Limited Brand owner of METIQUE®
Integrated Approach to MRSA Control in a Rural, Regional-Referral Healthcare Setting March 2010 (using our 5% Skin Wash.

Results/key findings “Ours is the first report on the use of tea tree oil as a major component of a whole-body MRSA decolonization regimen. Although further, more rigorous studies of tea tree oil are needed, the frequent use of this skin antiseptic may be an important method for the maintenance of long-term MRSA decolonization, especially among patients with recurrent community-acquired MRSA infection, among whom extranasal colonization may play a significant role. Because we believed it to be a critical component of our decolonization regimen, we encouraged patients to use the 5% tea tree oil body wash on a frequent basis, beyond that prescribed in the protocol. The tea tree oil 5% body wash was well tolerated; it is less irritating to the skin with prolonged use than chlorhexidine. Overall, our decolonization regimen was well tolerated with minimal adverse effects. “
Decolonisation of MRSA positive Wounds’ published (February 2010)

Results/key findings Wounds to which this tea tree oil irrigant was applied began to heal; most wounds (8 of 11) were smaller after the tea tree oil product was used and this included chronic wounds. This is despite most participants being withdrawn from the study before completing the 12 weeks of treatment due to the commencement of antibiotics or other complications. An additional finding from this small study was that tea tree oil appeared safe to use and was well-tolerated on open wounds, including some large wounds. Furthermore, there were no irritant or allergic reactions to this tea tree oil product.
