The Herald Business Journal   |   Everett, Washingtion UW   Bothell’s   continued   partnership   with   BRIOTECH,   to   improve   sanitation   in   developing   regions   of   the   world,   leads   to   a grant from the National Institues of Health (NIH).
CHEMISTRY PROFESSOR CAUSING A STINK ON CAMPUS — FOR GOOD
“Lori   Robins   was   awarded   a   $155,000   grant   from   the   National   Institutes   of   Health   to   research   how   to   reduce   the   foul odor in latrines. “Our   goal   now   is   to   help   people   who   need   it   most   first,”   said   Robins,   an   Issaquah   native   and   University   of   Washington Bothell   professor   since   2013.   “Toilets   in   developing   countries,   it’s   a   huge   problem…Our   approach   is   to   get   rid   of   the   odor and   make   it   more   clean   by   inactivating   viruses,”   said   Robins,   who   has   a   doctoral   degree   in   bioorganic   chemistry.   “Viruses that   cause   diarrhea,   for   example,   can   lead   to   death   in   developing   countries   because   they   don’t   have   a   way   to   help   with   the illnesses.” The   UW   Bothell   research   is   a   collaboration   with   Briotech,   a   small   Woodinville   company   that   manufactures   hypochlorous acid for skin care. “One   of   the   things   we   figured   out   you   can   do   with   this   product   is   control   odor,”   said   Briotech   science   officer   Jeff   Williams, a   retired   Michigan   professor   whose   career   focused   on   microbiology   and   infectious   diseases.   “It   is   such   a   big   issue   in   many people’s lives. I was familiar with it in sanitation and latrines because I’ve worked in India, Africa and South America.” Williams   said   the   university   provides   the   brainpower   and   technology   to   study   uses   for   the   company’s   product…The   latrine project started over the summer and has funding for two years.

IMMUNE SYSTEM OXIDANT COULD BE KEY TO INACTIVATING PRIONS
“We   have   tested   the   anti-prion   activity    of    (BRIO   HOCL TM )    that    poses    no   apparent   hazard   to   either   users   or   many    surfaces.   BRIO   HOCL TM    can    be    applied   directly   to   skin   and   mucous   membranes   and   has   been   aerosolized   to   treat   entire   rooms without apparent deleterious effects.”

“A   product   that   mimics   the   natural   oxidative   killing   action   of   human   immune   cells   against   bacteria,   viruses,   and   fungi   also can   inactivate   prions   and   other   proteins,   some   of   which   are   thought   to   be   important   in   Parkinson’s   and   Alzheimer’s diseases,   according   to   National   Institutes   of   Health   (NIH)   researchers.   Prions   are   deadly   protein-based   pathogens   that are    extremely    difficult    to    inactivate;    recommended    decontamination    treatments    often    are    dangerous    to    people    or damaging   to   surfaces,   such   as   those   on   surgical   devices.   There   are   reported   cases   of   a   prion   disease   (Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease, or CJD) being transmitted to patients via contaminated surgical equipment. Scientists    at    NIH’s    National    Institute    of    Allergy    and    Infectious    Diseases    (NIAID)    first    evaluated    the    product    BRIO HOCL TM    in   laboratory   experiments   using   a   prion   diagnostic   test   they   developed   (RT-QuIC).   They   then   confirmed   the results   in   mice.   The   scientists   determined   that   BRIO   HOCL TM    eliminated   all   detectable   prion-seeding   activity   for   CJD, bovine   spongiform   encephalopathy   (BSE,   or   mad   cow   disease),   chronic   wasting   disease   (a   disease   primarily   found   in   deer, elk,   and   moose)   and   scrapie   (a   disease   of   sheep)   in   brain   tissue.   They   conducted   a   portion   of   the   study   using   stainless   steel wire   as   a   surrogate   for   surgical   instruments.   BRIO   HOCL TM    had   similar   effects   on   two   proteins   thought   to   contribute   to Parkinson’s disease and Alzheimer’s disease. The   Seattle-area   company   Briotech,   Inc.,   developed   BRIO   HOCL TM    to   remove   biofilms   –   clusters   of   bacteria   –   from   tubing and   other   surgical   equipment.   BRIO   HOCL TM    is   a   highly   purified   formulation   of   hypochlorous   acid,   which   immune   cells produce naturally to kill microbes. The   NIAID   researchers   now   are   interested   in   discovering   how   hypochlorous   acid   inactivates   prions,   and   determining whether   they   can   harness   that   process   to   treat   or   prevent   prion   and   other   protein-based   diseases.   They   also   plan   to evaluate    whether    BRIO    HOCL TM     can    inactivate    prions    associated    with    other    tissues,    fluids,    tools,    instruments,    and environmental   surfaces   that   may   be   of   concern   in   medicine,   biotechnology,   agriculture,   food   production,   and   wildlife biology.”

CHEMICAL WARFARE FOR INSTRUMENTS
“It   seems   like   every   few   months   another   story   on   “dirty”   surgical   instruments   hits   the   media   and   causes   shockwaves throughout    the    industry.    These    news    reports    call    attention    to    what    those    in    the    central    sterile/sterile    processing department (CS/SPD) have long known — that their jobs are critical to delivering safe and effective patient care. Proteinaceous   infectious   particles,   commonly   known   as   “prions”   are   pathogens   that   are   composed   of   ‘unfolded’   proteins containing   no   DNA.   Creutzfeldt-Jakob   disease   (CJD)   and   even   evidence   that   suggests   Alzheimer’s   disease   are   examples   of transmissible   spongiform   encephalopathies   (TSE)   which   progress   rapidly   in   the   brain   and   are   always   fatal   making   them   a major concern to healthcare professionals. “The   reprocessing   of   contaminated   instruments   that   may   have   been   exposed   to   CJD/TSE   in   healthcare   facilities   today need   to   be   assessed.   Due   to   the   resilience   of   prions   and   potential   of   the   unknown   possibility   that   a   patient   may   have   CJD, instrument reprocessing becomes more challenging.” Investigators   at   the   U.S.   National   Institute   of   Allergy   and   Infectious   Diseases   (NIAID)   Rocky   Mountain   Laboratories,   in collaboration   with   researchers   at   the   University   of   Washington   (UW)   Bothell,   UW   Seattle   and   the   University   of   Verona (Italy),   recently   demonstrated   the   effectiveness   of   Briotech’s   patent-   pending   unique   proprietary   formula   hypochlorous acid    (HOCl)    in    inactivating    prions.    HOCl    is    naturally    produced    in    the    body’s    cells    to    aid    in    ridding    it    of    microbes.

UW BOTHELL WORKING TO REDUCE FOUL ODOR OF LATRINES, AIRING ISSUE IN GLOBAL SANITATION
“BOTHELL,   Washington   —   The   University   of   Washington   Bothell   is   helping   develop   a   disinfectant   to   reduce   the   foul   odor of   latrines.   More   than   a   superficial   air   freshener,   the   goal   is   a   product   that   would   increase   the   use   of   pit   toilets   by   making them   less   offensive.   This   could   improve   sanitation   in   developing   regions   of   the   world   where   defecation   in   the   open   air spreads disease. “This   could   be   something   that   changes   the   world.”   said   Robins,   a   faculty   member   since   2013   in   the   Physical   Sciences Division of UW Bothell’s School of Science, Technology, Engineering & Mathematics. In   work   that   began   this   summer,   Robins’   research   group   hopes   to   show   that   the   chemical   spray   can   combat   four   stinky compounds   in   a   latrine’s   headspace.   In   addition,   they   hope   to   show   the   aerosol   inactivates   noroviruses   responsible   for gastroenteritis, vomiting and diarrhea.”

“Lori   Robins   was   awarded   a   $155,000   grant   from   the   National Institutes   of   Health   to   research   how   to   reduce   the   foul   odor   in latrines. “Our    goal    now    is    to    help    people    who    need    it    most    first,”    said Robins,   an   Issaquah   native   and   University   of   Washington   Bothell professor   since   2013.   “Toilets   in   developing   countries,   it’s   a   huge problem…Our    approach    is    to    get    rid    of    the    odor    and    make    it more    clean    by    inactivating    viruses,”    said    Robins,    who    has    a doctoral    degree    in    bioorganic    chemistry.    “Viruses    that    cause diarrhea,   for   example,   can   lead   to   death   in   developing   countries because they don’t have a way to help with the illnesses.” The    UW    Bothell    research    is    a    collaboration    with    Briotech,    a small    Woodinville    company    that    manufactures    hypochlorous acid for skin care. “One   of   the   things   we   figured   out   you   can   do   with   this   product   is control    odor,”    said    Briotech    science    officer    Jeff    Williams,    a retired       Michigan       professor       whose       career       focused       on microbiology   and   infectious   diseases.   “It   is   such   a   big   issue   in many    people’s    lives.    I    was    familiar    with    it    in    sanitation    and latrines because I’ve worked in India, Africa and South America.” Williams     said     the     university     provides     the     brainpower     and technology   to   study   uses   for   the   company’s   product…The   latrine project started over the summer and has funding for two years.
“We   have   tested   the   anti-prion   activity    of    (Brio   HOCl TM )    that   poses    no   apparent   hazard   to   either   users   or   many    surfaces.    Brio HOCl TM    can    be    applied   directly   to   skin   and   mucous   membranes and     has     been     aerosolized     to     treat     entire     rooms     without apparent deleterious effects.”

UW BOTHELL WORKING TO REDUCE FOUL ODOR OF LATRINES, AIRING ISSUE IN GLOBAL SANITATION
“BOTHELL,     Washington     —     The     University     of     Washington Bothell   is   helping   develop   a   disinfectant   to   reduce   the   foul   odor of   latrines.   More   than   a   superficial   air   freshener,   the   goal   is   a product    that    would    increase    the    use    of    pit    toilets    by    making them   less   offensive.   This   could   improve   sanitation   in   developing regions   of   the   world   where   defecation   in   the   open   air   spreads disease. “This   could   be   something   that   changes   the   world.”   said   Robins,   a faculty   member   since   2013   in   the   Physical   Sciences   Division   of UW    Bothell’s    School    of    Science,    Technology,    Engineering    & Mathematics. In   work   that   began   this   summer,   Robins’   research   group   hopes to     show     that     the     chemical     spray     can     combat     four     stinky compounds   in   a   latrine’s   headspace.   In   addition,   they   hope   to show     the     aerosol     inactivates     noroviruses     responsible     for gastroenteritis, vomiting and diarrhea.”
