Each year enteroviruses kill people worldwide. They are not only dangerous, but they are also hard to cure and costly.
To reduce dangers posed by enteroviruses FEBICO cooperated with a renowned university and extracted a natural substance ApoX from algae strand FEM-101.
ApoX can prevent influenza viruses, enteroviruses, adenoviruses, respiratory viruses, and simple herpes virus type I and type II from forming virus plaques, up to 24 hours.
Febico filed in patents for ApoX in applications such as masks, phones, door knobs, and other places where easily accessible to the public by hands.
ApoX forms a protective layer and effectively inhibits the chances of infection. Because it’s natural, safe, and contains no chemicals, it can be used for people with weak immunity such as children or the elderly.
FEBICO also states that they plan to develop this material as INCI ingredient as a cosmetic substance. Relevant research developments are displayed in Taiwan Healthcare + Expo today.
