BROSSARD, QC, August 4th /CNW Telbec/ - Oral Science International (OSI), announces the Canadian launch of COLD & FLU GUARD™ for Health Care Professionals and for all those worried about the damaging effects of viruses on their work, daily lives, and society.

COLD & FLU GUARD™ is a medical device available in Canada and Europe as an oral and nasal spray that forms a protective barrier against multiple pathogens. Hyaluronic Acid, a key ingredient, traps and isolates viruses. FLAVOBAC™, a patented plant-based bioflavonoid complex, deactivates and destroys viruses neutralizing their ability to infect cells.

COLD & FLU GUARD™ is designed to be applied directly in the most common route of respiratory viral infection, the throat and the nose.

"COLD & FLU GUARD™ creates an organic barrier to protect your health. FLAVOBAC™ kills pathogens within 5 minutes. FLAVOBAC™ has been shown in vitro to kill human Coronavirus, Influenza virus, RSV, Rhinovirus and many more viruses including the most difficult strains of cold and flu H5N1 (bird flu), H1N1 (swine flu), and coronavirus SARS-CoV", said Dr. Michael Glogauer, Professor of Dentistry and Chief Science Officer of Oral Science International.

"The current infection control crisis has raised awareness about the growing importance of protection against viruses. Oral Science International is proud to introduce COLD & FLU GUARD™", said Christian Sauvageau, President of Oral Science International.  "COLD & FLU GUARD™ is a novel, effective, convenient, safe and well tolerated option to protect healthcare workers, their colleagues, and their families against external pathogens that enter through their mouth and nose », added Mr. Sauvageau.
