Devicare, a Spanish company specializing in the field of urology will begin distributing a new product called Canoxidin in the Netherlands, as confirmed by Rosendo Garganta, CEO of Devicare.

It is a new medical treatment to reduce incrustations and prevent the risk of urinary tract infection associated with permanent or temporary urological medical devices. Canoxidin combines the action of an acidifier, L-methionine, with crystallization inhibitors such as phytates and theobromine.

Acidification is necessary to compensate for the alkalinization of urine pH associated with the installation of permanent or semi-permanent urological devices. Maintaining urine pH in an acidic range promotes the generation of nitric oxide, a bactericidal molecule. Increasing the concentration of inhibitors in the urine prevents crystallization and deposition of calcium and uric acid crystals on the internal and external surfaces of the urological device.

This product is the first of its kind on a global scale, Garganta pointed out. It is a tablet that is taken three times a day and is aimed at anyone who can carry a catheter, from the elderly in residential centers to patients with spinal cord damage.

For the time being, Devicare is launching this product in the Netherlands, but expects Canoxidin to be marketed and distributed in Malta and Spain during the course of the year, according to the company’s CEO. In fact, the company will soon have its own team to sell its products, Garganta adds.
