Microbiome: Trend in Care Supports BELANO medical AG
Current reports on the importance of the microbiome for human health confirm BELANO medical AG in its commitment to its business and product strategy. "We recognised the great significance of the microbiome years ago", emphasised CEO Dr Bernd Wegener at an event in Berlin. BELANO medical based the development of medical skincare and cosmetics care products on the results of this research. The effectiveness of both was demonstrated in several clinical trials.

Microbiotic Medical Skincare "ibiotics med" in Long-Term Study
In an extensive user trial, BELANO medical AG has had hundreds of users test its medical skincare "ibiotics med". The invitation to the user trial was through the ibiotics Facebook page. More than 1,200 people applied. From these, 300 participants from all over Germany were selected - each of whom suffered from at least one skin condition such as atopic eczema, psoriasis, acne, or rosacea. In addition, BELANO is conducting a long-term trial for "ibiotics med", again, participants are people suffering from skin conditions such as atopic eczema or psoriasis. The trial will be launched this September and has a duration of several months.

New Findings Regarding Protection from Gastric Cancer or skin conditions
Each year, some 15,000 people in Germany are diagnosed with gastric cancer. In most cases, the disease is preceded by an infection with Helicobacter pylori, a pathogen which may also inflame the stomach lining (gastritis) and cause ulcers. To treat and prevent Helicobacter infections, doctors usually prescribe a combination of several antibiotics, though the body may develop a resistance against these. Prof. Dr. Christine Lang, Head of Scientific Board BELANO medical AG, will present effective and safe alternatives at the Allergy and Endoscopy Conference in Erlangen.

Medical Skincare "ibiotics med" Now Available OTC in Pharmacies
BELANO’s novel microbiotic medical skincare "ibiotics med" is now available OTC in pharmacies across Germany and when recommended by dermatologists and medical practitioners. Sales through pharmacies are an addition to the existing online distribution which continues through pharmacy websites as well as the ibiotics-med online shop.
Sales of the medical skincare "ibiotics med" began in December 2018. It is the result of years of research in biotechnology and microbiology and differs from other skincare products in that it specifically targets the microbiome on our skin. Taking effect directly on the skin, its ingredient stimulates the natural bacteria which play a key role in a healthy skin flora.

Additional Patent for Bio-Based Agent Against Colds
BELANO medical AG has received a patent in South Korea for its bio-based, microbiotic, and antibacterial agent "salvans". This agent is now patented in many countries, among them Germany, Austria, Switzerland, France, Spain, Italy, the United States, Japan, and China.
The microbiotic agent is based on a natural lactic acid bacterium which specifically coaggregates the pathogen Streptococcus pyogenes without harming existing healthy bacteria. This could make treatment with non-specific antiseptics or antibiotics (broad-spectrum antibiotics) unnecessary.


December 2018
New Medical Skincare Using Patented Stimulans-Agent
BELANO medical AG will launch a novel microbiotic medical skincare intended for use in the complementary treatment of eczema, psoriasis, rosacea, acne, and other skin conditions. The new line "ibiotics med" includes four products – cleanser, lotion, intensive cream, and intensive care cream – and has been specifically developed for people suffering from inflammatory skin conditions and for use in treatment by dermatologists and non-medical practitioners.
This novel care product is based on the insight that in skin conditions, the skin flora – the natural diversity of healthy bacteria on the skin – is usually imbalanced. This may weaken the immune system and the skin’s resistance to disease, allowing pathogens to proliferate and triggering inflammations.

EVONIK and BELANO cooperate in probiotic cosmetics

The active ingredient is also contained in BELANO's cosmetic care series "ibiotics™"; for irritable skin. For summer 2018, BELANO has announced "biotics™ med", a microbiotic medical skin care product series developed for supporting care of chronic inflammatory dermatoses like atopic dermatitis, psoriasis, rosacea and acne vulgaris with the active ingredient "Lactobacillus Stimulans™".

Patent granted for probiotic against multi-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA)
BELANO medical AG has received a US patent for the microbial active ingredient "Dermasana™" which it has developed. The active ingredient is obtained from a lactic acid bacterium and selectively binds the pathogen Staphylococcus aureus thus allowing its elimination from infected tissues. Globally, this is one of the most common pathogens that develops resistance to multiple antibiotics (MRSA). In people with a weakened immune system, an infection with the Staphylococcus aureus can lead to death.
