LITTLE RIVER, S.C., March 26, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Integrated Environmental Technologies Ltd. (OTCBB:IEVM), announced today that it received approval from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency to market a new Excelyte™ product called Excelyte VET – which can be used to prevent Canine distemper. Canine distemper is highly contagious, resistant to most disinfectants, and is the leading cause of infectious disease deaths in dogs worldwide.
The new product registration (EPA Registration #82341-4) also allows the company to market Excelyte VET to prevent the spread of Canine parvovirus and Bordetella bronchiseptica.
Canine distemper and Canine parvoviruses affect respiratory tracks and gastrointestinal and central nervous systems of dogs, causing vomiting, diarrhea and symptoms of encephalitis in the brain during later stages. Bordetella bronchiseptica bacteria, commonly known as "kennel cough", severely affect the respiratory tracts of dogs and cats. Secondary infections and complications are common with each affliction, partly attributable to the immunosuppressive effects of the bacteria and viruses.
In collaboration with an independent third party, Integrated Environmental Technologies conducted the required testing at an independent EPA approved laboratory, the results of which showed that Excelyte VET was effective as a disinfection/antimicrobial product for use on non-porous hard surfaces in veterinary clinics and hospitals, kennels and animal life science facilities. Derived from naturally occurring salt minerals and water, Excelyte VET provides an environmentally responsible alternative product for use around dogs, cats and other animals. Because of its non-toxic nature, a facility that utilizes Excelyte VET can more efficiently disinfect the facility since Excelyte VET will not harm the animals located in the facility, as is the case with other toxic disinfectants commonly used.
David R. LaVance, President and Chief Executive Officer of Integrated Environmental Technologies, commented: "Excelyte VET is the newest offering under our EcoTreatments™ umbrella. There are more than 120,000 veterinary practices, hospitals and animal shelters in the United States that can greatly benefit from an effective, non-toxic solution. With the registration approval of Excelyte VET, we now have two EPA product registrations, with a combined total of sixteen kill claims, further establishing us as a leader in developing anolyte disinfecting solution produced through electrochemical activation."
