"This reflects a commitment on the part of Protectus Medical Devices to introducing the Company's revolutionary Hypodermic Safety Syringe technology to the nation at large," said Dr. John. Salstrom, President and CEO.

"Our country pays a heavy price for the cost of needlestick injuries every year, adding an additional burden to our health care industry in the billions of dollars.

"In addition to the enormous cost to our country's healthcare industry, there is the horrible human tragedy side of the needlestick injury problem, namely, that of the nurses, doctors and health care workers who contract HIV, Hepatitis, and other blood borne diseases from such needlestick injuries, some cases of which are fatal," Dr. Salstrom continued.
