Use of Colloidal Oatmeal Soap Can Reduce Symptoms of Atopic Dermatitis Topical colloidal oatmeal (CO) can reduce local inflammation, itching, and a number of other indications, at low cost and with minimal side effects.
Insight Research Institute conducted a study to test whether the addition of CO to cold-processed vegetable oil soap could significantly clear overt symptoms of atopic eczema within two weeks of use. Our results showed soothing, anti-inflammatory, and anti-pruritic effects suggesting the efficacy of using this soap as a treatment for atopic dermatitis.

Healthcare Associated Infections
Improved control and reduction of healthcare-associated infections (HAI) are perpetual concerns in hospitals and other healthcare settings, including non-hospital residential facilities such as nursing homes and correctional facilities.
A recent review of epidemiological studies on the incidence of MRSA infections has indicated that taken as a whole, there may be no definitive evidence that their incidence is declining significantly. Indeed, contradictions between source studies suggest the need for a comprehensive tracking system, while underscoring the motivation to perform such studies, i.e., nosocomial infections, including MRSA, Clostridium difficile, and others, undermine the therapeutic mission of healthcare facilities. The advent of antibiotic-resistant bacterial strains illustrates pathogens’ persistence in the face of powerful, highly specific chemical agents.
At Insight Research Institute, we are evaluating the safety and effectiveness of a device that produces oxygen-free radicals on sample slides containing MRSA in hospital patient rooms. Our preliminary results are promising and showing a reduction in some types of infections.
