An age-old battle
Head lice are blood-feeding parasites that have plagued humans for over a million years. They cause itching and scratching and spread quickly among children in classrooms and among family members. Most frustrating for parents, they require considerable time and effort to eradicate. When head lice are detected, children must often miss school, parents miss work dealing with the problem, and despite the fact that head lice affect people at every socioeconomic status, families often feel stigmatized by an infestation in their homes.
Overuse, “super lice” and the problem with pesticides
Most over-the counter head lice treatments currently sold in the U.S. contain pyrethroids, but over time, lice have developed resistance to these pesticides, rendering them ineffective. As these pesticide products stop working, consumers may misuse them on children, thinking a higher or more frequent dose than is labeled will increase efficacy.
As parents themselves, the Piedmont team knew there had to be a better way to eliminate lice on young children, and they put their extensive experience in paraciticides to work.
The RESULTZ® Lice and Egg Elimination Kit kills and removes head lice with a unique patented formulation which eliminates the potential for resistance. In fact, following double-blind, randomized U.S. clinical study, lice removed by the kit were tested, and 100% were found to be genetically resistant to pyrethroid pesticides.
Easy at-home use
The RESULTZ® comb-through product takes just five minutes to apply at home. It is an odorless, easy-to-use, non-pesticide formulation that parents can use with complete confidence and peace of mind.
Ready for commercialization
The RESULTZ Kit is ready to enter the $250 million-plus U.S. head lice treatment market. Piedmont is seeking a strategic commercial partner for the U.S. launch.RESULTZ is a registered trademark of Piedmont Pharmaceuticals LLC
