Dr. Gregory D. Hobbs, Past Chair, Department of Emergency Medicine at Texas A&M College of Medicine had this to say about the APT™ T3X formulation: There is no downside to this approach, and potentially a very significant upside for our at-risk populations. I will certainly be using APT™ T3X.

A Powerful Preventative in the Fight Against Covid-19
Advanced Penetration Technology, LLC, (APT) a Texas- and Indiana-based company (http://www.aptt3x.com) that specializes in innovative healthcare solutions for patients utilizing non-prescription, Over The Counter (OTC) products, was today provided results of an independent laboratory evaluation of a topical medical formulation that mitigates or neutralizes infectivity of SARS-CoV-2 virus (COVID-19) in vitro. The focus is preventing COVID-19 from entering the body through the nasal passages, thereby significantly reducing the likelihood of people becoming infected with the virus.
“We believe this is the breakthrough that will reduce the likelihood of becoming infected with SARS-CoV-2 (COVID) through the nose, which is now recognized as the primary site of infection,” said Dr. Brian J. Huber, the CEO and Founder of APT, LLC. “While the world anxiously awaits a vaccine, APT T3X is the type of protection so many have been hoping for. This could be an active first line of defense against the COVID virus. It is a powerful and effective layer of prevention.”
Dr. Huber also stated, “Colleges have been disrupted. Schools and teachers have been disrupted. Small and large business have been disrupted. Sports, worship, work and general social interactions have, and will continue to be, disrupted until there is a vaccine. In the meantime, APT T3X provides the type of protection that could be key to our schools and economy reopening fully and safely.”
A London-based independent research laboratory, Virology Research Services Ltd., evaluated the in vitro anti-viral impact of the product, named APT™ T3X, against the SARS-CoV-2 virus, NL63 coronavirus and Influenza A virus and concluded that it is a highly effective formulation in preventing infectivity. The research concludes that APT™ T3X effectively neutralizes viral infectivity within seconds. This research was funded by Patient Focused Tele-Health, LLC.
“Under the conditions tested, APT T3X displays a 99.9% virucidal activity against human SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus,” the report concluded. This formulation will also neutralize infectivity of Influenza viruses, which are the next seasonal illness for students, healthcare workers and the general public to consider.
The testing was performed over four months, May through August, 2020. All definitive anti-viral assays were performed in triplicate.
APT™T3X is a topical liquid formulation applied inside the nasal passages by a cotton tip applicator (like a Q-tip®) with 3-4 drops on the tip. People simply need to “paint” the nasal channels and inside of their nostrils with the cotton tip applicator.
By coating the nasal passages, a barrier is formed that will reduce the viral load of exposure. The efficacy of APT™T3X is due to APT’s proprietary formulation combined with Tetracycline hydrochloride as the active pharmaceutical ingredient. The product is registered with the Federal Drug Administration as an over-the-counter ointment, used in an off-label manner to decrease the viral load of exposure.
The product was initially developed eight years ago for resistant-bacterial infections, but its formulation additionally provides powerful anti-fungal and anti-viral therapies. In over 8 years of use it has no documented side effects.
“As this virus took off last Spring, we thought the APT™T3X product could prevent or reduce the ability of the virus to enter the human body through the nose,” Huber said. “We felt it was our call-to-duty to investigate. That’s why we sent APT™ T3X to an independent virology lab for proper antiviral evaluation and tests. We’re highly encouraged by the laboratory results and conclusions. The APT™ T3X is a highly effective antiviral formulation. Until there is a vaccine, the best thing we can do is prevent the virus from entering someone’s body through the nose, which is what our product does.”
It’s all about the nose. Recent studies by the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) and Johns Hopkins Medicine studies concluded that people contract COVID-19 and other viruses primarily through the nose. The NOSE is the primary site of infectivity and replication for COVID-19 that enables this to spread elsewhere in the body. In addition to following CDC guidelines, the APT™T3X provides ANOTHER layer of needed preventative protection.
The product is available at the APT website, http://www.aptt3x.com. Plans are underway to scale for mass production.
