With the current environment, there is a global race to develop a trusted and safe therapeutic treatment against COVID-19. APT™ T3X is a tetracycline hydrochloride first aid
antibiotic produced by APT, LLC. It is an over-the-counter, FDA-registered formulation that is proven to abolish viral infectivity.1
HOW IT WORKS
The Advanced Penetration Technology™ combined with Tetracycline, imparts a mechanical and biochemical neutralization effect on viruses. The mechanical nature of disrupting the lipid envelope of the Coronavirus immediately neutralizes the virus. This neutralization inactivates the ability of the virus to penetrate into the cells of the body and begin replication.
APT™ T3X is applied to the nasal passages (inside of the nose) and immediately acts to reduce the viral load (the number of viral particles present) of exposure to the SARS-CoV-2 virus. Viral load is directly connected to disease severity. This revolutionary and proprietary topical formulation is empowered by the Advanced Penetration Technology™ platform, destroying viruses before they can infect and cause disease.
The APT™ T3X has NO documented side effects in over 8 years of application and use. Its ability to disrupt, destroy, and neutralize viruses is unmatched. When used appropriately, this is a powerful step in the prevention of COVID-19.
While vaccines are currently in various stages of development around the globe, the associated testing and certification timelines (safety, efficacy, and approval) are unknown and we could still be months or years away from having an approved vaccine available for human use. The current challenges with viral mutations (already documented with SARS-CoV-2) will impact any efficacy of vaccine over time.
The one key step for the general population, that until now has been missing, is the direct application of a barrier to decrease the Viral Load of Exposure.
APT™ T3X provides another barrier of protection against the COVID-19 virus.
Viral Research Services, Ltd., evaluated the anti-viral efficacy of the APT™ T3X formulation against the Coronavirus (NL63) and Influenza virus proving—through a variety of testing protocols—that when appropriately used, APT™ T3X is a highly effective preventative against the Coronavirus and decreases the viral load of exposure.

Dr. Michela Mazzon, lead scientist at Viral Research Services, found that “the APT™ T3X formulation abolishes viral infectivity.”
WHAT DOCTORS ARE SAYING
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:
“I have recently been introduced to a novel topical medication delivery formulation, APT™ T3X, which appears to provide a significant protective barrier to help prevent the user from contracting COVID-19. This formulation has been in use since 2012 for topical delivery of antibiotics in wound care and acne treatment, and there have been no reported side-effects from its use in these patients.
APT™ T3X recently underwent testing at an accredited virology research lab in England to determine its ability to kill both Corona and influenza viruses. The results showed that APT™ T3X killed at least 99.9% of these viruses. Research has shown that COVID-19 is primarily contracted by humans through the nose. Twice daily nasal application of APT™ T3X therefore appears to have the ability to provide an additional layer of protection against COVID-19, with no known side-effects.
In normal times, I would recommend that this product undergo a randomized, controlled clinical trial before wide-spread clinical adoption. However, these are not normal times, and traditional scientific practices have been suspended in favor of expedited processes for adoption of low risk, potentially helpful medications. Within this context, I strongly recommend making this product immediately available to frontline medical providers, schoolteachers and other essential workers as an additional layer of protection, in combination with the current CDC guidelines for mask wearing and social distancing.
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 during my emergency department shifts.”
The APT™ T3X is an additional layer of protection, not a stand-alone solution. Following the
CDC guidelines for COVID-19 prevention
is always recommended.
