“Under laboratory conditions KBF99 technology was found to kill Herpes viruses (that affects humans) and is from the same family as Equine Herpes Virus (EHV). The structure of EHV cells is described as envelope, meaning that the contents of the cells are encased in a skin or envelope. The KBF99 technology utilizes molecular strands (forming spikes or swords) to stab such cells and break open the envelope and so kill the cell.
Therefore we are confident that KBF99 will kill the Equine Herpes virus on contact. Equine Influenza virus cells are also envelope structures. We emphasize this because not all virus cells are envelope structures, others could be described as similar to jelly, which would not be damaged by an intrusive stabbing activity.
We would always emphasis that although KBF99 products may kill envelope virus structures under laboratory conditions the effectiveness in a ‘field’ situation will be different.
KBF99 should always only be seen as an aid to help prevent the spread of infection, as opposed to any form of a guarantee or any form of a cure. Vale Brothers are unable to make any specific claims with regard to KBF99’s effect on virus cells however we feel it useful to make a statement summarizing where our assumptions from other research and cell structures are taking us.
Vale Brothers and Coventry University are in the process of costing laboratory tests against specific equine viruses to assess the commercial viability to conducting such research.” Peter Wilkes. Vale Brothers Ltd, Walsall, UK
