Our Founder

Dr. Lanny L. Johnson, M.D.

Our Founder: Lanny L. Johnson, M.D. is an internationally recognized orthopedic surgeon.  As such he was one of the pioneers in arthroscopic surgery, a holder of 77 US patents primarily related to medicine.

Since concluding his clinical practice, he has devoted his life to research and development primarily in anti-microbials.  He first recognized that a food metabolite, protocatechuic acid had broad spectrum anti-biotic properties.  He was granted US patent 9,925,152 Antimicrobials and methods of use thereof for wound healing. March 27, 2018. 

He then discovered that this same reagent coated on metal or cloth possessed a biofilm destroying property for MRSA and Pseudomonas.  He was issued US patent 10,004,705. Antimicrobials and the methods of use. 7/26/2018.  

When COVID-19 emerged he promptly investigated the potential for protocatechuic acid effect against the SARS CoV2 virus.  Studies at two independent contract laboratories confirmed the hypothesis; the SARS CoV2 virus was inactivated upon contact with the PCA crystal.
