Ocean Alchemists is made up of a team of scientists devoted to bringing new medical technologies to the natural world. With the continued generosity from CoreRx Pharmaceuticals, Ocean Alchemists has access to the highest caliber of pharmaceutical formulation development knowledge, techniques and equipment.
Through incredible partnerships with research groups around the world we have collectively created the world's first coral ointment! It was designed to treat against Stony Coral Tissue Loss Disease (SCTLD), a devastating disease that has been killing coral across the state of Florida and is actively spreading through the Caribbean.
We are supplying dive strike teams with this ointment, currently referred to as CoralCure Ointment Base2B so that they can treat their corals that have become infected with SCTLD. This ointment paired with Amoxicillin Trihydrate can be used to apply treatment directly to the diseased tissue and has had over an 85% success rate at treating SCTLD over the past few years in the state of Florida. So far we have also provided ointment to the US Virgin Islands, British Virgin Islands, The Cayman Islands, Honduras, Mexico, Turks & Caicos, Puerto Rico, St. Eustatius, Belize, & Jamaica!
Our next steps are to create a new formulation that can be used to treat SCTLD and a wide variety of other coral diseases as well. The new formulations will contain all the necessary active ingredients, will have a long shelf life, and will come packaged ready to application. We are also currently investigating large scale colony treatment methods.
Together we can continue to make scientific advancements that take action to save our coral reefs and the vast ecosystems they support!
