Skin & Aging Article Finds Derma Sciences MEDIHONEY(TM) Helps to Promote Healing Where Antibiotics Fail
Date:5/2/2008

Researchers Work in-vitro on MRSA, VRE and other multi-resistant organisms

PRINCETON, N.J., May 2 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Derma Sciences (OTC Bulletin Board: DSCI), a provider of advanced wound care products, today announced that the journal Skin & Aging, in its annual review of top wound care studies, devoted a section to MEDIHONEY(TM) Wound & Burn Dressings with Active Leptospermum Honey.

He went on to say that the first Leptospermum honey-based product to enter into the market, MEDIHONEY, is likely to draw significant interest from a public desirous of natural products, and that well-done studies such as the George/Cutting study will help to garner interest by medical professionals.

Derma Sciences CEO Ed Quilty stated, "We are fully aware that, although the benefits of MEDIHONEY have captured the imagination of the public and the medical community alike, it is only through well-designed studies and rigorous clinical evaluations with positive outcomes that widespread adoption and usage of MEDIHONEY will occur.

Additionally, we continue to receive a stream of po
