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

sitive clinical evaluations from many wound centers around the globe."

Quilty added, "Our next big milestone is the World Union of Wound Healing Societies conference in Toronto during the first week in June. This conference takes place only once every four years and it draws doctors interested in wound care from all over the globe."
The Skin & Aging article also makes several additional key points:

-- A retrospective study of 400 patients with wounds (pressure ulcers,

diabetic ulcers, and venous ulcers) showed that wounds treated more

frequently with antimicrobial dressings appeared less likely to heal

rapidly, as did ulcers that that were mechanically debrided.

-- A randomized controlled study on healing rates of 71 non-healing venous

leg ulcers showed that none of the patients receiving conservative care

-- defined as the use of hydrocolloid dressings under compression

devices -- saw the ulcers heal completely during the duration of the

6-month study period. Hydrocolloids are one of the most typical

advanced wound care dressings utilized for first-line treatment of

ulcers.

Both these points are notable with comparison to the recent Georgina Gethin study presented last Spring at the European Wound Management Association. This 108-patient randomized controlled study showed that 44% of the non-healing venous leg ulcers treated with Active Leptospermum Honey under compression devices healed within the 12-week study duration, in addition to lowering the incidence of infection. This underscores the wound healing benefit of the dressing in addition to its antimicrobial capability, a feature atypical within common antimicrobial dressings. The study also showed that the dressing was associated with improved autolytic debridement (a more natural and less invasive form of debridement than surgical/mechanical debridement).
