"The results of the study showed that patients with partial thickness burns treated with microbial cellulose had a shorter duration of hospital stay, lower pain scores both during and after wound care, and they needed fewer changes of dressing. There was also a tendency for epithelialisation to be quicker in the cellulose group."
How it works
Epiprotect®2117 replaces the use of animal-derived products for burn care in a cost-effective way.
Epiprotect®2117 is indicated for patients with full- and partial thickness burns. The product has a nanostructure similar to collagen. If the wound is not infected and not deeper than the depth of hair follicles, the protein secreted by the wound will penetrate into the nanostructure of the dressing and anchor it to the wound. If the wound is deeper than the depth of the hair follicles, the dressing will not adhere and can be used to protect from bacteria from the outside and to keep a moist environment.
Wound healing, without dressing changes
Once Epiprotect®2117 adhered to a superficial wound, it will in most of the cases stay on until the wound is fully healed. The dressing works like a scaffold for a crust, that will peel off together with the dressing when the wound is healed.
