  Wound Care Update 
  • Tissue Regenix reports positive interim trial results
    An experimental product based on animal tissue significantly reduced the surface area of chronic wounds after six weeks in a 20-patient trial, manufacturer Tissue Regenix reported. The dCELL Dermis technology involves stripping cellular material from animal tissue that would cause humans to reject the graft, creating a scaffold that encourages healthy cell growth. Full trial results are expected by the end of the year. Bloomberg Businessweek (10/4) LinkedInFacebookTwitterEmail this Story

  • Study: Polyhexanide/betaine solution reduces microbes in vitro
    A solution containing 0.1% polyhexanide and 0.1% betaine significantly reduced 12 of 13 microorganisms often found in chronic wounds in an in vitro study. Growth of Aspergillus brasiliensis was reduced, but not to the same extent as Staphylococcus epidermidis, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Candida albicans, vancomycin-resistant Enterococcus faecalis, E. coli and methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus, among other microorganisms.

  • Researchers to test the effects of estrogen on wounds
    The hormone estrogen may encourage wound healing, which could explain why wounds tend to heal more slowly as people age, researchers at the University of Manchester's Healing Foundation Centre say. A clinical trial in the next few months will test the breast cancer drug tamoxifen's effects on wound healing. NetDoctor (U.K.) (10/3) LinkedInFacebookTwitterEmail this Story

    Ethicon, a Johnson & Johnson unit, is preparing to launch its STRATAFIX line of knotless tissue control devices, which are intended to provide surgeons with more flexibility and control in creating tissue closures without the need for knots.

  • N.J. gets approval for Medicaid overhaul
    New Jersey received federal approval for a redesign of its Medicaid program that will give the state more flexibility in how it serves the elderly and people with disabilities. The plan calls for creating an incentive program for hospitals to improve quality of care, transfers long-term care services for the elderly to a managed care system and creates a managed care program for adults with mental illness.
