Derma Sciences Announces Clinical Poster on Use of MEDIHONEY(TM) Wound & Burn Dressings Wins First Place Award at APWCA
Date:3/20/2008

Over 1 million patients with non-healing leg ulcers each year in the US

PRINCETON, N.J., March 20 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Derma Sciences, Inc. (OTC Bulletin Board: DSCI), provider of advanced wound care products, announced today that one of the four abstracts detailing the clinical usage of its newly released MEDIHONEY(TM) Wound & Burn Dressings with Active Leptospermum Honey presented at the annual American Professional Wound Care Association (APWCA) conference held the second week in March in Forth Worth, Texas, was awarded first prize in the association's review of all posters presented. The poster, titled "Chronic Lower Extremity Ulceration -- Use of a Leptospermum Impregnated Alginate to Accelerate Wound Closure," was presented by Dr. Matt Regulski, DPM, Toms River Foot and Ankle Surgical Associates, New Jersey. The poster, selected by a multidisciplinary group including a podiatrist, a vascular surgeon, and a wound care certified nurse, was one of 40 posters accepted at this year's conference.

It has been estimated that the average total cost of care to manage a non-healing leg ulcer is roughly $10,000. Costs can increase dramatically if surgical interventions are required. Dr. Regulski's study looked at 8 patients he had been treating that had non-healing venous leg ulcers. All patients had been managed with multi-layer compression along with another advanced wound care dressing to cover the wound. The study design had a typical 12-week evaluation period, standard in protocols that look to quantify the complete 100% healing rate. The same multi-layer compression was continued, but the wound dressing covering the wound was changed to MEDIHONEY. After only 6 weeks, five of the wounds had completely closed, and the other three wounds averaged 75% closure by the end of the study period. This resulte
