Clinicians at major NY hospital tout MEDIHONEY(TM) at press conference

PRINCETON, N.J., Jan. 13 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Derma Sciences, Inc. (OTC Bulletin Board: DSCI), a provider of advanced wound care products, announced today that MEDIHONEY was the focus of a major press conference last week at North Shore Long Island Jewish Hospital in Manhasset, NY. At the press conference, clinicians detailed the case of a patient who appeared to be heading towards a lower extremity amputation (LEA) due to a non-healing wound associated with an extremely rare fungal infection.

Video clips of the press conference were subsequently aired on several new broadcasts throughout the NY region. To view these clips, please go to the following links:

According to Mary Brennan, RN, CWOCN, Clinical Nurse Specialist for Wounds at North Shore, "MEDIHONEY helped to turn this wound around for him and allowed us back on track for healing. We had used other therapies, but this was the product that made the difference in a very short time."

There are over 50,000 LEAs each year in the United States alone. The 3-year mortality rate post-LEA is estimated to be around 50%.
