Patients Say MPM Medical's Regenecare Gel Significantly Reduced the Itching and Pain of Skin Rashes Triggered by Anti-Cancer Drugs
Date:3/30/2009

IRVING, Texas, March 30 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Patients undergoing cancer treatment reported that using Regenecare hydrogel significantly reduced the pain and itching associated with the sometimes-severe skin rashes caused by anti-cancer drugs.

Conducted by the Western University of Health Sciences, the study substantiated the findings of nine previous clinical trials recognizing Regenecare for its pain-relieving and wound-healing benefits. Manufactured by MPM Medical, Inc., Regenecare is the only wound and pain management product of its kind on the market.

"Pain management is one of the most-significant issues facing healthcare today," said MPM President Paul Miller. "Many patients stop or forgo treatment because they cannot tolerate the itching and painful side effects often associated with these treatments. Regenecare is a unique hydrogel whose benefits are substantiated by science and validated by patients."

The six-week study followed 13 patients who were taking a class of anti-cancer drugs that, while effective, often produce a severe rash on a patient's face, neck, back and legs. If scratched, these rashes can become infected. Patients reported "significant reduction" of itching when using Regenecare, according to the study.

Researchers credit Regenecare's unparalleled pain relief and wound healing to its formulation of 2% lidocaine (for local pain management), marine collagen (to promote tissue formation), Aloe vera (to enhance circulation and to promote emollient effect) and sodium alginate (to absorb exudates).
