Sonoma Pharmaceuticals Announces Independent Report Relating to Efficacy and Safety of Hypochlorous Acid in Improving Surgical Outcomes and Wound Healing in Dermatology
Date:5/16/2017

Hypochlorous acid was recently highlighted in an independent review published in the March 2017 issue of Journal of Drugs in Dermatology. Authored by Kristin Totoraitis BS, Joel L. Cohen, MD. and Adam Friedman, MD., the article assesses the impact of various agents encompassing topical antiseptics including chlorhexidine and povidone-iodine; topical antibiotics including neomycin and bacitracin; and hypochlorous acid (such as Sonoma’s patented Microcyn® Technology) on the optimization of post-surgical wound healing. Sonoma Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (NASDAQ: SNOA, warrants SNOAW), is a specialty pharmaceutical company that develops and markets unique and effective solutions for the treatment of dermatological conditions and advanced tissue care.

Although low risk, the report recognizes that one notable barrier to proper wound healing is surgical site infection. The use of various antibiotics and antiseptics attempt to address this issue, however these products are not without consequence. The overuse of topical antibiotics as a prophylaxis for infection has contributed to increased bacterial resistance, and in fact is no longer recommended by the American Academy of Dermatology in clean post-surgical wounds. Also noted in the report, topical antiseptics can have a cytotoxic effect on keratinocytes and may actually impede wound healing as a result. Some can actually produce both otologic and ocular toxic effects when used on the face, recently highlighted in the dermatologic literature

In summary, the report opines: “Emerging products, such as hypochlorous acid, may be a potential alternative to the more commonly used agents, as it has effective antimicrobial actions and minimal adverse effects.”

“Hypochlorous acid is a well-established broad-spectrum antimicrobial, anti-inflammatory and anti-itch agent that our own immune system produces for these important purposes,” said Adam Friedman, MD, and lead author of the report. “The overall issue with capitalizing clinically on these properties is both ease of application and product stability. A topical formulation that allows the patient to easily use hypochlorous acid with assured stability is highly advantageous.”
