CARLSBAD, Calif., Jan. 20, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Aubrey Inc. – http://www.aubreyinc.com – announced that after a successful soft release and product evaluation phase of its second generation product, AWBAT® Plus, it is now in full production and currently available for purchase. Founder Aubrey Woodroof, PhD MBA, expresses his appreciation for being able to advance the art once again. "It is a wonderful feeling to hear from a renowned surgeon that 'AWBAT® Plus has the potential to take wound coverage to the next level' and that it 'provides not only an optimal milieu but also a stimulus to promote active wound healing.'"
AWBAT® Plus utilizes the same patented technology for the precision-porous silicone-nylon membrane as the platform product, AWBAT®. AWBAT® Plus, however, contains not only significantly more collagen but also chondroitin-4-sulfate, chondroitin-6-sulfate, vitamin C, vitamin E and Immuno-10 (activated mixture of polysaccharides from Aloe). It was determined by FDA to be a combination product consisting of device components as well as drugs. In subsequent laboratory testing, Immuno-10 was found to stimulate human dermal fibroblast proliferation, as well as fibroblast collagen and alpha-SMA production. Human keratinocyte production was also enhanced by Immuno-10. AWBAT® Plus is currently indicated for partial thickness burns, meshed autografts, and donor sites.
Woodroof stated: "We are very excited to have AWBAT® Plus now also available in our proprietary glove design. Hand burns are common injuries and complex wounds to treat. The AWBAT® Plus Glove was designed specifically for ease of application and form fit, and to promote early mobility and rehabilitation, which is essential for maintaining functional dexterity and faster return to work."
Aubrey Inc. intends to seek clearance for use of AWBAT® Plus on chronic wounds this year. Woodroof noted that in an investigator initiated evaluation of AWBAT® Plus on chronic wounds, the surgeon stated, "We have found AWBAT®-D Plus to be an effective alternative to Apligraf®, Dermagraft® and Integra® in preliminary observations of chronic wound management. AWBAT®-D Plus can be used as an adjunct with NPWT."
