Ekkyo Describes the First Benefits of Controlled Hyperthermia in Humans in "Lasers in Surgery and Medicine"
Date:7/22/2008

A Pilot Study Suggests That Ekkyo's New Approach of LASH (Laser Assisted

Scar Healing) can Drastically Improve Scar Healing Physiology

MARSEILLES, France, July 22 /PRNewswire/ -- Ekkyo (formerly known as Heatwave Technology) a photomedicine company, which develops first-in-class laser-based systems for skin scar prevention and reduction, announced today the publication of a scientific article in Lasers in Surgery and Medicine* reporting the results of a pilot study on cutaneous scar prevention by LASH.

Based on the therapeutic effects of controlled selective hyperthermia, Ekkyo's approach aims to stimulate the natural repair mechanisms of the skin, initiated at the critical moment of wound closure (ie the thrombotic phase). This innovative approach was validated in animals by a proof of concept study performed using an 810 nm laser diode system that showed its ability to speed up the healing process and avoid visible marks of the wounds (Capon, Souil et al. 2001 Lasers Surg Med. 2001;28(2):168-75).

To demonstrate the relevance of this approach in humans, a pilot** clinical trial, focused on abdominoplasty, was carried out at the Lille University Hospital Center (in September 2006 - December 2007). Conducted by Dr. Alexandre Capon, plastic surgeon, the aim of the study was twofold: evaluating the safety, as well as the therapeutic and cosmetic benefits of a treatment by an 810 nm laser diode. This is the base for the handheld laser Ekkylite(TM) the very first Laser Assisted Scar Healing system using a "smart" safety device in charge of recognizing, setting up and defining the parameters of the laser during treatment.

"The results of this study are very encouraging; they validate our approach from the view point of safety and efficacy in a difficult clinical context of abdominal plasty that usually leaves unsightly long scars ; they impact patients self esteem and decrease the benefits of the surgical intervention," comments D
