Healthpoint Launches Collagenase SANTYL(R) Ointment in Canada
Date:1/26/2010

FORT WORTH, Texas and PETERBOROUGH, Ontario, Jan. 26 /PRNewswire/ -- Healthpoint today announced that it will begin marketing Collagenase SANTYL® Ointment to healthcare professionals in Canada. SANTYL® Ointment is a selective enzymatic agent indicated for debriding chronic dermal ulcers (e.g., pressure ulcers, vascular ulcers, and diabetic ulcers) and severely burned areas, and is now the only enzymatic debrider available in the Canadian market.

Enzymatic debridement refers to the use of certain enzymes (types of proteins) to liquefy necrotic (dead) tissue, thus allowing bioburden to be more easily removed from the wound. As the collagenase enzyme liquefies the collagen fibers within necrotic tissue, the cellular and fibrotic debris (i.e., "bioburden") loosen their connections from each other and the wound bed, so they more easily wash away during routine cleansing at each dressing change.

"Enzymatic debriding agents are particularly well suited for difficult-to-heal and chronic wounds, which have an ongoing tendency to accumulate substantial amounts of necrotic, fibrotic and cellular debris," commented Bert Slade, MD, FAAAAI, Chief Medical Officer at Healthpoint. "Because continuous deposition of this material can impede healing and increase infection risk if allowed to accumulate, the incorporation of a convenient enzymatic debriding ointment into treatment protocols can contribute to improved clinical and quality of life outcomes for Canadian patients."

Effective debridement to remove necrotic tissue, bacterial burden and the cellular debris of dead and abnormal cells is widely recognized as a critical first step in preparing a wound to heal. This consensus is supported by clinical studies that have shown that healing rates improve wi
