MEDIHONEY(TM) Dressings Shown to Help Improve Outcomes of Non-Healing Venous Leg Ulcers in Recent Case Series
Date:2/13/2009

Eleven of eleven wounds healed in 6 weeks or less

PRINCETON, N.J., Feb. 13 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Derma Sciences, Inc. (OTC Bulletin Board: DSCI), a provider of advanced wound care products, announced today that its MEDIHONEY Dressings were the focus of a case series on eleven non-healing venous leg ulcers. These wounds had previously failed to heal while being managed with such therapeutic modalities as multi-layered compression, silver antimicrobial dressings, antibiotic therapy, and hyperbaric oxygen. Six of the wounds completely healed within 4 weeks, and all eleven wounds healed within 6 weeks. The typical duration for wound healing studies having complete closure as the endpoint is 12 weeks. The case series, "Topical Leptospermum Honey (MEDIHONEY) in Recalcitrant Venous Leg Wounds: A Preliminary Case Series" was published in the February edition of Advances in Skin & Wound Care, a peer-reviewed and Medline-indexed journal.

Speaking about the case series, Derma Sciences' CEO Ed Quilty stated, "The body of evidence supporting the use of MEDIHONEY - particularly in non-healing venous leg ulcers - continues to grow. This case series validates the randomized controlled study published several months ago which showed that the addition of MEDIHONEY under compression helped to improve healing in these very difficult to heal leg ulcers. Leg ulcers are very burdensome for patients and their families, are painful, and recur often. With the evidence that has been accumulated for this patient population, MEDIHONEY is gaining traction on formularies as the lead dressing when wounds do not heal within 3-4 weeks of treatment with basic standard wound dressings. As was the case with the recent patient profile coming out of North Shore Long Island Jewish Hosp
