Medira products in the news

Medira's wound healing products have recently made the news thanks to positive patient feedback plus an interest in the technology behind the products.

An interesting article in Newsweek by Christopher Middleton, discusses the history and uses of fish collagen, up to its current use in Medira's Helisorb and Neuskin products

Another article in The Telegraph highlights some successes of Helisorb Particles in healing surgical wounds, and providing relief to Epidermolysis Bullosa (EB) sufferers:

Helisorb and Neuskin are seeing increased use in NHS specialty wound dressing clinics and in the private clinic sector, and we are working on adding the products to the NHS Drug Tariff which will greatly increase the availability of the products.

The NHS drive for efficiency means our collagen dressings can play an important role.  Proof of this is the number of patients who have contacted us since these articles were published, describing their distress at years of visits to NHS clinics with no healing occurring.  Interestingly, these are not wounds with known co-morbidities, they are simply stuck in a non-healing phase.

Medira's collagen dressings are so effective because they interact directly with the cellular sequence of events involved in wound healing; something that modern synthetic dressings do not.
