The principal author on the poster titled, “Altrazeal™, A Transforming Powder Wound Dressing: The Clinical Experience” (poster #153) is Dr. Jeffrey A. Niezgoda, M.D., FACHM, FAPWCA, Director of the Centers for Comprehensive Wound Care and Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy, Aurora Health Care. Several case studies are presented to illustrate the dynamic clinical benefits of this novel technology. The early clinical experience demonstrates excellent patient toleration and improved wound healing. Additional benefits include ease of application and a reduction in dressing changes with or without a secondary dressing.
The second poster (poster #154) is titled “The Design and Performance of Nanoflex™ Transforming Powder Dressing: A Novel Wound Care Management System”. John V. St. John, Ph.D., Vice President of Material Science at ULURU Inc. and a co-inventor of this proprietary technology is the principal author of this poster which describes the physical properties of the dressing, pre-clinical data and a patient case study. The design features of Altrazeal™, which are unique to this material, including the high moisture vapor transpiration rate, fluid uptake and material strength are presented on this poster.
Altrazeal™, a transforming powder dressing, which is produced using our Nanoflex™ Technology, is a breakthrough new treatment for exuding wounds including burns, trauma, skin graft donor sites, surgical wounds and chronic slow-healing wounds such as diabetic foot ulcers, pressure ulcers and venous ulcers. Altrazeal™ is designed to provide greater effectiveness in wound closure by promoting an optimal moist wound healing environment. Altrazeal™ provides additional patient benefits including reduced pain and enhanced patient comfort, ease of application and removal and in most cases it does not require a secondary dressing.
Dr. Jeffery Niezgoda stated, “I am very pleased to be the first to present clinical data on this revolutionary new technology. My early clinical experience with Altrazeal™ has produced exceptional results with improved wound healing trajectories. Clinical success has been achieved in a series of patients with a variety of wound types and I look forward to presenting this exciting data.”
