How many wounds heal with current standard-of-care?

The UK National Health Service (NHS) has a database containing 11 million patient records from 550 general practices (primary care) in the UK and studies have shown that this database is representative of the UK in general. As the UK healthcare system is not substantially different to other countries with a well-funded healthcare system, the data will…

Why is impaired wound healing common to diabetes, spinal cord injury and multiple sclerosis?

A simple scratch on the foot in a person with diabetes or to the skin in a person with spinal cord injury (SCI) or multiple sclerosis (MS) can develop into a large wound that gradually spreads under the skin leading to osteomyelitis (bone infection) and sinus tract formation, i.e. bacteria and fungi boring tunnels into the tissue…

How antiseptics and disinfectants make you resistant to antibiotics.

It has always been assumed that antimicrobial resistance would only develop in response to the use of antibiotics, but newer data suggest that antiseptics, disinfectants and other antibacterial approaches are even worse at creating resistance. Data namely indicate that these chemicals cause the bacteria to become tolerant or resistant not only to a specific antiseptic or disinfectant,…

Does Acapsil contribute to the creation of antibiotic resistant bacterial strains?

No. MPPT is not an antibiotic and it does not have any direct antimicrobial action – it does not kill the bacteria. Bacteria have two main defence mechanisms by which they fight off the body’s immune cells: Toxins and biofilm. MPPT removes the toxins when it absorbs the exudate thereby preventing these from attacking the immune cells;…

Can wounds with antibiotic resistant infections benefit from MPPT?

Yes. MPPT has assisted in clearing up antibiotic resistant infections. MPPT is not an antibiotic but instead allows the body’s own immune system access to the bacteria enabling the immune cells to fight back via many different routes. MPPT will not contribute to the creation of antibiotic resistance.
