NICE and Cochrane recommendations for the treatment of pressure ulcers

The aim of this review was to identify which treatment approach for pressure ulcers that currently are recommended by the National Institute for Clinical Excellence (NICE) guidelines and the latest Cochrane reviews on dressings, topical treatments and NPWT (a pump using vacuum to remove wound exudate) for pressure ulcers. The key statements and conclusions have been included…

Pilot study: Evaluation of ease-of-use of Acapsil as first-line treatment for active Hidradenitis Suppurativa lesions

We, Willingsford, are recruiting volunteers with active HS lesions. The aim of the evaluation is to optimise the ease-of-use of Acapsil as first-line treatment of active Hidradenitis Suppurativa lesions without sinus tracts.   Purpose The overall purpose of the study is to determine how to optimally use Acapsil (micropore-particle-technology) as first-line treatment of active lesions in Hidradenitis…

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,…

Chair of the WHO Antimicrobial Resistance (AMR) group

Publication shows that MPPT acts as a passive immunotherapy that interacts with the microbiome and calls for a paradigm shift in the treatment of wounds and ulcers (Sams-Dodd et al. 2018). In response to these findings, Executive Board member of the World Health Organization (WHO), and chair of the WHO Strategic and Technical Advisory Group on Anti-Microbial-Resistance,…

Bite wounds as an example why trauma wounds are “different”

Bite wounds constitute an example of trauma wounds at high risk of “truly pathogenic infections” and care should be taken to initially rinse with antiseptics (preferably hydrogen peroxide), supply systemic antibiotics and combine with MPPT topically. This will assure that the potential infection is being fought both from the “inside” and the “outside”. Bite wounds are caused…

Can MPPT (Aprobaxil) help my Hidradenitis Suppurativa?

The exact underlying cause of HS is unknown, but both genetic and environmental factors seem to be involved. Recently it has been established that HS is associated with an unusually reduced microbiome. The biofilm in HS affected areas is thinner than usual and it contains fewer bacteria1 and the composition of microbes shows differences to what is…

How should the wound be cleaned before the first MPPT application?

In general, water is the best medium for wound cleaning. It removes large parts of slough and hence undesirable microbes effectively; in particular if it is applied with the pressure that can be achieved by using a wash-bottle or a large syringe. If a large contusion zone or extensive amounts of slough are present in the wound…

Water is preferable for wound cleaning… but – Why can hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) be useful in some cases?

It is to be recognised that some wounds have a contusion zone consisting of tissue balancing on the edge between being viable (being able to live) and unviable and therefore destined to die off sooner or later. It is preferable to get rid of the unviable tissue as early in the wound healing process as possible as…
