Wednesday, November 18th, 2009


PuriCore announced results of a randomized clinical trial showing the potential effectiveness of its Vashe Wound Therapy in the post-operative care of split-thickness skin grafts for burn injuries. Vashe Wound Therapy is an FDA-cleared medical device used for moistening, irrigating, cleaning, and debriding acute and chronic wounds including stage I through IV pressure ulcers, stasis ulcers, diabetic ulcers, post-surgical wounds, first and second degree burns, abrasions, and minor irritations of the skin. Vashe Wound Therapy is a medical device that produces a biocompatible solution to enhance the clinical management of acute and chronic wounds and has been used successfully and without report of adverse events in more than 100,000 wound treatments. It is designed to be a safe, effective and economical alternative to commonly used wound irrigating solutions that inhibit wound healing.
