Why PuraPly® Antimicrobial?
It is estimated that biofilm, the polymeric film that makes it difficult to eliminate pathogens,1 is present in 60% of chronic wounds.2 Topical antimicrobials, such as some silver preparations, have demonstrated cytotoxic effects associated with delayed healing,3,4 whereas PuraPly Antimicrobial utilizes PHMB,5 a noncytotoxic antimicrobial substance known to inhibit the formation of biofilm on the wound surface.6

PuraPly Antimicrobial Demonstrated Substantial Reduction in Biofilm-Associated Bacteria in Preliminary Study7
PuraPly Antimicrobial substantially reduced MRSA as compared to PriMatrix® Ag and Endoform™—as early as 2 days after initial medical intervention.7 View the data from the preliminary study.
