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
