PuraPly® Antimicrobial Substantially Reduced MRSA as Compared to Other Products1
A preliminary study evaluated the ability of PuraPly Antimicrobial, PriMatrix® Ag, and Endoform™ to reduce the proliferation of biofilm-associated bacteria (MRSA USA300, a clinically virulent strain of Staphylococcus aureus) in a deep dermal porcine wound model.1 This was a preliminary study with a small sample size, so these observational results are not statistically powered conclusions.
Additional Key Findings1
- >98% reduction of MRSA counts compared to baseline
- >96% reduction of MRSA counts vs untreated controls on all assessment days
- Largest reduction of MRSA counts vs any of the other treatment groups
- The only treatment to substantially reduce bacterial load within 2 days

In Vitro Scientific Data
In a United States Pharmacopeia Antimicrobial Effectiveness Test, PuraPly Antimicrobial effectively reduced concentrations of Aspergillus niger, Candida albicans, Staphylococcus aureus, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, and Escherichia coli at days 7, 14, and 28.2
