Vomaris Innovations, Inc., a regenerative medical device company specializing in microcurrent field generating technologies for the wound care market, announced that eight scientific and clinical abstracts on its flagship product Procellera will be presented at the 26th Annual Symposium on Advanced Wound Care (SAWC) May 2 – 5, 2013 at the Denver Convention Center.
Procellera is the world’s first self-contained antimicrobial wound dressing with microbatteries at its surface. Indications for use include partial and full-thickness wounds such as pressure ulcers, venous ulcers, diabetic ulcers, burns, surgical incisions, donor and/or recipient graft sites.
“This robust collection of high-level scientific and clinical research from some of the best institutions around the country marks the achievement of a significant milestone for Procellera,” said Michael P. Nagel, Vomaris President and CEO. “We are thrilled to give the marketplace the evidence-based clinical outcomes needed to support wider use of our breakthrough product.”
One of the abstracts — “Improvement of Human Keratinocyte Migration by a Redox Active Bioelectric Dressing” by lead author Dr. Chandan Sen of Ohio State University — was selected along with three other abstracts as finalists in Excellence in Translational Regenerative Science, honoring investigators involved in cutting edge research fostering the development of cell-based and other therapies in wound healing and regenerative medicine toward clinical applicability. Dr. Sen will give a podium presentation at Session G on May 2, from 9:00 – 9:45am.
Two abstracts, “Evaluation of a Bioelectric Dressing as the Next Generation Wound Care Product in the Battlefield” and “Efficacy Testing of a Bioelectric Wound Dressing Against Clinical Wound Isolates” feature collaborative translational and laboratory research from Diagnostic & Translational Research Center, Walter Reed National Military Medical Center, Henry M. Jackson Foundation and the Combat Wound Initiative.
The remaining five abstracts feature a range of clinical research and case studies, including: “A Study to Demonstrate Efficacy of a Bioelectric Wound Care Dressing in Healing of Acute and Chronic Wounds within a Rehab Center Patient Population” and “Management of Traumatic Wounds with a Bioelectric Wound Dressing” from Bethany Health & Rehabilitation Center in Nashville, TN; “An Innovative Bioelectric Approach to Recalcitrant Wounds” and “Clinical Experience with a Bioelectric Wound Dressing as a Primary and Adjunctive Treatment Method” from Jackson-Madison County General Hospital in Jackson, TN; and “Improved Healing Outcomes with a Bioelectric Wound Dressing” from Grant Wound Care & Hyperbaric Services in Columbus, OH.
The SAWC is the largest annual gathering of scientists and clinicians in the wound care field in the United States and is a platform for linking scientists and clinicians to advance wound-healing research. Procellera will be showcased at booth #1035 at the SAWC.
