STERILE HUMAN AMNION CHORION AND PHMB POWDER

Each g of AmchoPlast FLOTM contains 2% of Sterile Dehydrated Human Amnion Chorion and 0.5% Polyhexamethylenebiguanide (PHMB).

Product Overview

It is micronised particulate dehydrated human amnion chorion membrane impregnated with 0.5% (w/w) broad-spectrum antimicrobial biocide, polyhexamethylene biguanide (PHMB). It is first of its kind with distinctive, advanced healing properties of both human amniotic membrane and PHMB. In addition, micronised amniotic membrane creates an ideal microenvironment and provides larger surface area for cell adhesion and proliferation.

Frequently Asked Questions

Any wound that fails to respond to treatment even after four weeks or remains unhealed entirely in two months is regarded as a chronic wound. A chronic wound is often found to be further complicated due to underlying conditions like diabetes, circulation problems etc. due to the interruption of the body’s natural healing process. Some of the common chronic wound conditions include diabetic foot ulcers, venous ulcers, surgical site injuries, burn injuries and pressure ulcers.

Chronic, non-healing wounds can be debilitating for the affected individual and its management has become a major therapeutic challenge throughout the world. At present, moist dressings, debridement, infection control, and wound offloading are standard therapies to treat diabetic ulcers.

Antibiotics often fail to ‘cure’ an ulcer, although this might be because the systemic and/or topical delivery of antibiotics fails to reach the microbes owing to poor circulation and/or biofilm barriers.

Advanced therapies, such as bioengineered skin grafts, have been shown to accelerate wound closure, thereby resulting in a more consistent and faster wound healing compared with standard treatments.

Prior to donation, the donor’s medical and social history are screened for medical conditions or diseases that would contraindicate the donation of tissues in accordance with current policies and procedures approved by LifeCell. Donor blood samples taken at the time of collection are tested negative/non -reactive for relevant communicable and infectious disease agents at LifeCell International, which has requisite national and/or international accreditations.
