* Supportive care in the SANTYL Ointment group included ALLEVYN Foam Dressing, cast padding, and Coban™ bandages.

All patients agreed to wear an offloading boot or other appropriate device.

In a retrospective study, pressure ulcers treated with SANTYL Ointment were found to be:

38%

more likely than honey to achieve 100% granulation at one year (P=0.018)15*


47%

more likely than honey to epithelialize at one year (P=0.024)15†

Patients were treated (days of use) for an average of 34.0 days in the SANTYL Ointment group and 33.6 days in the medicinal honey group.15

* Granulation was defined as percentage of the wound bed with granulation tissue formed. One hundred percent granulation was defined as complete debridement of the wound bed.

Epithelialization was defined as a “controlled” or “improved and not worsening” wound bed lacking exudate, with wound area <0.2cm2, and tissue depth <0.1cm.

Compared to selective debridement* alone, SANTYL Ointment + selective debridement resulted in:

$375

savings per ulcer-free week†23


17.2

more weeks ulcer-free23

* Selective debridement was defined as sharp debridement using scissors, scalpels, or curettes.

Ulcer-free week was defined as each week the wound is closed in an epithelialized state.

* Supportive care in the SANTYL Ointment group included ALLEVYN Foam Dressing, cast padding, and Coban or equivalent bandages.

All subjects underwent sharp debridement prior to the application of the assigned test article and as medically necessary at any of the scheduled study visits.

Product containing silver was the investigator’s choice and was applied according to site procedures and the specific product’s Instructions for Use.

§ Supportive care in the control group was the clinician’s choice.

Patient case studies

Important Safety Information:Use of SANTYL Ointment should be terminated when debridement is complete and granulation tissue is well established.

One case of systemic hypersensitivity has been reported after 1 year of treatment with collagenase and cortisone. Occasional slight transient erythema has been noted in surrounding tissue when applied outside the wound.
