Bristol, PA (PRWEB) December 04, 2014
Gentell, Inc. (http://www.gentell.com), a leading manufacturer of wound and skin care products, recently announced the introduction of four new collagen products designed to treat chronic, non-healing wounds. Gentell Collagen, a product derived from bovine collagen, is now available in a powdery particle form 1g bottle, or as dressing sheets in 2” x 2”, 4” x 5.25”, and 8” x 12”sizes, for the treatment of aggressive wounds.
Collagen reduces high levels of matrix metalloproteases (MMPs) that break down connective tissue, allowing for increased speed in wound healing. The particle format of collagen lends a greater degree of maneuverability, enabling easier application to a wound area that may have an unusual shape or gash.
In recent applications, Gentell Collagen has demonstrated itself to be effective as a primary dressing for chronic, non-healing wounds; wounds with minimal to heavy exudate; partial- or full-thickness; granulating or necrotic; or second-degree burns.
“This is a proactive approach to wound healing,” noted Gentell Executive Vice President David A. Navazio. “Healthcare providers have regularly commented on the effectiveness of collagen in treating aggressive wounds. Because collagen is a type of material found in our bodies, it readily binds with cellular components to promote optimum healing, creating a latticework for cells to grow on.”
Marie De La Torre, LVN, WCC, DWC, a nurse and wound consultant, recommended Gentell Collagen Particles for a patient in which drainage was not sufficiently being captured. Within two months of its initial use, the wound was 99 percent healed and the patient’s progress had exceeded the doctor’s expectations. “I thought the Gentell Collagen was quite effective,” De La Torre says. “The wound healed more quickly and completely than expected.”
