jwcawards2015-150x83The Journal of Wound Care (JWC), clinical journal expert in Wound healing, complimented once again Urgo Medical for its clinical investments: the EARTH study was greatly rewarded within the Best Clinical Research category!

 

24 experts from all over the world were judging the high standards set by clinical research in Wound Care Management. Through the EARTH study published in March 2014, the JWC are definitely “recognising innovation and excellence in clinical research”.

 

UrgoClean® presents better desloughing properties than Aquacel®, up to 50% higher, clinically proven in a large Randomized Controlled Trial*

 

The EARTH study is a RCT that compared UrgoClean® and Aquacel®, in the local management of venous or mixed leg ulcers predominantly of venous origin, at the debridement stage of the healing process.

 

The results confirmed that UrgoClean® is similar in terms of efficacy (healing properties) to the control dressing Aquacel®, after 6 weeks of treatment (surface area reduced respectively by 34.1% and 34.4%).

 

However, the autolytic debridement capacity of UrgoClean® is documented to be superior to that of Aquacel® (percentage of debrided wounds respectively 52.5% vs 35.1%).
