When

For Infected Chronic Diabetic Foot Ulcers

ChloraSolv has been evaluated on infected chronic diabetic foot ulcers in an open randomized controlled study where safety and tolerability were assessed as well as a beneficial outcome on wound size reduction and wound closure.

ChloraSolv treatment seems to be efficacious, particularly in the early phase of the care of infected diabetic foot ulcers.

There was an early onset of wound size reduction as well as wound healing within the first 7 weeks compared to standard treatment i.e. sharp debridement.

7 patients had completely closed wounds after 12 weeks compared to 3 in the standard treatment group.

What

Chemo-Mechanical Debridement with Antimicrobial Properties

ChloraSolv is based on a unique hypochlorite technology platform consisting of a two component system, a gel containing amino acids and a solution containing sodium hypochlorite. The components are mixed in situ forming a gel that is applied directly on the wound. The system is designed to provide both an alkaline and an oxidative environment time during the debridement while being non-irritant.

pH effect of ChloraSolv

The two components are mixed upon application onto the wound bed, generating a steep increase in pH that helps loosen up devitalized tissue3.

In vitro Antimicrobial effect of ChloraSolv

All of the tested microorganisms fulfil the acceptance criteria stated in Ph Eur 5.1.11 of a log10 reduction of at least 4 for mold and yeasts and at least 5 for bacteria2.

How

Easy to Use in Primary Care Settings and in Patients’ Home by Healthcare Professionals
  • ChloraSolv consists of two solutions provided in a double syringe. The solutions are mixed to form a gel at the time of use
  • The gel is applied on the wound bed and allowed to act for 2 minutes to soften the devitalized tissue
  • The devitalized tissue is then gently removed from the wound
  • The procedure is finished with a second application of the gel to completely clean the wound bed
  • A bandage/dressing is applied depending on the state of the wound
