The world market for products to treat burn wounds is expected to surpass the $2 billion mark in the next few years, according to a study from Kalorama Information, New York, NY. Leading the growth in burn care are several market segments, including silver dressings and portions of the biologic dressings sector, both of which will display annual growth in excess of 20% through the end of the decade, the study says.

The study, Wound Care Markets, Volume II: Burns, examines 6 categories of products-anti-infectives, burn management products, moist dressings, biologic dressings, pressure-relief devices, and other treatments-and more than 10 subcategories, including cleansers, debridement products, silver dressings, alginates, films, foams, hydrocolloids, hydrogels, artificial skins, and collagen products.


The spray delivery system for ACCUZYME Spray (papain, urea) and PANAFIL Spray (papain, urea, and chlorophyllin copper complex sodium) has been recognized as a new medical technology by the Novation Wound Care Management Council, Irvine, TX. ACCUZYME and PANAFIL are products of HEALTHPOINT, Ltd, Fort Worth, TX.

The ACCUZYME Spray and PANAFIL Spray delivery system allows for fast and easy applications onto the wound bed without running or dripping so that clinicians can treat hard-to-reach areas with less waste. The spray form saves time and reduces trauma to wounds.
