FORT WORTH, TX / ACCESSWIRE / July 16, 2019 / Sanara MedTech Inc. (OTCQB: SMTI) Based in Fort Worth, Texas, Sanara MedTech Inc. (“Sanara” or the “Company”), a provider of surgical and chronic wound care products dedicated to improving patient outcomes, today announced that BIAKŌS™ Antimicrobial Skin and Wound Cleanser (“BIAKŌS”) is now available for distribution.
Sanara focuses on developing and commercializing products in the areas of skin and wound care, including biofilm management. Over 90% of chronic wounds contain polymicrobial biofilms which can have a significant impact on wound healing, by contributing to bacterial infection, inflammation, and delayed wound healing. Biofilm management is a critical step in the wound healing process and effective antimicrobial products must be able to target a wide variety of microorganisms while being safe and gentle.
BIAKŌS is an FDA-cleared and patented composition that effectively disrupts extracellular polymeric substances to eradicate biofilm microbes. BIAKŌS is intended for mechanical removal of debris, dirt, foreign materials, and microorganisms from wounds including stage I-IV pressure ulcers, diabetic foot ulcers, post-surgical wounds, first and second-degree burns as well as grafted and donor sites. BIAKŌS is effective in killing free-floating microbes, immature, and mature bacterial biofilms such as MRSA and Pseudomonas aeruginosa, and fungal biofilms such as Candida albicans. In addition, BIAKŌS safety studies show that it is non-cytotoxic, non-irritating, and non-sensitizing to healthy skin and assists in the normal wound healing process.
The Company is encouraged by the results of over twenty wound care clinicians using combination treatments of BIAKŌS and HYCOL™ Hydrolyzed Collagen on in excess of 100 patients with chronic wounds. The following quote from a South Central general surgeon that specializes in wound care sums of the feedback from many: “having the ability to manage biofilm/bioburden while simultaneously facilitating granulation tissue helps to provide an advantageous wound healing environment.”
