Highlights Broad Clinical Benefits of AC5® Technology and Use in Managing Biofilm Infected Wounds
FRAMINGHAM, Mass., Nov. 01, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Arch Therapeutics, Inc. (OTCQB: ARTH) (“Arch” or the “Company”), a marketer and developer of novel self-assembling wound care and biosurgical devices, presented at the Symposium on Advanced Wound Care (SAWC) during the “Innovation Spotlight: Shining a Light on Bold Ideas in Wound Care” session on October 31, 2021.
The presentation, led by Terrence W. Norchi, MD, Founder and CEO of Arch and key opinion leader, Randall Wolcott, MD, Founder of the Southwest Regional Wound Care Center, focused on the use of AC5® Advanced Wound System in chronic and non-healing wounds. Key points of note included the clinical advantages of the AC5® technology platform and the potential for AC5® Advanced Wound System to support optimal debridement and manage the challenges associated with biofilm infected wounds.
Dr. Wolcott stated, “AC5® Advanced Wound System contains a unique self-assembling technology that offers a different mode of action. It builds a barrier and a scaffold on host tissue, complements other therapies, and in my experience, can improve wound healing outcomes. Chronic wounds are chronic infections, and biofilm plays a significant role in perpetuating that cycle and interfering with wound healing. I have used AC5® to enable more aggressive debridement to remove biofilm and prevent its subsequent formation.”
Daniel C. Wadsworth, VP of Dermal Sciences of Arch, said, “We are honored to have world-renowned key opinion leaders like Dr. Wolcott discussing clinical use and contributing to our growing body of data on the effectiveness of AC5® Advanced Wound System.”
The Symposium on Advanced Wound Care (SAWC) is the largest gathering of multidisciplinary wound care clinicians in the United States. Continuing education credits are offered for physicians, nurses, pharmacists, podiatrists, physical therapists, and dieticians.
