On Sunday, November 5, 2023 from 9:10 A.M. EST – 11:20 A.M. EST, AC5 will be featured in the Advanced Wound Care Therapy for the Lower Extremity: Hands-On Skills Lab. In this demonstration workshop, attending clinicians will be provided both hands-on experience with AC5 and an opportunity to learn about its mechanism, preparation, application, and utility in various wound types.

Arch’s commercial team and senior medical science liaison will be available for discussions with clinicians throughout the symposium and at Arch’s booth (#332) in the exhibit hall.

Terrence W. Norchi, MD, President and CEO of Arch Therapeutics said, “SAWC presents an important opportunity to showcase our proprietary self-assembling peptide technology to wound care providers. The case study highlights yet another person with a challenging wound that responded to AC5 after repeated and prolonged failure of other treatment regimens, while the skills lab demonstrations will give wound care providers a chance to learn more about AC5 as they apply it to simulated wounds. AC5 represents a new, user-friendly, versatile, and safe treatment option for clinicians who manage a broad array of challenging wounds among patients with wide-ranging co-morbidities.”
