PuriCore Expands Vashe Wound Therapy Offering

PuriCore, a life sciences company that develops and commercializes proprietary, green solutions that are designed to kill infectious pathogens, announces the launch of its new bottled Vashe Wound Therapy, a safe, natural, and effective solution for wound care. Vashe Wound Therapy is a solution of hypochlorous acid, the same naturally occurring chemical used by the human body to defend against invading pathogens, and is used in wound care clinics and hospitals throughout the country for successful chronic and acute wound treatments. Vashe Wound Therapy is available in various pack sizes of 250- and now 500- ml bottles. A 125- ml bottled Vashe will be available soon.

Vashe Wound Therapy is intended for moistening, irrigating, cleaning, and debriding acute and chronic wounds including stage I through IV pressure ulcers, stasis ulcers, diabetic ulcers, post-surgical wounds, first- and second-degree burns, abrasions, and minor irritations of the skin. The hypochlorous acid in Vashe Wound Therapy is designed to kill 99.999 percent of MRSA, VRE, Acinetobacter baumannii, E.Coli, and other dangerous pathogens in solution in just 15 seconds in laboratory testing with no known microbial resistance.

Vashe Wound Therapy is demonstrated to be extremely safe, gentle, and hypoallergenic. It is tissue-friendly and can be applied directly to wounds even around eyes, mouth, and nose. Vashe has also been rigorously safety tested: it is non-cytotoxic, non-irritating, non-sensitizing, non-mutagenic, and indicates no oral toxicity. It also shows no antibiotic resistance and has no clinical contraindications for prescription use.

"We have used Vashe Wound Therapy in our clinic for several years and have realized excellent clinical outcomes on hundreds of patients with a wide variety of very difficult wounds," says Jeffrey A. Niezgoda, MD, FACHM, FACEP, FAPWCA, medical director of Hyperbaric & Wound Care Associates in Milwaukee, Wis. "Our staff and patients welcome the new bottled Vashe offering as a safe, efficacious, and easy-to-use therapy system for utilization in both the clinic and home setting."

"Vashe Wound Therapy is an exciting new alternative technology that demonstrates clinical efficacy for a variety of wounds including post-operative skin graft irrigation as we reported last year," says Kevin Foster, MD, MBA, FACS, co-director of the Arizona Burn Center at the Maricopa Medical Center in Phoenix. "This new packaging format will allow our patients to continue to use Vashe Wound Therapy at home and in other rehabilitation care settings for more effective post operative management of their burns and grafts."
