How does it work?

PROMOGRAN provides Optimal wound healing, Published RCTs, Cost effective

Optmum wound environment

PROMOGRAN maintains a physiologically moist microenvironment at the
wound surface. This environment is conducive to granulation tissue formation,
epithelization and rapid wound healing.

Clinically proven

Several RCTs have demonstrated that PROMOGRAN achieved superior
results versus standard of care in chronic wounds1-4.
Theefficacy of collagen/ORC is supported by a large body of clinical evidence,
including 9 published RCTs1-8,16,17.


An additional retrospective study analyzing costeffectiveness
in the management of neuropathic DFU (n=40), showed that wound
management with PROMOGRAN was more cost-effective per patient
over 6 weeks of treatment as compared to standard care (Control)18.
