Smith & Nephew PLC recently welcomed the publication of the Wound Biofilm Expert Panel’s recent paper into the detection and treatment of wound biofilm.

Biofilms are clusters of bacteria that, when present in chronic wounds, are linked to delayed healing, and are resistant to antimicrobial treatments.

Smith & Nephew highlighted its Iodosorb and Iodoflex dressings have been shown to be effective against biofilm in the laboratory, and in the clinical setting have an impact on biofilm in diabetic foot ulcers.

The Wound Export Panel is funded by an education grant from Smith & Nephew, and was formed in late 2015 to improve the understanding of biofilms and recommend improved clinical practice.

“Biofilm is a hot topic in wound care. There was a need for a consensus to bring clarity and guidance to healthcare professionals working to restore the quality of life of millions of patients around the world with non-healing chronic wounds,” said Andy Weymann, chief medical officer of Smith & Nephew.

“Smith & Nephew is proud to support healthcare professionals through the development of both educational resources and advanced wound management products,” Weymann said.
