EVER CONSIDERED MEDICAL TREATMENT?

 
Diabetes is a disease that has a wide variety of complications. One of these is a condition called the diabetic foot which is the result of the two common complications of diabetes: reduced blood flow and nerve damage. While nerve damage results in diminished sensation in the feet, reduced blood flow results in the formation of cracks in the skin that allow bacteria to enter and cause an infection.

GET THE RIGHT TREATMENT

People who have been diagnosed with diabetic foot require antibiotics to control the infection. If the infection can no longer be controlled, the affected foot will be amputated to prevent the infection from spreading to the rest of the body.
 

Treatment with Heberprot in Cuba
Heberprot-P® is a novel and unique medicine indicated for diabetic foot ulcertreatment (DFU). This innovative product contains epithermal growth factor (EGF) as active pharmaceutical ingredient (APhI) to be applied by intra-lesional infiltration directly in the wound site. The therapy with Heberprot-P® fills the gap of an urgent unmet medical need for the treatment of complex DFU. There is a growing interest on the use of growing factors for treatment of DFUs. Therefore, a research program has been developed at the Center for Genetic Engineering and Biotechnology (CIGB), Havana, Cuba, from the 90s to study the biological effects of repeated parentheral application of human recombinant epithermal growth factor (hr-EGF) in wounds.

Characteristics and advantages of the treatment with Heberprot-P®
• Accelerates healing of deep and complex DFU.
• Reduces amputation risk in DFU patients. 3 weeks of treatment have been enough to observe granulation in more than 80% of DFU patients with wound areas between 1 and 80 cm2.
• Constitutes a significant contribution to improve the patient’s life condition, since it reduces the number and extension of surgical debridement or removal of necrotic tissue, and prevents recidives.
• Reduces the healing time, diabetes related complications such as gangrene, and infections, allowing re-positioning of medical resources to patients with a poorer prognosis.
