PURACOL COLLAGEN DRESSINGS are manufactured to preserve collagen’s natural structure (nativity), resulting in dressings that provide more collagen to a wound for a longer period of time. One key factor of chronic wounds is an elevated level of matrix metalloproteinases (MMPs). At elevated levels, MMPs not only break down necrotic tissue, but also the necessary viable collagen produced during the wound healing process. This can lead to stalled wounds. Native collagen wound dressings can be used to manage chronic wounds. The addition of collagen to the wound bed may reduce excess MMP activity to promote the wound healing cycle.
