Case Study – The use of hypochlorous acid in the healing of a diabetic foot ulcer (Dec 2022)

These 2 case studies describe the successful treatment of diabetic foot ulcers (DFU) in two patients with Type 1 diabetes mellitus. HOCl is effective for multiple drug-resistant pathogens, is anti-biofilm and modulates inflammation, leading to healing. The protocol can be followed at home, saving patients both time and money, and improving compliance and quality of life.

What is Biofilm?

Biofilm formation has become a significant problem in the health industry. Research offers insight into understanding the processes involved in their formation, as well as methods to control their growth and spread. Biofilms may form on living or non-living surfaces and occur in natural, industrial and hospital settings.

Case Study – The use of hypochlorous acid in an infected burn wound (June 2021)

Here we describe an example of a non-healing, inflamed superficial to partial thickness burn wound that appeared to be associated with biofilm. Special reference to the relationship among biofilm, inflammation and non-healing of burn wounds is illustrated in the case study given. This case study also explores the use of hypochlorous acid (HOCl) in an infected burn wound.
