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.

Case Study – The use of hypochlorous acid in an irradiation ulcer of the lower eyelid (Nov 2021)

Radiation therapy represents an important cornerstone in the treatment of numerous cancers, as evidenced by the fact that approximately 50% of patients with cancer will receive this form of treatment. In 95% of these individuals, radiation therapy causes some form of skin injury as high doses of radiation causes significant harm to healthy tissue and skin. Management of injuries due to ionising radiation is challenging, with injuries ranging from acute redness to full ulceration of the skin. This can cause considerable anxiety and discomfort to patients. This case study explores the use of hypochlorous acid (HOCl) in the treatment of acute radiation injury of the lower eyelid skin.
