Areas of use
Xelma is indicated for hard to heal wounds e.g. venous leg ulcers, diabetic foot ulcers and pressure ulcers.
Xelma is intended for topical application and should be covered by a secondary dressing such as Mepitel®, Mepilex® or Mepilex® Border and applied to the wound surface once weekly. If no improvement is observed within 6 weeks the treatment is to be reassessed.
How Xelma works
When applied to the wound bed Xelma provides a temporary extracellular matrix protein for cell attachment. This creates favourable conditions for wound healing by restoring vital cell functions including proliferation, migration, and production of growth factors and essential extracellular matrix components. Restoration of the cellular and biochemical balance is facilitated in the hard-to-heal wound, which will promote wound healing.
