CADESORB PROTEAE OINTMENT - This starch based sterile ointment controls pH levels of its local environment and is designed to be used on wounds. It modulates protease activity, in addition to managing slough and exudate to stimulate the healing process. A typical wound has a pH level of about 7-8. CADESORB works by lowering this level to around 5 allowing protease activity levels to return to those of a healing wound. It also works removing slough and debris from the wound and managing fluid for up to 3 days.
