Exciting new methods for treating, cleaning, sealing and healing wounds of all types are constantly being developed in Israel and introduced to the global healthcare community.

Here ISRAEL21c presents 11 of the most innovative and useful wound-care products recently introduced to the market or in advanced clinical-trial stages. We’ve listed them in alphabetical order.

1. Aid-Tec

Aid-Tec smart bandages

This smart adhesive bandage, recently approved by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA), has a patented breakable capsule that releases a multi-compound therapeutic substance onto the sterile pad. The line of waterproof bandages offers varieties that come with an anticoagulant, an antibiotic, an antifungal, a wart remover or a corn remover. The company, based in Ramat Gan and in New Jersey, manufactures and sells the bandages in the United States.

2. BioWeld1

BioWeld1 seals incisions with cold plasma

IonMed developed this unique device to seal surgical incisions using cold plasma gas. Ionized particles in plasma have been shown to weld human tissue in a way that causes little or no scarring, controls bleeding, enhances tissue repair, disinfects and even kills cancer cells. The product is close to market and will likely be marketed first as an alternative for Cesarean section incisions.

3. CureXcell

Macrocure, one of six Israeli companies that had a Wall Street IPO last summer, developed CureXcell as a therapy for treating severe wounds using white blood cells from donor blood. Clinical trials have shown CureXcell results in a 90 percent reduction in infections among patients with deep wounds. Currently for sale only in Israel, CureXcell is expected to be manufactured and marketed in the United States following advanced clinical trials.
