Adtec SteriPlas for the treatment of deep sternal wound infections and infected drivelines

The Adtec SteriPlas has already been well documented for the treatment of deep sternal wound infections and infected drivelines. Separate studies from two leading hospitals in Germany (University Hospital Munster and University Hospital Heidelberg) have recorded the strong efficacy of our cold plasma treatment on these problematic conditions. Due to the original difficulty of managing these chronic infections using standard therapies along with the high rate of morbidity and mortality, it is no wonder why the Adtec SteriPlas has been chosen as the preferred treatment method.

 

You can read more about its story in the latest addition of the Chirurgische Allgemeine magazine: eSD_AdTecPlasma

 


SteriPlas cold plasma successful at killing multi-resistant bacteria

Our animation video shows how bacteria are easily destroyed using our patented cold plasma technology. The components of cold plasma work collectively to target bacteria and physically rupture the structure, allowing micropores to be created which gains access to the microbial DNA to be destroyed. This effectively kills bacteria, even if they are protected within biofilm.

New SteriPlas version and change in device Classification

Due to our proven clinical success in treating non-healing and challenging wounds, we are proud to announce the upgrade of our medical device classification to Class IIb for the Adtec SteriPlas .

This change in medical device classification also supports its continued use for treating chronic and deep wounds and surgical site infections and for treating dermatological conditions.

We also announce the product launch of a new version of our SteriPlas Version 2 model in our Cold Plasma medical device family delivering the same performance. We are very proud of the safety of our devices with no incidents or adverse events reported in 15 years of use.


SteriPlas treatment for Acne Vulgaris

We are excited to announce the recent publication, “Cold atmospheric plasma (CAP) as a promising therapeutic option for mild to moderate acne vulgaris” which features our Adtec SteriPlas cold plasma for the treatment of acne.

 

The paper created by Dr Mariachiara Arisi from the Department of Dermatology at the University of Brescia, Italy demonstrates the antibacterial efficacy of our patented cold plasma for the treatment of acne vulgaris patients. It indicates the significant reduction of acne skin lesions in treated patients who were previously unsuccessful treated with topical drugs. Unlike topical drugs, the Adtec SteriPlas demonstrated a safe, effective, and well-tolerated treatment option with no side effects for the treatment of acne patients.

 

No adverse effects or skin reactions were reported either during the treatment nor at 3-months follow-up. Treatment was completely painless and well tolerated. Patients did not report itching or burning sensation during plasma application and in the following days.

Adtec Healthcare celebrates yet another RCT publication

 

Adtec Healthcare celebrates another prospective, randomized and placebo-controlled trial (RCT) publication featuring our cold plasma medical device for the treatment of chronic wounds. The clinical trial conducted at the Essen University Medical Center in Germany and led by Professor Joachim Dissemond discusses the strong benefit of using the Adtec SteriPlas to treat chronic wounds. This is our first RCT measuring wound healing rates with respect to overall wound size using cold plasma.

The study consisting of three groups (Group 1 - plasma 1x/week, Group 2- plasma 3x/week and Group 3 - placebo 1x/week) shows the significant wound size reduction when using cold plasma vs placebo. Not surprisingly, Groups 1 and 2 led an astonishing 63.0% and 46.8% reduction in wound size for chronic wound patients, whereas Group 3 (placebo-treated) patients had increased in wound size by 17.5% larger.

The full publication can be viewed here: https://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/epdf/10.1111/ddg.14294

The rich data of the RCT further demonstrates why our cold plasma medical device, the Adtec SteriPlas, continues to lead the way for cold plasma medicine by accelerating healing in non-healing and problematic wounds with the strong advantage of no side effects. The use of the Adtec SteriPlas is simple – a quick supplement to your standard treatment program for your patients.

Leading cold plasma medical device

 

The Adtec SteriPlas is the leading cold plasma medical device used to manage the infection in chronic wounds, surgical site infections and to treat dermatological conditions such as acne and actinic keratoses.

 

With our wide clinical trials and publications bibliography, we are proud to state its strong antibacterial efficacy regardless of the type of bacteria or its resistance profile. There have been no side effects reported with the use of our medical device since it is safe, painless to touch and an effective method of treating patients from conventional therapies.


New Actinic Keratoses clinical trial publication release

Congratulations Professor Alexander Rösch and his team at the Department of Dermatology at the University Hospital Essen for their recent clinical trial publication. The study “Efficacy of cold atmospheric plasma versus diclofenac 3% gel in patients with actinic keratoses: a prospective,  randomized, and rater-blinded study (ACTICAP)” can be found here.

Their clinical trial began in 2017 and its purpose was to test the efficacy of our medical device, the Adtec SteriPlas on actinic keratoses patients in comparison to those treated with Diclofenac 3% gel. The clinical efficacy of this modality is comparable to that of Diclofenac gel. However, unlike Diclofenac, cold atmospheric plasma showed no major side effects. Thus, this modality might be especially well-suited for patients who require nontoxic treatment options, particularly immunocompromised patients and those with extensive field cancerization. This continues to be one of our strongest and most favoured characteristics of the Adtec SteriPlas: no side effects.

We encourage you to read the clinical trial publication and welcome any questions that you have.

Adtec Healthcare's new project with Hull York Medical School testing gas plasma on Osteomyelitis bone infections.

 

We are excited to announce the study “Gas Plasma for the Prevention and Management of Osteomyelitis Biofilms” has now begun at the Hull York Medical School. The study led by Dr Angela Oates and funded by the National Biofilms Innovation Centre will seek to test the efficacy of our gas plasma system on osteomyelitis bone infections using our PlasmaTact device. This project will develop a novel laboratory testing model to evaluate and optimise plasma treatment for osteomyelitis biofilm infections.

 

 

We have already demonstrated that our gas plasma medical device, the Adtec SteriPlas, has proven antibacterial efficacy and accelerated healing in problematic and non-healing wounds with strong evidence collected from our extensive library of clinical trials and publications. This includes diabetic foot ulcers which are often complicated by biofilm. Over the course of its existence it has shown that no side effects have been reported which offers patients a safe and reliable treatment option. It has also shown that a 2-minute treatment time is sufficient to achieve exceptional results and that it is also a broad spectrum antibacterial with the ability to kill a wide range of Gram-negative and Gram-positive bacterial superinfections.

 

The PlasmaTact utilizes the same gas plasma technology from the Adtec SteriPlas. The main difference between the two devices is that the PlasmaTact offers a smaller handheld style treatment area of 1cm2 (vs 12cm2 with the SteriPlas) and offers users the ability to change the power output settings (vs the fixed settings with the SteriPlas).

 

Osteomyelitis (OM) is biofilm infection of the bone and is a common and costly complication in diabetic foot ulcer (DFU) patients often resulting in amputations. Long-term antimicrobial therapy is widely used as a primary treatment for OM or as an adjunct to surgical approaches however, there is a failure rate of up to 35% and an associated increasing prevalence of antimicrobial resistance. There is an urgent clinical need to develop alternative non-antimicrobial approaches to treat infections, and currently there is a lack of credible alternatives in the market for the treatment of OM.

 

Evaluating the efficacy of gas plasma in OM represents unique challenges as both the biofilm growth and physical characteristics of OM bone will affect the delivery and activity of the plasma. In vitro biofilm model systems offer a means by which rapid, costs effective and standardised evaluation of anti-biofilm treatments can be undertaken.

 

The PATROL project is a new and exciting collaborative project between Adtec Healthcare and Dr Angela Oates of the University of Hull Wound Healing Group which is supported by NBIC PoC Award. The overall aim of this project is to develop an osteomyelitis biofilm infection model to support the optimisation and evaluation of a cold plasma technology for the management and prevention of OM.

 

This collaborative project represents the first phase of the novel utilisation of Adtec SteriPlas to treat OM or as an adjunct current therapy. Successful translation of this technology to treat OM will reduce antimicrobial usage and associated OM amputations, reducing NHS costs and ultimately improving patient outcomes.
