Breakthrough in treatment of burn injuries

As a Bellevue personal injury attorney representing patients who have suffered serious burn injuries, we are happy to see a breakthrough in the treatment of burn injuries.

A new burn wound dressing promises to help wounds heal up to 40% faster than other dressings. Developed in New Zealand by Dr. Azam Ali, the new dressing is bio-based and uses materials low-volume protein sources from New Zealand sheep wool and it accelerates wound healing and tissue growth.

The new dressing could greatly help people who have severe burn injuries due to acid or fire.

A winner of the Bayer Innovation of the Year Award in 2010, the new product is especially valuable in the developing world where ra materials would allow for lower cost manufacturing.

Congratulations to Dr. Azam Ali whose research on utilizing and re-engineering bio-based materials provides hope and healing to burn victims. With more than one million burn injuries every year in the United States and thousands occurring in Washington state, fire and burn injuries are the firth leading cause of accidental or preventable death.
