Principle

Leg ulcers, pressure ulcers and diabetic foot ulcers are common wound types and part of the day-to-day reality for healthcare professionals. In response to this problem, Urgo has developed the UrgoStart range which is clinically proven to accelerate the wound-healing process, once the wound is clean and prepared for healing.

 

Mode of action

TLC (Technology Lipido-Colloid) combined with NOSF (Nano-Oligo Saccharide Factor) is a patented innovative technology which in contact with wound exudate forms a gel and creates a moist environment enabling the key cells involved in the repair process (fibroblasts, keratinocyrtes, macrophages) to exert their action.

TLC-NOSF interacts with the wound micro-environment of the wound by preventing the detrimental effect of Matrix Metallo Proteases (MMPs) which in excess in chronic wounds creates a continuous degradation of the extra-cellular matrix. TLC-NOSF restores balance in the wound bed so granulation of chronic wounds can occur. UrgoStart thereby promotes faster wound healing.
