GelSana is developing novel wound healing hydrogels that heal tissues faster than other products on the market, reducing the risk of infection. We are initially targeting diabetic ulcers which are difficult to resolve, and which can result in limb amputation (over 80,000 per year occur in the U.S.). The materials from which our hydrogels are made have been shown to be anti-inflammatory and prevent the foreign body response when in contact with the body. In animal studies, we have demonstrated the ability for our hydrogels to heal diabetic wounds faster, matching the rate of healthy wound healing. These materials also offer controlled delivery of therapeutics to promote even faster healing for chronic wounds that may need drugs provided over time to fully resolve.
