About Derma Sciences, Inc.
Derma Sciences is a global manufacturer and marketer of advanced wound care products. Its key product, MEDIHONEY®, is the leading brand of honey-based dressings for the management of wounds and burns. The product has been shown to be effective in a variety of indications, and was the focus of a positive large-scale randomized controlled trial on leg ulcers. Other key novel products introduced into the $14 billion global wound care market include XTRASORB(TM) for better management of wound exudate, and BIOGUARD(TM) for infection prevention. Derma also has in development DSC127, a novel pharmaceutical for accelerated wound healing and scar reduction. DSC127, an angiotensin analog, has shown positive healing results in multiple pre-clinical animal models. One possible mode of action of the drug is the up-regulation of mesenchymal stem cells at the wound site. Derma expects to announce the key efficacy endpoint result from this study during Q3 of 2010.
