What microbes is ALLEVYN Ag effective against?
ALLEVYN Ag is effective against a broad spectrum of bacteria including antibiotic resistant bacteria such as Pseudomonas, Methicillin-Resistant Staphylococcus Aureus (MRSA) and Vancomycin Resistant Enterococcus (VRE).
Silver acts on several areas of the cell to achieve an effective bacteriocidal action. Clinical trials on ALLEVYN Ag have demonstrated its efficacy in patients with Lantis et al observing a significant reduction in bioburden in the wound during the use of ALLEVYN Ag combined with a decrease in the signs and symptoms of infection and a reduction in wound area.

Silver sulfadiazine has a long history of use in wound care, with the cumulative history of approved clinical use of over 35 years as a Medicinal Product. Post marketing surveillance data collected for SSD show that SSD is both safe and effective in preventing and treating infections in burns and other wounds.
