Burn & Wound Healing Preparations
Mechanism Of Action Of B-Sitosterol
Beta-sitosterol is one of several phytosterols (plant sterols).
The concept of this therapy is to expose the wound to a physiological moist environment to enhance the natural healing process, whereby keratinocyte migration, angiogenesis, and interaction with growth factors are facilitated.
Therapeutic Indications Of Sumo
Its indications are:
First-degree burns are burns that involve only the top layer of the skin and are mild in origin and usually heal rapidly (e.g. sunburn).
Second-degree burns are superficial and deeper burns that may not require skin grafting (removal of skin from one area to the affected area) if properly treated with this medicine.
Third-degree burns (burns that affect deep layers of the skin sometimes reaching the tendons, bones, and muscles), to reduce the painful skin area and prepare it for nonsurgical debridement and grafting.
To reduce pain in a donor site (skin area from which a shaving of your skin is taken to be grafted and used in your wounded skin area) and to control the risk of infection in that site enhancing skin recovery.
Surgical wounds include obstetrical (due to childbirth and its related processes) wounds.
Method Of Administration Of Sumo
