  • Bacteriophages are applied for treatment of pyogenic wounds, abscesses, major burns, surgical wounds.
  • Bacteriophages are applied locally (irrigations, soaking therapy, tamponing with liquid phage), as well as orally.

  • Bacteriophages may be applied for prevention of bacterial exacerbations in case of superficial wounds in the risk groups: in elderly people, patients with allergies, immunity compromised patients, patients with diabetes and other chronic diseases.  

 

The elderly people, fragile, suffering of diabetes, severe venous insufficiency, and after chemotherapy, often suffer of non-healing wounds.  Besides, the major burns, furuncles, and abscesses stubbornly resist treatment. The most dangerous of them are surgical or burn wounds infected with hospital microbial strains – Staphylococcus aureus, Pseudomonas Aureginosa, etc., resistant to the majority of antibiotics used in the modern clinical practice.

 

The bacteria from the wound can penetrate the blood channels inducing severe systemic infections (endocarditis, sepsis, etc.). The following symptoms may speak for development of systemic infections: general uneasiness, body temperature rise, shivers, occurring during a week after the wound onset.
