The present invention provides methods and compositions for promoting wound healing and reducing scar formation. In particular, the present invention provides cyanoacrylate polymer sealants formulated to contain biologically active elemental silver and/or insulin. The invention also provides methods and compositions for delivering silver and/or insulin in combination with cyanoacrylate sealants. In particular, the present invention provides methods and compositions suitable for treatment of w…
Disclosed are methods for sterilizing cyanoacrylate prepolymer compositions under visible light irradiation conditions wherein the prepolymer remains in polymerizable form after sterilization.
Disclosed are methods for treating burns on mammalian skin to reduce the risk of infection and to minimize fluid loss. Specifically, the methods of this invention involve the in situ formation of a polymeric cyanoacrylate film at the site of the burn. The cyanoacrylate film acts as a barrier inhibiting the introduction of pathogens (e.g., bacteria) into the burn area and as a barrier for the loss of fluids.
A cyanoacrylate adhesive is applied onto intact surface skin areas prone to ulceration so as to inhibit formation of surface skin ulcers.
