ADDISON, Texas, May 31, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- ULURU Inc. (OTCQB: ULUR) today announced an Altrazeal® expert meeting was held during the European Wound Management Association Conference held in Copenhagen on May 15-17, 2013.
Attending the meeting were physicians, wound care managers, and commercial partners from Europe and Australia. This meeting was designed to introduce physicians and wound care managers to the clinical and economical benefits of Altrazeal® and demonstrate application techniques and provide the science behind the nano-porous material that produces an ideal moist wound healing environment.
The presentation of clinical data clearly demonstrated the clinical and economic benefits of Altrazeal®, including:
- Avoiding lower limb amputation.

- Transfer from treatment with negative pressure wound therapy to Altrazeal® reduced treatment cost 10 fold and resulted in healing.

Commenting on the meeting, Helmut Kerschbaumer, Managing Director of Altrazeal Trading Ltd., stated, "This was an important meeting as it gave us the opportunity to present Altrazeal® to conference participants and commercial partners. The comprehensive presentations were well received by the meeting participants and enabled a greater understanding of advanced wound care, the scientific attributes and the clinical applications of Altrazeal®. The outstanding clinical data presented clearly demonstrated the clinical advantage of Altrazeal® and the potential to dramatically reduce the overall cost of wound care. Similar clinical results and cost savings are routinely reported to us which further confirms the market opportunity for Altrazeal®."
