FOR COLONIZED/INFECTED LESION TREATMENT
Nowadays there are many medicated bandages and dressings are readily available for
Wound Infection; using a few antibacterial agents like: Silver, PHMB, nanoparticle, ions
etc, for the management of the "Wound Environment". However, such techniques imply
‘Antimicrobial’ as means of the biocide action!
Example: Products incorporating:
2- polyhexamethylene biguanide (PHMB)
Antimicrobial modes of action of silver lead to bacterial cell death and breakdown.
These are summarized as:
• Interference with bacterial electron transport
• Binding to bacterial DNA, thereby impairing cell replication
• Binding to the cell membrane, causing structural and receptor function damage
• Forming insoluble, metabolically ineffective cell compounds.
In addition, question marks have been raised over the long-term use of these dressings,
especially in infants.34 In recent times, there have been concerns about silver toxicity
and the systemic uptake and deposition of silver in organs such as the liver and kidney
has been noted.

PHMB is a synthetic polymer
- PHMB can enter bacterial cell membranes and kill bacteria.
- PHMB is thought to adhere to and disrupt target cell membranes, causing them to leak
potassium ions and other cytosolic components, resulting in bacterial cell death.
- PHMB binds to bacterial DNA and other nucleic acids, damaging or inactivating them.
PHMB therefore disrupts the bacteria, causing their death, and results in the release of
cell content and debris into the wound.

NANOSKIN®PLUS FOR COLONIZED/INFECTED LESION TREATMENT
- Preventing or managing infection is to ensure the host’s defenses are able to
outcompete microbial pathogens, leaving microbes unable to thrive and proliferate.
- Prevention and management of infection benefit is that there is no risk of toxicity to
healthy tissue or systemic absorption
NANOSKIN®PLUS is fiberpolysaccharides can significantly promote DNA synthesis
and increase cell division, thus delaying the aging body. These fibers are of high
concentration of flavonoid compounds, diterpene, triterpene, lignans, phenylpropanoids
and prenylated acetophenones to strengthen our immunity cells and improve our
NANOSKIN®PLUS moreover, contain substances such as β-glucan polysaccharide
and significant amount of glucuronic acid, which acts physiologically in the body as an
effective detoxifying agent.
NANOSKIN®PLUS beneficial for those suffering from exposure syndrome, radiation
burns, or Diabetic, infected wound, leishmaniasis, cancer, chronic fatigue.
NANOSKIN®PLUS is considered to be a modifier of biological response due to its
immunomodulator potential. When it is recognized by specific cellular receptors, have
the ability to enhance the host’s immune response. Other beneficial effects such as
anticarcinogenic, antimutagenic, hypocholesterolemic and blood sugar reduction .
Wound care has seen much progress in recent decades, especially new approaches
and materials. NANOSKIN®PLUS application , which yielded extremely
encouraging results and led to its recommendation as a treatment of infected wounds.
There are a number of polypeptides, called growth factors, some of which act on many
cell types and others on restricted cellular targets. In addition to stimulating cell
proliferation, growth factors can have an effect on locomotion, contractility, cell
differentiation and angiogenesis, additional activities that can be as important as the
effects on the promotion

from green tea with the stem cells produced by applying plant cell culture
The stem cells extract in the culture of green tea was used to increase the
availability of blood stem cells to reverse the signs of senescence in human
The technique of plants tissue culture is based on plant stem cells propagation to
produce either a complete or only the plant tissue or just a single cell in culture
for harvesting metabolites from the plants.
The tissue culture plants can be started from almost all plant tissues. The fabric
material is obtained from plant cultivation is called an explant. As a kind of
reaction from the wound, new cells are formed at the cut surfaces of the
explants. The cells divide slowly to form a less colorful cell mass which is called
"callus" . These cells are the differentiated cells that do not possess the
distinguishing features of normal plant cells. The "callus" cells are comparable to
the meristematic regions stem cells. A high production of callus cells can be
cultured as single cells or small groups of cells in liquid culture.
Green tea is a plant that has been used for obtaining explant tissue in order to start a
culture of plant cells.
An extract of these cells was incorporated into the Nanoskin culture;
producing the 100 % natural vegetable membrane called Nanoskin PLUS. The
membrane was tested in a series of studies on the efficacy of chronic wounds
such as diabetic feet, pressure ulcer and trauma.
The results obtained using membrane with plant stem cell show rapid healing
quality at low cost.
