GONZALEZ TUERO, Jaime Humberto. Non traditional drugs in the treatment of patients with wounds which cure by second intention. MEDISAN [online]. 2014, vol.18, n.11, pp.1603-1610. ISSN 1029-3019.

At present there are new drugs with a high effectiveness in the treatment of patients with wounds which cure by second intention. That is why it was decided to make a literature review on the effects, cause of prescription and use of some of these non traditional, more modern and more effective products which are internationally marketed; among which there were the growth factors, interleukins, collagen, quitine, ozone, polyvinilbutilic ether, drugs for debridement, olygotherapy, the negative pressure devices, the "intelligent" bandages, the interactive and bioactive dressings, and the cure in humid atmosphere. Also, the use of mother cells is pointed out, the gen therapy and the defense peptides, as greater promising possibilities for the future. These new drugs are not used in Cuba, but if they are included to the National Health System, they would influence in the improvement of the medical care quality in patients with dehiscent wounds

Keywords : wounds scaring; pharmaceutical formulae; therapeutic effectiveness.
