CellerateRX(R) Activated Collagen is the Differentiator
CellerateRX(R)'s Activated Collage(TM) (approximately 1/100th the size of native collagen) delivers the essential benefits of collagen to a wound immediately, where other forms of native, intact collagen in commercially available products require time for the body to break down. In people with compromised health or circulation, the difference in wound healing can be significant. CellerateRX(R) is FDA cleared for all wound types except for 3rd degree burns and is available in both powder and gel form. CellerateRX(R), which has widely been used for treatment of podiatric wounds, specifically diabetic ulcers, is now being utilized by other medical practices. These include but are not limited to the treatment of first and second degree burns, surgical wounds, and dermatological procedures. These additional procedures join the already extensive list of medical conditions CellerateRX(R) has successfully treated.
