MediWound Ltd. (Nasdaq: MDWD), a fully-integrated biopharmaceutical company focused on next-generation enzymatic therapeutics for tissue repair, today announced collaboration with 3M Health Care. 3M Health Care will provide its market leading two-layer compression systems Coban™ 2 and Coban™ 2 Lite to be used during the debridement and wound healing phases of the EscharEx Phase III study.

“In our pursuit of excellence, one primary aim is to ensure consistency across subjects while delivering optimal care throughout the study. 3M Health Care’s Coban™ compression systems stand out as global market leaders, and we’re pleased to designate them as the standard for our Phase 3 study,” commented Ofer Gonen, Chief Executive Officer of MediWound. “Given that compression therapy is pivotal in managing venous leg ulcers (VLUs), it’s imperative that we employ top-tier products. With 3M Health Care’s two-layer compression systems, we’re confident we’re doing just that.”

EscharEx is being evaluated for efficacy and safety in the debridement of chronic wounds, with the first indication being VLUs. During the debridement phase, as well as in the wound healing phase of the study, 3M’s two-layer compression systems will be used as standard of care in all study arms, until the wounds reach complete healing.

“We are excited to partner with MediWound on this pivotal Phase III study. Establishing Coban™ 2 and Coban™ 2 Lite as the benchmark in compression therapy underscores the brand’s leadership and reinforces its position as the top choice for VLU patients,” said Rob Steel, Global Portfolio Director at 3M Health Care. “We anticipate leveraging the comprehensive data from the study to convey to clinicians and payors the clinical and economic advantages of our compression systems.”
