A New Way To Treat Ulcers?

It looks like a new Israeli startup has discovered a new way to treat ulcers, which may lead towards happier patients suffering from a painful disease.

(Israel 21st Century) But the woman called 'Tammy' by everyone from new acquaintances to long time employees of the company she founded four years ago - HealOr - doesn't let the friendly atmosphere in her office interfere with the task at hand: the Israeli company's development of groundbreaking products to treat three sorts of chronic wounds: diabetic, venous and pressure ulcers. [...]

"We've admitted up to date 13 diabetic patients into the study, and the patients are all responding to the treatment. We accepted only patients who have unsuccessfully gone through standard care in wound-healing clinics. Our trials have shown that 80% of the wounds achieve closure between three weeks and three months. We've shown this in animal models and now in clinical trials on humans, we've seen a dramatic effect on wound healing behavior."

That is quite impressive! Unfortunately this treatment seems to be available only in Israel for now. Ironically, it seems that they have received so much publicity that they thought it was time for an overhaul of their site.

It will be interesting to see how their treatment progresses further along, and hopefully within a decade (hopefully less than that) this treatment will be available worldwide, as it would be a direct testimony to how Israel is making the world a better place for all.
