HERPECILIN – Labial Herpes
6mL (tube) Class IIa Medical Device for the treatment of open Labial Herpes lesions (Official Indication)
LABIAL HERPES (Cold sore, Herpes Simplex Labialis)
Physiopathology: After initial infection, HSV1 ascends nerve axons & remains latent in the ganglia, until it gets activated by a trigger & migrates to the skin and mucosa surface. A vesicle develops where the virus multiplies. The open lesion then sheds large amounts of free virus particles which infect new host cells, spreading the infection & lesions, resulting in cellular destruction, inflammation, pain & burning sensation.
Ideal Treatment Approach: An ideal treatment should stop virus activation, but such a treatment should be administered as soon as the virus is activated. Oral Acyclovir may be a good antiviral but should be administered before the virus reaches oral mucosa (preventive treatment).
Currently Available Treatments:
- Topical Anti-Viral: none
- Intracellular Virus inhibitors: Acyclovirs such as Zovirax, etc… → Good as preventive but not effective at all on free virus.
- Symptomatic: topical anesthetics, antiseptics, analgesics, protective or hydrating films.
None of these treatments is capable of neutralizing the virus & stopping further infection, blocking inflammation & pain, or stimulating instant lesion healing so as to minimize pain & irritation.
VITROBIO‘s Completely NEW Therapeutic Approach:
VITROBIO elaborated a patented glycerol-based filmogen viscous solution, glycerol being commonly used as pharmaceutical excipient & 18 times more osmotically active than Sea Water yet NON-IRRITANT (International patents: PCT/FR99/01340 & PCT/EP2013/061835). The hypertonic solution film attracts hypotonic fluids from the lesion surface and dislodges all contaminants, including virus particles and bacteria, reduces pain & irritation and promotes a clean, favorable environment conducive to accelerated lesion healing. Due to instant the mechanical effects consisting in cleaning & protecting the sore, it helps neutralize the infection, heal the lesion & provides symptomatic relief (including local inflammation and pain) very fast. Herpecilin is the 1st, topical, safe, new generation of topical cold sore treatment.
Product Presentation: 6mL tube
Posology: Apply a few drops on the lesion, 3 to 4 times a day until complete recovery.
Regulatory Status: Due to the mechanical topical filmogen activity without any pharmacological, biological, metabolic or immunological interaction with the cellular structure: Class IIa Medical Device in Europe.
Side Effects: None
Clinical Efficacy: Full trial published in Int J Biological & Pharmaceutical Res. 2013; 4(4): 242-249; e-ISSN: 0976-3651.
Conclusion: 1st topical Cleaning & Healing Gel for Cold Sores
