As noted in the U.S. Library of Medicine at the National Institutes of Health, the amniotic membrane used in the HealPrecisely treatment regimen can be a valid source for wound healing. The Study, published in 2016, followed two groups of patients with chronic leg ulcers. Group I was the control group and included 11 patients treated using conventional wound dressings that were changed daily for eight weeks. Group II consisted of 14 patients treated by placing an amniotic allograft over the ulcer, which was held in place with a secondary dressing. The allografts and dressings were changed daily. After 60 days of treatment, Group I showed no reduction in the size of their ulcers and had no relief for their pain. Group II, on the other hand, complete healing occurred within 14 to 60 days for all 14 patients in the study. Eleven of the 14 patients reported improvement in their pain level as well.
An article released by the International Wound Journal in 2020 compiled data from 257 articles, including articles on patient research using amniotic allografts. Patients were suffering from Diabetes mellitus, one of most serious, chronic, non-communicable diseases worldwide, and is currently the seventh leading cause of death worldwide. They found that the proportion of wound healing using human amniotic membranes was significantly higher than those who received conventional wound dressings alone. Those receiving the kind of care HealPrecisely offers had a 95 percent improvement in just six weeks.
Europe PMC released a literature review entitled “Amniotic Membrane Adjuncts and Clinical Applications in Wound Healing” in 2018. Following data from studies conducted between 2013 and 2017, they concluded that amniotic allografts were beneficial in the setting of difficult-to-heal fistulas and effective in treating diabetic and venous ulcers when combined with standard therapy.
“We know this treatment has the power to change lives,” said Jennifer Rivard, HealPrecisely’s COO. “We’ve seen amazing outcomes from patients who had little or no hope to be wound-free. This therapy is truly life-changing.”
