Stratus Pharamceuticals, Inc
Each gram of VASOLEX™ OINTMENT contains: ACTIVES: Trypsin USP NLT 90 USP units, Balsam Peru 87.0mg and Castor Oil USP 788.0mg in an ointment base of: INACTIVES: Glyceryl Monostearate, Glycine, L-Proline, Taurine and White Petrolatum.
Trypsin promotes debridement of eschar and other necrotic tissue. It appears that in many instances, removal of wound debris strengthens humoral defense mechanisms sufficiently to retard proliferation of local pathogens. Balsam Peru is a effective capillary bed stimulant used to increase circulation in the wound site area. Also, Balsam Peru has a mildly bactericidal action. Castor Oil improves epithelialization by reducing premature epithelial desiccation and cornification. Also, it can act as a protective covering and aids in the reduction of pain.
VASOLEX™ OINTMENT is used to promote wound healing and the treatment of decubitus ulcers, varicose ulcers and dehiscent wounds.
VASOLEX™ is easy to apply and quickly reduces odors frequently accompanying a decubitus ulcer. The wound may be left open or appropriate dressing applied. Please note that wounds generally heal poorly in the presence of hemoglobin or zinc deficiency. VASOLEX™ can relieve pain and promote healing.
FOR EXTERNAL USE ONLY. Do not apply to fresh arterial clots. Avoid contact with eyes. Keep this and all other medications out of reach of children. Keep tightly closed. Use only as directed by a physician. When applied to a sensitive area, a temporary stinging may occur.
Apply a thin film of VASOLEX™ OINTMENT topically a minimum of twice daily or as often as necessary. Wound may be left unbandaged or appropriate dressing can be applied. To remove, wash gently with an appropriate wound cleanser.
