Promogran is a topical wound treatment. Growth factors and protease (protein-digesting enzyme) levels are often inbalanced during the inflammatory phase of healing. Promogran inactivates protease, whilst enhancing the release of natural endogenous growth factors back into the wound, hence modifys the wound environment to optimise healing.

Promogran is indicated for the management of all types of chronic wounds that are free of necrotic tissue and infection (e.g. leg ulcers and pressure sores). The wound must be completely debrided before application of Promogran. The dressing is applied directly to the wound.
