ConvaTec will be launching in Europe Chlorasolv, a gentle wound debrider efficient against biofilm, within the recognized Wound HygieneTM protocol of care, designed to accelerate healing in hard-to-heal wounds.
ConvaTec, one of the world’s leading companies in advanced wound care and RLS Global, a medical healthcare company based in Sweden, have entered a global collaboration to commercialize ChloraSolv. ChloraSolv is a ground-breaking gentle debrider, which is already currently sold in some European countries. ChloraSolv will be included in ConvaTec’s Wound HygieneTM Protocol of care for hard-to-heal wounds, which was developed by Key Opinion Leaders (“KOLs”) and promoted by ConvaTec, where it will add a significant benefit in terms of debridement solutions.
The collaboration includes rights to commercialize ChloraSolv in Europe with immediate effect, and future rights to commercialize in the USA and Rest of World (“ROW”) upon regulatory approval. Within the framework of the collaboration, ConvaTec will leverage its strong global presence and well-established best in class commercial infrastructure to support the commercialization and go-to-market activities for ChloraSolv. RLS will be responsible for continued research and development and ConvaTec will take the lead for go-to-market activities for ChloraSolv.
“For the past six months, ConvaTec has thoroughly evaluated the product ChloraSolv and RLS. We concluded that ChloraSolv, with its unique properties, will be an important addition to ConvaTec’s Wound HygieneTM offering to customers. Gentle yet effective wound debridement is an important component to safe and effective wound healing, and it is critical that more patients have access to this treatment in the future. RLS has an experienced team on board, with impressive knowledge of the advanced wound care business, and has built a very clear and comprehensive roadmap to bring this product to the market. We look forward to establishing a long-term collaboration with RLS”, commented David Shepherd, President & COO, AWC.
“This collaboration is a breakthrough for RLS and aligned with our vision of being a leading research driven platform company. We are pleased to establish this collaboration with one of the world’s largest wound care companies and that RLS now has access to a comprehensive global distribution channel supported by a committed and competent partner. RLS and ConvaTec share a common view of ChloraSolv’s patient benefits and its contribution to more cost-effective wound care”, says Karin Fischer – CEO of RLS.
