PYN 16 is the result of a joint development collaboration between Phynova and ElexoPharm, an innovative German biopharmaceutical company.
PYN 16 is a highly purified herbal extract that inhibits cortisol production in chronic wounds thereby leading to re-epithelialisation and wound healing. Cortisol production remains abnormally high in chronic wounds and it has been shown that inhibiting cortisol accelerates wound healing. PYN16 is also a potent antibiotic and may help to prevent infection of wounds.
PYN 16 may be administered as a wound healing agent in plasters, gels or topical creams and may work well for diabetic sores, venous and pressure ulcers amongst other chronic wounds.
