Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Varidase is used throughout the world for the topical treatment of purulent and suppurating wounds. Its efficacy is centred on two enzymes, streptokinase and streptodornase. However, these represent only a small proportion of the bulked solid. This article gives an overview of the preparation and mode of action of Varidase, as well as showing some of the research and development that has gone into improving the assessment of its quality and composition.
