Current research on the use of UVC devices in wound care

Updated: Jun 26


A new significant research finding on the use of UVC device in wound care has emerged. Professor Ozlem Ozmen from Burdur Mehmet Akif Ersoy University, Department of Pathological Veterinary Medicine, along with her research team conducted a study in 2021 titled "Ameliorative and Disinfection Effects of Ultraviolet-C Radiation on Experimentally Induced and Infected Skin Wounds: A Mice Model Study" (1). The study investigated the use of UVC radiation as a treatment modality for staphylococcus aureus, staphylococcus epidermidis, and streptococcus sp. bacteria in an in vivo setting. These bacteria play a significant role globally as causative agents of wound infections and skin infections.





The research results are highly encouraging, as UVC was found to have a significant impact on wound healing and bacterial neutralization. In addition to disinfection, UVC radiation was found to have wound healing-promoting effects, such as slowing the secretion of caspase-3 protein, a finding significant for promoting healthy cell regeneration and preventing tumor occurrence (2). Based on pathological studies, UVC did not cause damage to living tissue DNA. Researchers recommend the use of UVC in wound care in small and repeated doses administered daily to the patient. This treatment model is also the basis for the operation of the WCD wound care device manufactured by Led Future, which gives the animal's own immune system an advantage by keeping external pathogen loads low.


The study conducted by Ozmen's research team supports previous findings, particularly on the use of UVC as a disinfection method in wound care and the safety of UVC for skin cells in the wound area.
