DOSAGE AND ADMINISTRATION
Cleanse the wound with ALLCLENZ® Wound Cleanser or saline. Avoid cleansing with hydrogen peroxide solution as it may inactivate the papain. Apply ACCUZYME (papain and urea) directly to the wound, cover with appropriate dressing, secure into place. Daily or twice daily applications are preferred. Irrigate the wound at each redressing to remove any accumulation of liquefied necrotic material. NOTE: Papain may also be inactivated by the salts of heavy metals such as lead, silver and mercury. Contact with medications containing these metals should be avoided.
30g tube, 6g tube. Store in a cool place 8°-15°C (46°-59°F).
Do not refrigerate.
