Arch’s team will be available for discussions with clinicians throughout the Symposium and at Arch’s booth (#535) in the exhibit hall.

Terrence W. Norchi, MD, President and CEO of Arch Therapeutics, said, “We are delighted that AC5 Advanced Wound System will be presented again at this important Symposium. Prior presentations at SAWC included a case of limb salvage in a 32 year-old patient with a necrotic spider-bite; management of post-Mohs surgery wounds; and treatment of recalcitrant wounds that previously failed to respond to other modalities. Clinicians manage a broad array of acute and chronic challenging wounds, often in patients with concurrent medical problems that interfere with healing. AC5, with its proprietary self-assembling peptide technology, presents patients and doctors an unusual mechanism of action and a different approach to wound care.”
