Diabetic Patients in Holguín Treated with HEBERPROT-b

DTCuba: Havana.- Health authorities in the eastern Cuban province of Holguín are administering HEBERPROT-p to treat ulcers in diabetic patients.

More than 200 patients have benefited from that medication, which is also called Recombinant Skin Growth Factor.

HEBERPROT-p is also administered in general hospitals in the municipalities of Gibara, Banes, Mayarí and Moa, and has been used gradually in outpatient services at primary healthcare centers.

The medication, which is injected in the affected area three times a week, has proved to be highly effective to speed up cicatrization.

This therapy has been successful to treat lesions that did not responded well to traditional treatments, thus preventing the amputation of limbs in most cases.
