M. BARNA et al. ( 2007) University Hospital for Sports and Rehabilitation Medicine, 2nd Medical Faculty of the Karls University, Prague: Distinct wound healing effects can be attributed to Traumaplant as a result of a randomized, double-blind study with 278 patients. The product in a 10% dosage of active ingredient was tested against a reference cream containing 1% of active ingredient.
M. KUCERA et al. (2005) University Hospital for Sports and Rehabilitation Medicine, 2nd Medical Faculty of the Karls University, Prague: In a double-blind randomised and controlled clinical trial with 218 patients the local efficacy and safety of Symphytum herb extract cream 10% against 1% in the indication muscle pain myalgia could be confirmed. Compared to reference product, the active treatment was clearly superior regarding the reduction of the primary criterion pain on active motion.
M. KUCERA et al. (2004) University Hospital for Sports and Rehabilitation Medicine, 2nd Medical Faculty of the Karls University, Prague: In a double-blind randomised clinical trial (203 patients) the efficacy, safety and tolerability as well as the excellent risk-benefit ratio of Traumaplant® cream with accidental and sports injuries (ankle distortion) could be demonstrated.
M. KUCERA, (2000) University Hospital for Sports and Rehabilitation Medicine, 2nd Medical Faculty of the Karls University, Prague: In an open, uncontrolled study, 105 patients with locomotor system symptoms were treated with Traumaplant®.
A clear effect was noted for all diseases in which the muscular component plays a role
G. MAYER (1993) tested Traumaplant®
in a renewed comparative study of acute calcareous tendonitis syndrome (painful shoulder). The study criteria were day pain, night pain and painful arches by abduction. The study shows a definite superior effect
of Traumaplant®cream with consistent cutaneous application compared to the control group.
Traumaplant® also proved to be a very effective cream for the treatment of sport injuries of the knee joint a major field of application of percutaneous medications -
as demonstrated in the study by H. HESS, Saarlouis Orthopedic Hospital (Germany, 1991). The therapeutic parameters includes pain, swelling and restriction of movement.
A total of 40 patients were examined in this study which verified the excellent tolerance
of the preparation and marked efficacy
of Traumaplant® for blunt sport injuries.
The study report by G. MAYER confirmed
the findings of H. HESS that for the same indication, i.e. knee joint contusions and sprains, Traumaplant® has a distinctly positive therapeutic effect on the acutely injured knee (MAYER 1992).
G. MAYER, University Hospital for Orthopedics, Greifswald (Germany), studied the antitraumatic and antiphlogistic effect of Traumaplant® cream in the local treatment of acute lateral sprains compared to cryotherapy. Hereby, the positive effect achieved with Traumaplant® was significantly superior to the comparative therapy (MAYER 1991).
R. NIEDNER, (1989) Dermatological University Hospital, Freiburg (Germany), confirmed the wound-healing action of Traumaplant® cream in a controlled clinical- pharmacological trial. Traumaplant® was thereby shown to exert a significant effect
on the stimulation of epithelialization of open,
flat wounds compared to the effect achieved with the emulsion cream base.
Bruises and sprains (sports and accidental injuries), joint and muscle pain, slow healing wounds.
