Interfyl® is advanced wound care that helps chronic wounds to heal.
A chronic wound is one that does not heal as it should. This may happen because of certain conditions like heart disease and diabetes, which can lead to poor circulation.
If the wound is not healed, it may lead to other problems, such as decreased quality of life.
Three of the most common types of chronic wounds are:
Each of these wounds can share some common symptoms, including:
Recent advances in medicine have given doctors new tools to help treat chronic wounds. One of those advances is Interfyl from Celularity.
Interfyl is made from the chorion, the outer layer of the placenta.
Interfyl is a filler derived from donated human tissue that helps the body heal where there isn’t enough tissue. This may happen when there is a deep wound or a complicated surgical opening.
The material used to make Interfyl is taken from the outer layer of the amniotic sac, the bag inside a woman’s womb where the baby develops and grows during pregnancy. The tissue used in the manufacture of Interfyl is donated by new parents following a healthy, full-term pregnancy and live birth.
Interfyl is regulated and approved by the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and accredited by the American Association of Blood Banks (AABB). It is manufactured according to strict safety standards.
All placenta donors are tested before the donation process. Once the baby of an approved donor has been delivered, the placenta is collected and sent to a Celularity lab for purification and processing. (The collection process occurs after labor and delivery—the baby is not at all affected.) At the lab, the placenta is washed and sterilized and all of the donor’s living cells are removed.
Interfyl provides a natural foundation for wound healing. Interfyl can fill the spaces of a wound, providing structural support so that the body can regenerate tissue and healing can take place.
After the wound has been cleaned, the doctor will apply Interfyl to the wound. Interfyl is designed to fill in the spaces of your wound, going where you need healing the most.
When Interfyl is used to help heal your wound, your doctor will give you instructions and tell you what to expect. You should keep the area clean and follow your doctor’s instructions very carefully. Consult your doctor if you have any questions.
