Eighty-nine fully photo-documented case reports were examined in order to get a clear picture of the effect of L-Mesitran. This honey-based ointment is new on the market and clinical data was unavailable till now. A free, computer wound registration program was used to collect data from different locations in a standardized way in order to facilitate wound data analysis.

Depending on the underlying pathology the wounds healed with a mean healing time of 32 days. The small amount of cases per pathology and the variability within the different pathologies made it very difficult to evaluate the results in a clear and comprehensive way.
A non-randomised comparison with a similar photo-documented standardized database with other dressings suggests that the honey ointment is faster healing than other high tech dressings. We surmise that this ointment has a very quick debriding and antibacterial activity. The new honey ointment should be compared directly to other available high tech dressings to quantify any difference in effect on healing.
