Silverlon wound dressings have a permanently plated metallic surface, which provides the antimicrobial benefits of silver in the dressing without staining the skin and without increasing bioburden. Silverlon was originally developed for the U.S military, where it is still extensively used for management of burn and blast injuries. Silverlon dressings are used today by surgeons and other healthcare professionals around the world on surgical wounds, in negative pressure wound therapy, and chronic wounds, burns, skin grafts, and IV and catheter-related wounds.

    ARGENTUM MEDICAL AWARDED $8.4M BARDA CONTRACT
    FOR SILVERLON® WOUND TECHNOLOGY TO PREPARE U.S. FOR NUCLEAR
    AND RADIATION EMERGENCIES

    Geneva, Ill. — To prepare for radiological and nuclear emergencies, the U.S. Department of Health and Human
    Services (HSS) has announced it will work with Argentum Medical, LLC to repurpose its commercial SILVERLON®
    technology for radiation injuries of the skin.

    As a pioneer of silver technology, the privately held company has been awarded a three-year, $8.4 million contract
    with the Biomedical Advanced Research and Development Authority (BARDA), part of the HHS Office of the Assistant
    Secretary for Preparedness and Response (ASPR). This contract will look at the potential use of its SILVERLON®
    technology for use for low-grade and severe skin radiation injuries after a radiation emergency.

    Under a separate contract with BARDA, Argentum Medical is nearing completion of studies required to apply for
    FDA clearance of SILVERLON® for skin burns caused by sulfur mustard chemical weapon exposure.

    “SILVERLON® antimicrobial technology has been battle field-tested by the U.S. Military in the most austere
    environments for over a decade. The stringent evaluation process of the HHS further supports SILVERLON’s
    clinically-proven efficacy, safety and multidisciplinary value,” said Raul Brizuela, president and CEO of Argentum
    Medical. “Radiation injuries of the skin can be life-threatening and require reliable, sustained and versatile
    antimicrobial protection. It’s an honor to extend our SILVERLON® technology to support the critical work of the HHS
    to advance America’s preparedness for radiological and nuclear emergencies.”


    SILVERLON’S MILITARY HERITAGE
    Developed for combat injuries, SILVERLON® antimicrobial technology is now used by every branch of the U.S.
    Military. As the evidence-based antimicrobial dressing available, SILVERLON® products contain 50 to 100 times more
    metallic silver ions than other silver-impregnated dressings.

    Studies have shown SILVERLON® to be highly effective in hostile and austere military environments. The U.S. Army
    uses SILVERLON® wound-care technology extensively in the management of burn and blast injuries.

    SILVERLON® is incorporated into numerous deployed Medical Tactical Combat Casualty Care kits and is also
    supplied in bulk to Combat and Support Hospitals and Tactical Forward Surgical Teams. It is also included in burn
    care protocols in the Joint Theater Trauma System Clinical Practice Guideline.

    SILVERLON® burn products and protocols are extensively used by the US Army and by US Air Force Critical Care Air
    Transport (CCAT) teams and are taught at the US Air Force School of Aerospace Medicine Critical Care Air Transport
    Basic Course.

    Beyond the military, SILVERLON® dressings are used today by surgeons and other healthcare professionals around
    the world on surgical wounds, in negative pressure wound therapy, on chronic wounds, burns, skin grafts, and IV
    and catheter-related wounds.

    Argentum Medical continues to explore new applications and markets for its SILVERLON® technology in keeping
    with its corporate mission to improve clinical outcomes. For more about SILVERLON®, visit Silverlon.com.
