Matico

Background and study aims Wounds and ulcers are a major issue for health care systems and for individuals. The convention treatment (CT) is applying a tulle dressing over wound/ulcers on a weekly basis. As a result 80% of type-1 or type-2 wound/ulcers heal in six weeks.Matico (Buddleja globosa H.) is a shrub from Chile recognized by the Chilean Government Health Care System as a medicinal plant that can help heal wounds and ulcers. There has been no previous studies to demonstrate its therapeutic efficacy and safety for external and internal lesions. If matico is a medicinal plant with healing properties, we expect a 30% improvement in the healing process, a significant reduction in cost, and the same or less adverse reaction compared to CT alone and an improved quality of life. The aim of this study is to assess how well an extract of matico works on type-1 or type-2 wound/ulcers
