  • An Innovative Wound Dressing for Radiation Dermatitis StrataXRT® is a film-forming wound dressing that dries into a thin, flexible and protective layer that is bacteriostatic, gas permeable, waterproof and inert. Radiation dermatitis is an acute skin reaction affecting approximately 95% of patients receiving radiation therapy to the breast, groins or perineum1. It generally ranges from erythema to dry or even moist desquamation and can be a source of significant pain, discomfort and psychological distress2,3.

    StrataXRT

    • StrataXRT is a proprietary film-forming wound dressing specifically designed for radiation dermatitis and dedicated to the management of its clinical signs, such as dry and moist desquamation.

    Does not cause bolus effect6

    Film-forming, full-contact and

    flexible

    Can be applied from day one of radiation therapy

    Faster re-epithelialization7

    Protective, inert and bacteriostatic

    • In contrast to StrataXRT, common moisturizers have shown no clinical efficacy4,5. They can even cause pain and discomfort when rubbed into the skin. The unique formula of StrataXRT spreads very easily and does not need to be rubbed in. It also requires a very small amount of product to create a thin protective layer to manage the side effects of radiation dermatitis.

  • How much is required? StrataXRT 0.35oz (10 g) contains enough gel for over 1 week of treatment during a standard fractionation plan* applying the gel twice per day.

    StrataXRT 0.70 oz (20 g) contains enough gel for over 2 weeks of treatment during a standard fractionation plan* applying the gel twice per day.

    StrataXRT 1.75 oz (50 g) contains enough gel for over 5 weeks of treatment during a standard fractionation plan* applying the gel twice per day.
