Anabact 0.75% w/w Gel (Metronidazole)
Anabact Gel is the only metronidazole gel specifically indicated for the deodorisation of fungating tumours, gravitational ulcers and decubitus ulcers, and is clinically proven to rapidly reduce pain and infection as well as discharge and odour1. Anabact Gel is included in many local and regional wound care formularies.
Metronidazole is an antibacterial agent which has been used for many years in the treatment of anaerobic infections.
As most topical Metronidazole gels are only licensed for the treatment of rosacea,
it is important to prescribe Anabact by brand name, if intending to use for fungating tumours or ulcers.
Anabact is available in 15g, 30g and 40g sizes for convenience of use and reduced wastage, and can be used with many standard non-medicated and non-adherent dressings.
Fungating tumours, pressure ulcers and other chronic wounds are frequently the source of offensive odours that distress patients, family and healthcare professionals2. The management of patients with a fungating wound is focused essentially upon symptom control and appropriate psychosocial support.
