Maintenance of a moist wound environment facilitates the wound-healing process particularly in burn patients. Conventional therapy of burn injuries include application of 1% Silver Sulfadiazine or Aquacel Ag® sheets. Moist Exposed Burn Ointment (MEBO) is an alternative burn ointment which contains beta-sitosterol and berberine that promotes anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial effects. This study aims to review clinical trials comparing the use of MEBO versus conventional methods for burn wound management.
