Treatment of festering wounds on the skin and mucous membranes represents one of the most topical problems in present-day medicine. It is a centuries-old problem, indeed. An ever-growing resistance of microflora to modern antibiotics and antiseptic preparations leads to a high incidence of unsatisfactory results in treatment, in which case the search for and development of new, more efficient antimicrobial preparations and approaches to treatment come to the fore as one of priority directions in tackling the current situation.
FarGALS is actively used in surgery. Its efficiency was studied on the basis of:
1. Republican Center for Purulent Surgery and Surgical Complications of Diabetes (the results of research);
2. Republican Specialized Center for Surgery named after Academician V. Vakhidov;
3. 2nd Clinic of the Tashkent Medical Academy of the Republic of Uzbekistan.
Indications for the application of FarGALS in surgery:
- pyo-inflammatory diseases of soft tissues;
- suppuration of postoperative wounds;
- thermal affections (burns, frostbites);
- trophic ulcers;

The method of application: FarGALS is used locally in the form of applications with the help of sterile cotton-wool napkins gently soaked in the preparation, 2-3 times a day. The duration of therapy depends on the area of affection (4-7 days on average). It is also possible to inject the preparation into purulent wounds via a catheter (a drainpipe) using a syringe (with the preparation being diluted with distilled water 1:1).
