Flammacerium® is a unique association of Silver sulfadiazine and cerium nitrate used in hospital and burn centers. Silver sulfadiazine has a strong bactericidal and bacteriostatic effect on both Gram-positive and Gram-negative micro-organisms and cerium enhances the antimicrobial properties of silver sulfadiazine, and it forms a leathery eschar which reduces the risk of infection. In addition, cerium prevents the deterioration of the body’s immune system.
