About Xiapex

Xiapex (collagenase clostridium histolyticum), is a pharmacological treatment for and Dupuytren's contracture and Peyronie's disease may be an alternative to invasive and often complicated surgery for patients. Xiapex is a combination of two purified clostridial collagenases for injection that enzymatically disrupts the contracting cord and collagen plaque and reduces the contraction. Xiapex is administered by local injection directly into the Dupuytren's cord in the finger or in the plaque on penis. Twenty-four hours after the injection, a finger extension procedure can be carried out as necessary to break the cord and allow extension of the Dupytren's affected finger. As a complement to Xiapex injection treatment for Peyronie's disease, modelling of the penis is needed. Modelling is performed 24-72 hours after the second injection of the cycle in an attempt to further disrupt the plaque and help straighten the penis.
