Mucopolysaccharide–cartilage complex (MCC) is a healing ointment derived from bovine trachea. It is a complex mixture containing naturally occurring biologically active substances present in living cartilage.
John F. Prudden, discovered the clinical value of MCC in 1954, when he was an Associate Professor of Clinical Surgery at Columbia Presbyterian Medical Center. As part of a study to reverse the negative effects of corticosteroids on wound healing, Dr. Prudden applied MCC powder to open wounds. The MCC accelerated wound healing and reduced inflammation of the surrounding tissues.
