A metal-EDTA compound/complex for combatting biofilms and/or treating wounds. The compound/complex comprises EDTA and from two to four metal ions. Of those two to four metal ions, at least two are different metal ions selected from Ag, Al, Au, Ba, Bi, Tl, Ce, Co, Cu, Fe, Ga, Ir, Mo, Rh, Ru, Ti, and Zn ions. The metal-EDTA compound/complex may exhibit any one or more of anti-microbial, anti-biofilm and anti-inflammatory activities in use and may increase the susceptibility of a biofilm and the microorganisms within said biofilm to attack by anti-microbial agents, helping to remove and sanitise the biofilm. A composition, wound dressing and medical device comprising the metal-EDTA complex are also provided. Uses of the metal-EDTA compound/complex as a medicament and/or to sanitise and/or substantially remove a biofilm from a substrate are also disclosed.
