Clinical Study Finds Burn Patients Treated with Kerecis® Omega3 Intact Fish Skin Experienced Pain Relief, Fast Healing and No Infections

Kerecis, the company pioneering the use of fish skin in tissue regeneration, today announced the results of a new prospective case study of Kerecis Omega3 Burn. The study, announced at the American Burn Association annual meeting, found that patients with partial-thickness burn and donor-site wounds healed quickly, with no infection, after treatment with the fish-skin graft.

The effects of graphene and mesenchymal stem cells in cutaneous wound healing and their putative action mechanism

This study provides a review of the therapeutic potential of graphene dressing scaffolds and mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) and their synergistic effects with respect to cutaneous wound healing. This study also considers their putative action mechanism based on the antibacterial, immunomodulating, angiogenic, matrix remodeling effects of materials belonging to the graphene family and MSCs during the wound healing process.

Injectable Self‐Healing Antibacterial Bioactive Polypeptide‐Based Hybrid Nanosystems for Efficiently Treating Multidrug Resistant Infection, Skin‐Tumor Therapy, and Enhancing Wound Healing

The surgical procedure in skin‐tumor therapy usually results in cutaneous defects, and multidrug‐resistant bacterial infection could cause chronic wounds. Here, for the first time, an injectable self‐healing antibacterial bioactive polypeptide‐based hybrid nanosystem is developed for treating multidrug resistant infection, skin‐tumor therapy, and wound healing.

Encapsulation of Peppermint essential oil in nanostructured lipid carriers: In-vitro antibacterial activity and accelerative effect on infected wound healing

Despite the use of essential oils for wound healing, their application is compromised due to their hydrophobic and volatile nature. This study was conducted to evaluate the efficiency of peppermint essential oil (PEO) loaded into nanostructured lipid carriers (PEO-NLC) on In-vitro antibacterial activity and In-vivo infected wound healing in mice model.

Electroceutical Treatment of Pseudomonas aeruginosa Biofilms

Electroceutical wound dressings, especially those involving current flow with silver based electrodes, show promise for treating biofilm infections. However, their mechanism of action is poorly understood. We have developed an in vitro agar based model using a bioluminescent strain of Pseudomonas aeruginosa to measure loss of activity and killing when direct current was applied.

New research suggests potential role for wild blueberries in promoting wound healing

New research, published in The Journal of Cellular Biochemistry, reveals that the unique phenolic acids found in wild blueberries speed up the migration of cells that line our blood vessels (endothelial cells). Cell migration (the moving of cells in order to begin forming new tissue) is an integral part of angiogenesis (the development of blood vessels to supply the newly forming tissue) and the wound healing process.
