Using Fat to Help Wounds Heal Without Scars

Penn researchers help break ground on method to transform cells January 05, 2017 PHILADELPHIA – Doctors have found a way to manipulate wounds to heal as regenerated skin rather than scar tissue. The method involves transforming the most common type of cells found in wounds into fat cells – something that was previously thought to

Researchers Develop Novel Wound-Healing Technology

Tue, 11/29/2016 - 2:10pm by Washington State University A WSU research team has successfully used a mild electric current to take on and beat drug-resistant bacterial infections, a technology that may eventually be used to treat chronic wound infections. The researchers report on their work in the online edition of npj Biofilms and Microbiomes. Led by Haluk

Cell Discovery May Lead to Faster Wound Healing

Thu, 08/18/2016 - 10:43am by Bevin Fletcher - Associate Editor - A new study gives a clearer picture of how cells interact with their environment, and could lead to better engineering of cells for faster tissue regeneration. Prior to the study, published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, scientists thought cells degraded material

Peppermint oil, cinnamon could help treat chronic wounds

Wed, 07/08/2015 - 11:30am American Chemical Society Infectious colonies of bacteria called biofilms that develop on chronic wounds and medical devices can cause serious health problems and are tough to treat. But now scientists have found a way to package antimicrobial compounds from peppermint and cinnamon in tiny capsules that can both kill biofilms and

Nanotech-Enabled Moisturizer Speeds Healing of Diabetic Skin Wounds

Spherical nucleic acids silence gene that interferes with wound healing APR 23, 2015 // MEGAN FELLMAN A new high-tech but simple ointment applied to the skin may one day help diabetic patients heal stubborn and painful ulcers on their feet, Northwestern University researchers report. Scientist and dermatologist Amy S. Paller and chemist Chad A. Mirkin are

Nanoparticle Therapy Promotes Wound Healing

March 26, 2015—(Bronx, NY)—An experimental therapy developed by researchers at Albert Einstein College of Medicine of Yeshiva University cut in half the time it takes to heal wounds compared to no treatment at all. Details of the therapy, which was successfully tested in mice, were published online in the Journal of Investigative Dermatology. "We envision
