New solution for wound healing succeeds in preclinical trials

3 Jun '20
Scientists at the Tomsk Polytechnic University and the Siberian State Medical University are working on new polymeric membranes to heal festering wounds. They have published interim research results in English in IOP Science.

A spokesperson for the developers was quoted as saying that this new composite material “is placed on a wound, sorbs pus, and is then easily removed without re-traumatizing the wound.” In addition, the spokesperson said, the Siberian product is “less costly and more efficacious” than the existing competition thanks to its special properties and an advantageous method of making the composite (electrospinning).

The new membranes are reported to have been successful at the preclinical trial stage, and now their regenerative and antibacterial properties appear well proven.
