It's been fascinating for me to watch how wound care worldwide has developed over the past few years, from a field in which therapy was directed purely in response to wound reactions (exudate, redness, maceration), to targeting anticipated wound biological changes. We see dressings and agents directed against matrix metalloproteinases, against inflammation, and against biofilm, and there is also the probability of the introduction of new peptides that are aimed at directly intervening in wound healing sequences. All this has been possible as new biologic data become available.
