Publication in Advanced Science: Chemokine-capturing wound contact layer rescues dermal healing

Experts estimate that between two and four million people in Germany suffer from chronic skin wounds that are difficult to treat. Researchers at the Leibniz Institute of Polymer Research Dresden e.V. for the first time developed and tested a wound dressing that reduces the increased inflammation in chronic wounds and thus supports healing.
Anti-inflammatory hydrogels containing glycosaminoglycans, a class of naturally occurring carbohydrates, were combined with textile carriers to create an easily applicable and clinically useful form of the technology.
