Clinical Aspects of Acute and Chronic Wound Healing: Swine As Preclinical Model For Developing Therapies For Skin Wound HealingBy Noble Life Sciences
Skin serves as a barrier between the external environment and the underlying tissues. When the integrity of the skin is disrupted this barrier is compromised. In order to prevent further damage or infection, proper wound healing should occur immediately.
It is estimated that wounds account for approximately 4% of all health system costs. Therefore, it is essential to study the process of wound healing with the right set of tools and research models to develop protective and restorative interventions.
