Wound dressing will have Vitamin D - should reduce infections - July 2018

Nanofibre wound dressings may help tackle surgical site infections Press Release

  • "Prepared using electrospinning, the wound dressings were able to trigger the production of an antimicrobial peptide called hCAP18/LL37 at the site of infection. The peptide disrupts the membranes of microbes and destroys them."
  • “The mechanism of these dressings to improve immune responses instead of containing single-target antimicrobial compounds is expected to reduce the risk of drug resistance.”
  • "Findings revealed that the dressings could deliver vitamin D on a sustained basis over four weeks"
  • “Electrospun nanofibre wound dressings offer significant advantages over hydrogels or sponges for local drug delivery. They provide several functional and structural advantages, including scar-free healing.”
  • {In the US, approximately 300,000 patients develop an infection within 30 days of their surgical operation per year, more than 13,000 of which die from."
