Topical Collagen-Based Biomaterials for Chronic Wounds: Rationale and Clinical Application.
Wounds and lesions can be caused by a variety of events, including surgery, traumatic injury, burns, abrasions and skin grafts. Healing of wounds may be difficult and may result in problems such as ulcers and septicemia. Of particular concern are chronic wounds, such as pressure sores and diabetic ulcers. The treatment of these conditions is of increasing importance as the population ages. The conventional cascade of biochemical processes which occurs in wound healing, involving hemostasis and inflammation, granulation tissue formation and reepithelization and remodeling, is disrupted in the case of chronic wounds due in part to the prolonged inflammatory response which occurs, and the release of destructive enzymes by inflammatory cells.

Abstract: Collagen is a key component of a healing wound. In this review, a general description of the wound healing process is provided.

Metrics details. A wound that does not heal in the orderly stages of the healing process or does not heal within 3 months is considered a chronic wound. Wound healing is impaired when the wound remains in the inflammatory stage for too long.

However, the spontaneous healing of adult skin eventually results in the formation of epithelialized scar and scar contracture repair , which might distort the tissues and cause lifelong deformities and disabilities. This clinical evidence suggests that wound closure attained by means of skin regeneration, instead of repair, should be the true goal of burn wound management. The traditional concept of temporary wound dressings, able to stimulate skin healing by repair, is thus being increasingly replaced by the idea of temporary scaffolds, or regenerative templates, able to promote healing by regeneration. As wound dressings, polymeric hydrogels provide an ideal moisture environment for healing while protecting the wound, with the additional advantage of being comfortable to the patient, due to their cooling effect and non-adhesiveness to the wound tissue.
Cumulative proportion of healed ulcers during the week study. Complete wound healing tended to be higher in patients treated with Promogran, a wound dressing consisting of collagen and oxidized regenerated cellulose Study dressings are described in the "Protocol" subsection of the "Patients and Methods" section. Life-table estimate for the time to complete wound healing in patients with an ulcer of a duration less than 6 months. Arch Surg. The mean age of the patients was All patients had at least 1 diabetic foot ulcer.
A chronic wound is defined as a wound that has failed to re-epithelialize after 3 months. Unfortunately, chronic wounds often fail to close due to an incomplete progression through one or more stages of wound healing including inflammation, proliferation, and remodeling 1 , 2. Chronic wounds are often secondary to patient comorbidities, and can increase the cost of hospitalization and outpatient treatment. In our current era of increasing health care costs, an aging population, and increasing prevalence of obesity and diabetes, it is the important to identify novel therapeutic options for treating growing burden of chronic wounds 5. This failure to achieve adequate closure severely impacts patient quality of life due to significantly impaired mobility and chronic pain 5. Current standard of care SOC for treating chronic wounds includes sharp surgical debridement, well-timed revascularization, infection control, off-loading or complete pressure relief for diabetic foot and pressure ulcers PUs , and suitable compression for venous ulcers 2. Advances in cell biology and tissue engineering have led to an increase in the quantity and quality of biological wound dressings.
