- Biologically active dressings that take an active part in the wound healing process to achieve expeditious healing but at cost effective rate is an unmet clinical need
- A major focus is the treatment of chronic wounds and prevention of complications such as amputations,
- Medicated biomaterial-based dressings containing various therapeutic agents targeting different phases of wound healing will be discussed.
