from Forge Media
Researchers in the University of Sheffield’s Department of Materials Science and Engineering have developed a cotton-based dressing featuring a crucial new element: a chemical agent that promotes the formation of new blood vessels. The development of new blood vessels, a process called angiogenesis, is a vital stage in the healing process, but one that is often impaired in chronic wounds like burns and diabetic ulcers.
