Scottish hospital harnesses 'plant power' with pioneering burns treatment made from pineapple
from The Scotsman
The Wallace Burns Unit at St John’s Hospital in Livingston, West Lothian, has brought in a new treatment called NexoBrid, which reduces the need for skin grafts and speeds up the recovery process. It involves the use of a tissue-dissolving enzyme called bromelain, made from the pineapple plant, which dissolves burnt tissue, and leaves just healthy tissue behind.
