from Medical Xpress
From May 19:
Suramin, a 100-year old drug used to treat sleeping sickness, has been repurposed to fight oral mucositis and diabetic foot ulcers, according to University at Buffalo-supported research. The breakthrough, led by researchers at the University of Arizona with the support of Keith Kirkwood, DDS, Ph.D., Centennial Endowed Chair and professor of oral biology in the UB School of Dental Medicine, has the potential to benefit thousands of patients whose current healing options are either partially effective or painful and invasive.
