Thrombin and thrombin peptides play a role in initiating tissue repair. The potential safety and efficacy of TP508 (Chrysalins) treatment of diabetic foot ulcers was evaluated in a 60-subject, prospective, randomized, double-blind, placebocontrolled phase I/II clinical trial.
A wound patient plan of care is not complete without assessing the need for nutritional support. Wound repair, provided ot os not hindered by systemic or local factors that delay healing, takes place pn a continuum-all cellular events in the wound repair process follow a predictable course and order.
Adequate debridement, control of infection, off-loading of pressure, and appropriate topical management are the most important interventions in treating nonhealing wounds.
