New technology for accelerated wound healing discovered

Published: 2018-02-06

Researchers at Uppsala University and SLU led by Mia Phillipson, Uppsala University/SciLifeLab, have discovered a new way to speed up wound healing. The technology, published in PNAS, involves using lactic acid bacteria as vectors to produce and deliver a human chemokine on site in the wounds.

“We have developed a drug candidate, a next-generation biologic medical product, and are now publishing the fantastic results from the preclinical part where wound healing was strongly accelerated in mice,” says Mia Phillipson.
