Human body has the ability to heal wounds such as cuts or scrape by itself. But, in the diabetic, skin disorder, and vascular disease affected individuals the ability to heal is lot slower and difficult. This is likely to cause infection and have a dramatic impact on the quality of life. The management cost of these chronic wounds is expensive fare for the healthcare systems as in the U.S. almost 10-20 billion dollars per year are being spent. It is thus mindboggling how little is known about the wounds turning chronic and making it difficult for the development of effective wound healing therapeutics.

Recently, a team from Thomas Jefferson University has found a technique to sample the cells in the wound by using the cast-off wound dressings. This new means is believed to open a new door for understanding the cellular composition of wounds to differentiate the wounds that will heal and those that will turn chronic. Additionally, the selection or the development of targeted therapies will also become easier. It is very challenging to study wound healing in humans as there is will little knowledge available in terms of humans compared to that of animal skin. Researchers believe that this new finding is a boon for the epidermolysis bullosa (EB) patients who agonize from blisters and lesions that heal, turn chronic, or develop into aggressive skin cancer.

Enticingly, the researchers have been able to innately rope vital information that the dressings showed presence of a variety of immune cells such as granulocytes, lymphocytes, or neutrophils and monocytes or macrophages. And the acute or chronic wound dressings showed higher levels of neutrophils as they are the first line of defense. However, the higher levels of neutrophils are found to stall the healing process and lead to chronicity. Furthermore, studying the genetic materials of the immune cells inside the wound will help better predict the healing or chronicity.
