Moisture Management in Wound Care: Highlighting MVTR in Transparent Film Dressings

In Brief

A wound can be described or defined in many ways: by its source, anatomical location and appearance, whether acute or chronic, by presenting symptoms, and by the method of closure. In fact, all of these descriptions serve a critical purpose in the assessment and appropriate treatment and management of the wound. Successful wound management seeks symptom resolution and, if viable, complete healing. Managing skin wound care involves supporting the damaged tissue by promoting restoration through the formation of connective tissue and re-growth of the epithelium. Optimum conditions for wound healing involve creating a desirable micro-environment in which an ideal moisture content is one of the most important factors.

Flexible Materials Preferred in Wound Care & Closure

In Brief

In wound care management, the primary objective is complete healing. This is attained through thoughtful planning of patient care for reducing the loss of necessary fluids from the wound, accelerating wound healing, and minimizing pain and infection.

Biosensors Benefiting from Newly Created Protein Polymer Films

In Brief

The biosensor market is seeing tremendous growth, partly due to the aging population and the increasing number of people with diabetes and other chronic diseases that require constant monitoring.  The market was valued at $15.6 billion in 2016 and is set to grow at a compound annual growth rate of 7.9 percent through 2020. Recent numbers put the market at $26 billion by 2022. The rising need for miniature diagnostic and monitoring devices is driving the need for advancements in materials. One of these advancements was recently created by Michigan State University Researchers (MSU). Their teams created multilayer protein polymer films by mixing dendrimers (tree-like polymers) and proteins to spontaneously produce multilayer films. How will this material be used to build more effective biosensors?
