WOUND DRESSING WITHOUT MAGGOTS

Scientists in the United Kingdom have developed a new wound dressing that could bring the benefits of maggot therapy to patients without putting live Lucilia sericata maggots into non-healing wounds. The joint research project of Stephen Britland from Bradford University and David Pritchard of Nottingham University included colleagues from the Bradford-based biotechnology company AGT Sciences Ltd. It describes development and preliminary testing in laboratory cell cultures of the new hydrogel dressing in a report for publication in the Oct. 6 issue of the ACS bimonthly journal Biotechnology Progress.
