Non-aspirin pain relievers may be a better choice for residents with chronic wounds, according to new research.
Non-aspirin pain relievers may be best for residents with chronic wounds, according to new study results.
Long-term care professionals might want to opt for non-aspirin pain relievers for residents with chronic wounds, as researchers have discovered that aspirin appears to suppress healing.
Caregivers might soon be able to heal seniors' chronic wounds by manipulating the bacteria that live on the skin, according to research out of the University of Manchester Healing Foundation Centre in England.
Diabetic foot ulcers and other chronic wounds might heal more quickly if they are exposed to gentle vibrations, according to new research from the University of Illinois-Chicago and Stony Brook University in New York.

Why do chronic wounds repair so slowly? Blame a toxic healing environment, new study results assert.
Multi-layer compression stockings promote more long-lasting healing of venous leg ulcers than traditional bandages, according to a recently published study.
Immune system cells in the skin promote wound healing by producing a particular molecule, according to newly published research. The discovery could lead to more effective treatments for diabetic ulcers and other chronic wounds common in the elderly.
Drexel University researchers have found a new method for treating chronic wounds: an ultrasound applicator that can be worn like an adhesive bandage.
Injecting a plasma protein called plasminogen around chronic diabetic wounds can lead to complete healing, according to new research from Umea University in Sweden.
Researchers recently identified a molecular "switch" mechanism that takes place during successful wound care healing. The discovery is likely to aid in the understanding of how wounds get better, and fuel preventive treatments.
