Healing chronic wounds: the potential use of hypothermic processing of amniotic tissue to treat chronic wounds
MetadataShow full item record
Chronic diabetic foot ulcers, venous leg ulcers and pressure ulcers affect a large subset of the United State population yet they remain a challenge for physicians to treat. There are many different types of products on the market for the treatment of chronic wounds. Some use living cells but only two are FDA approved to heal chronic wounds. A new type of product recently garnered attention in the wound care market because it also contains living cells: hypothermically stored amniotic tissue products. Hypothermically stored amniotic tissue is unique because it maintains living cells and offers the benefits of containing signaling molecules and maintaining an intact extra cellular matrix. While there are other types of amniotic or placental tissue products in the wound care market, they are processed by dehydration or cryopreservation which limits their capacities for maintaining living cells. This thesis will explore the potential for hypothermically processed amniotic tissue products to treat chronic wounds.
