In the United States, about 65 million people need wound treatment annually, so it can be said that the global need for wound treatment preparations is high. The market for wound dressings is expected to expand further in the future, as the number of patients with pressure ulcer increases due to the aging of society. Currently, "surgical treatment", "treatment with a dressing", "drug therapy", and the like are performed to treat wounds. Among them, "treatment with a dressing", consisting in covering wounds with a protection, is very common in the medical field. Therefore, wound dressings made of new materials that can be easily handled by anyone and are functional are highly desirable.
This Special Issue will focus on various aspects of wound treatment, such as (1) status quo of wound healing therapy, (2) pharmacological approaches to wound treatment, (3) biopharmaceutical approaches, (4) pharmaceutical approaches, (5) development of devices to improve wound healing. The overall perception of current wound treatment strategies will also be discussed.Dr. Takehisa Hanawa
