Abstract:


Wound healing is a complex and never-ending process that involves numerous mediators, enzymatic cascades that are directly or indirectly involved in the mechanism. So, it becomes necessary to closely examine critical factors such as gaseous exchange, a moist environment, anti- microbial activity, and exudation liquids' absorption while designing wound dressings. There is a heap of wound dressings available for human use, but they all are way apart from the ideal dressing. The use of biopolymers may be a solution to tackle the difficulties such as combining with growth factors and cells that can trigger wound healing. This article reviews such therapies for wound healing application.
