Advances in Wound Healing Materials Book Review:

Wound healing and wound care technologies are an ever expanding field with the advancement of materials science, biomedicine and tissue engineering. In the year 2011 the global wound care market generated US$ 6,500 million with an annual growth rate of 7.5%. The global advanced wound care products market share in 2023 is predicted to be approximately US$ 16,300 million.This book discusses the evolution of wound care devices and protocol over the years and different technologies being used in the present day wound care treatment. New strategies involving engineered tissues and drug delivery to mimic the natural wound healing milieu are discussed. The use of cytokine growth factors enhances chronic wound healing particularly for burn wound healing. Prevention of scarring, keloid formation or contractures and a cosmetically acceptable healing is a challenge even now.Skin tissue engineering was the first successfully clinically applied product in regenerative medicine. Bioengineered skin seeded with fibroblast and keratinocyte cells could form a permanent solution that do not require skin grafting or as a temporary cover for burns prior to grafting. Cell attachment, proliferation and tissue formation in a three-dimensional porous scaffold can be engineered for specific application. These cell based skin substitutes had significant wound healing and scar reducing effect on patients.Gene-activated dermal equivalent is another emerging approach for the healing of full thickness incision wounds with good remodelling of the skin. The book also describes similar latest developments on wound healing science and research.The target audiences are wound care professionals, researchers working on wound healing technology and skin tissue engineering; as well as graduate students and industries that need to understand the aspects of wound healing and technological orientation towards successful commercialisation.
