Abstract

Silver-containing topical agents are used to help prevent infectious complications in wound therapy. Toxicity from topical silver agent exposure was initially reported in 1975 and was clinically characterized by granulocytopenia. Currently, the data regarding potential toxicity associat...read more

Blood And Marrow Transplantation

The use of hematopoietic stem cell transplantation or blood and marrow transplantation (bmt) is on the increase worldwide. BMT is used to replace damaged or destroyed bone marrow with healthy bone marrow stem cells. Here is the latest research on bone and marrow transplantation.

Wound Healing

Wound healing is a complex biologic process that involves the integration of inflammation, mitosis, angiogenesis, synthesis, and remodeling of the extracellular matrix. Here is the latest research.

Neutrophils

Neutrophils are an essential component of the innate immune response and a major contributor to inflammation. Here is the latest research on neutrophils.

Inflammatory Bowel Disease

Inflammatory bowel diseases (IBD), Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis, arise due to chronic inflammation of the gastrointestinal tract. Here is the latest research.

Wound Healing: Cells and Signals

Wound healing involves many cells including, platelets, neutrophils, macrophages and fibroblasts. These molecules release cytokines such as interleukins, tumor necrosis factor alpha and growth factors that largely manage the inflammatory phase of healing and promote the recruitment of additional cells. Here is the latest research on wound healing cells and signals.
