Skin spray to treat chronic wounds

Studies of a new spray made up of skin cells carry promising news for patients with chronic leg wounds. The treatment essentially consists of liquid skin, which covers the wound with a mixture of skin cells and proteins.

Liquid skin could prove the best option for treating patients with chronic leg wounds, as US studies with a new type of spray-on skin showed the probability of sealing off the wound completely with this treatment was 83 % greater than through traditional treatment, accounting for the size of the wounds.

Patients are treated with compression bandages used in combination with the spray-on skin. The liquid skin then covers the wound with a mixture of skin cells and proteins, the latter affecting the coagulation of the blood.
