Acute protein-calorie malnutrition impairs wound healing: a possible role of decreased wound nitric oxide synthesis.

Abstract

BACKGROUND Nitric oxide is synthesized in wounds. Systemic inhibition of wound nitric oxide synthesis decreases wound collagen accumulation and wound mechanical strength. The role of nitric oxide during impaired healing is not known. In a model of impaired wound healing induced by acute protein-calorie malnutrition, we correlated wound healing parameters… (More)
