Effect of oxidized regenerated cellulose/collagen matrix on proteases in wound exudate of patients with diabetic foot ulcers.

Abstract

PURPOSE The aim of this study was to investigate the influence of oxidized regenerated cellulose/collagen matrix on the concentration and activity of gelatinases, elastase, and plasmin in wound exudate. SUBJECTS AND SETTING The study included 32 patients with diabetic foot ulcers. Ten patients with a mean age of 66 ± 9 years (mean ± SD) were treated with… (More)
