BACKGROUND Fibronectin has been shown to assist in wound healing. Impaired wound healing in diabetes mellitus is characterized by a reduction in plasma fibronectin (pFn) at the wound site. This study investigated whether topical application of pFn could improve the impaired wound healing in diabetic rats. MATERIALS AND METHODS Full-thickness skin wounds… CONTINUE READING
