The orthodox view has been that reactive oxygen species are primarily damaging to cells. There is general agreement that while high (3%) doses of H2O2 may serve as a clinical disinfectant, its overall effect on healing is not positive. Current work shows that at very low concentrations, reactive oxygen species may regulate cellular signaling pathways by redox‐dependent mechanisms. Recent discoveries show that almost all cells of the wound microenvironment contain specialized enzymes that… 
Redox signals in wound healing.
TLDR
The objective of this review is to describe the current understanding of how redox-sensitive processes may drive dermal tissue repair, and the role of oxidants such as H2O2 as signaling messenger is compelling.
Revisiting the essential role of oxygen in wound healing.
TLDR
Given that many growth factors require ROS for their function, it is reasonable to assume that approaches to correct wound pO(2) will serve as an effective adjunct in treating chronic wounds, and there is evidence to suspect that the use of pressure and systemic pure O( 2) may not be essential in wound care.
Redox Signaling in Diabetic Wound Healing Regulates Extracellular Matrix Deposition.
TLDR
Redox-based therapeutics constitute a novel approach for the treatment of wounds in diabetes patients that deserve further investigation and have yielded promising results in preclinical studies.
Antioxidant Therapies for Wound Healing: A Clinical Guide to Currently Commercially Available Products
TLDR
The use of antioxidants for wound healing is promising, but only few animal studies and even fewer clinical studies are available, and the consumer is advised to scrutinize them for purity and contaminants prior to use.
Assessment of wound-site redox environment and the significance of Rac2 in cutaneous healing.
TLDR
It is demonstrated that the wound site is rich in oxidants, the levels of which peak 2 days postwounding in the inflammatory phase, and Rac2 significantly contributes to oxidant production at the wounds site and supports the healing process.
Redox for Repair: Cold Physical Plasmas and Nrf2 Signaling Promoting Wound Healing
TLDR
New links between plasma treatment of cells and tissues, and the perception and intracellular translation of plasma-derived reactive species via redox signaling pathways are discussed, which reanimates the idea of redox repair in physiological healing.
Protocols for topical and systemic oxygen treatments in wound healing.
TLDR
This chapter describes some of the currently used protocols for the oxygen therapy of wounds and concepts related to the measurement of responses to oxygen interventions,oxygen therapy for wound infection prophylaxis, systemic oxygen therapy, and topical oxygen therapy are described.
Xanthine Oxidoreductase Function Contributes to Normal Wound Healing
TLDR
It is demonstrated for the first time that XOR is abundant in wounds and participates in normal wound healing through effects on ROS production.
TOPICAL OXYGEN THERAPY INDUCES VASCULAR ENDOTHELIAL GROWTH FACTOR EXPRESSION AND IMPROVES CLOSURE OF CLINICALLY PRESENTED CHRONIC WOUNDS
TLDR
Evidence demonstrating that TO treatment benefits wound healing in patients suffering from chronic wounds is provided, with treatment with TO associated with an induction of VEGF expression in wound edge tissue and an improvement in wound size.
Gas Plasma-Augmented Wound Healing in Animal Models and Veterinary Medicine
TLDR
Animal models of wound healing have been vital in driving the development of these wound healing-promoting technologies, and this review summarizes the current knowledge and identifies open ends derived from in vivo wound models under gas plasma therapy.

Protection from reoxygenation injury by inhibition of rac1.
TLDR
It is shown that adenoviral-mediated gene transfer of a dominant negative rac1 gene product (N17rac1) inhibits the intracellular burst of reactive oxygen species (ROS) that occurs after reoxygenation of vascular smooth muscle cells and that inhibition of rac-dependent pathways may be a useful strategy for the prevention of reperfusion injury in ischemic tissues.

The efficacy of different antioxidants to favorably influence the molecular mechanisms implicated in human disease should be a critical determinant of its selection for clinical studies.
Inhibition of the Rac1 GTPase protects against nonlethal ischemia/reperfusion‐induced necrosis and apoptosis in vivo
TLDR
In an in vivo model of mouse hepatic isch‐emia/reperfusion injury, recombinant adenoviral expression of a dominant negative Rac1 (Rac1N17) completely suppressed the ischemia/rePerfusion‐induced production of reactive oxygen species and lipid peroxides, activation of nuclear factor‐kappa B, and resulted in a significant reduction of acute liver necrosis.
