Study shows how frog-skin secretions stimulate wound healing
Historical medicinal beliefs say that rubbing a frog across a wound encourages the wound to heal, and research has shown that antimicrobial peptides secreted by the African clawed frog inhibit the growth of bacteria, fungi and amebae in wounds. A study published in PLOS ONE says a derivative of a frog-skin AMP stimulated migration of human keratinocytes to a wound by entering the cells and stimulating genetic changes. Popular Science (6/23)

Imaging system helps doctors devise wound treatment plans
A microfluorescent imaging system is allowing wound care specialists to see blood flow in small vessels to and around ulcerations and wounds. The technology prevents removal of healthy tissue and helps doctors develop treatment plans, Dr. Tyson Green said. KING-TV (Seattle) (6/17)

Study: Vascular flow reserve predicts wound healing after endovascular treatment
Assessing vascular flow reserve predicted wound healing in patients who had endovascular therapy to treat critical limb ischemia, researchers reported in the journal Circulation: Cardiovascular Interventions. The researchers determined that a vascular flow reserve value of 3.6 or higher was the threshold for complete wound healing after endovascular therapy. Healio (free registration) (6/22)
