    St. Elizabeth's Hospital opened an outpatient wound care center to treat patients with chronic or nonhealing wounds. The staff will focus on helping patients manage underlying conditions, such as diabetes, that impair wound healing, the program director said. The Wound Care Center plans to add hyperbaric oxygen therapy soon. Belleville News-Democrat (Ill.) (2/6) LinkedInFacebookTwitterEmail this Story
  • Abbreviated treatment with new antibiotic may clear skin infections
    Bacterial skin infections in patients who took 200 milligrams of tedizolid phosphate daily for six days cleared as well as infections in patients who took 600 milligrams of linezolid twice daily for 10 days in a Phase III clinical trial. Rates of side effects were similar in both groups. The findings were published in the Journal of the American Medical Association. HealthDay News (2/12) LinkedInFacebookTwitterEmail this Story

  • Experimental device might help doctors detect pressure ulcers
    A Pittsburgh-area doctor has launched a crowdfunding campaign to further develop a device to help doctors detect early-stage pressure ulcers. Dr. Sanna Gaspard initially developed the device to detect pressure ulcers in people with dark skin, but she says it offers a more quantitative assessment of tissue health than conventional techniques in skin of any color.

    Researchers are getting closer to developing topical gene therapies for skin cancers, chronic wounds, psoriasis and other skin diseases, says Amy Paller, chair of dermatology at Northwestern University. New genome sequencing technology will make genetic diagnosis less expensive and possibly predict individual patients' responses to new drugs, she said, speaking at the Hawaii Dermatology Seminar.
