Burn injuries, trauma, and surgical procedures result in complex wounds, which can lead to pain, infection, and scarring. Management of complex wounds remains a critical challenge for the medical community and effective, localized treatments are [...]
We have recently developed a non-toxic, topically applied biosensor using solid lipid nanoparticles (SLN). This diagnostic platform is currently designed to continuously monitor hydrogen peroxide levels in skin. Overproduction of hydrogen peroxide is implicated in [...]
