Iranian researchers could produce a kind of wound care dressing that creates growth factor and heals variety of wounds and burns.

According to an ISCA report, wound healing is a complex biological process that requires cellular interactions between a variety of cells, including fibroblasts, myofibroblasts, smooth muscle cells, endothelial cells, keratinocytes and immune cells. These interactions are mediated by numerous factors such as growth factors, hormones, blood components and second messengers.

In this regard, a knowledge-based company, located in the Technology Tower in AmirKabir University of Technology, has succeeded to produce Collagen Matrix Dressing which has the similar structure of extracellular matrix and biopolymers, so it can create a natural environment for body cells and provide an optimal and stress free condition for cells.

This process would lead to the presence of growth factors and could increase their sustainability therefore, the rate of cell division as well as the process of wound healing will be increased.
