–including diabetic, venous, arterial and pressure ulcers–are considered inherently difficult-to-heal and at risk of becoming chronic due to the underlying disease state or condition of the individual interfering with the normal healing process. Millions of people currently suffer from these types of wounds, and many more are likely to be affected in the future as the prevalence of the implicated underlying disease states and conditions continues to rise.

An estimated $5-7 billion is spent each year on the treatment of chronic wounds in the United States alone, and these costs are increasing at annual rate of 7-10%. Despite these expenditures and clinical efforts, many of these wounds fail to heal in a timely manner, increasing the risk of many undesirable consequences and complications such as local infection (including cellulitis and abscesses), bacteremia and sepsis, pain, osteomyelitis, dermatitis, possible malignancy, amputation and even death. The longer it takes for a wound to heal, the greater the likelihood of complications.

The factors that cause wounds to fail to heal are still the subject on ongoing research. However, the science is evolving rapidly and suggests new bioactive technologies will be the next stage of innovation in turning the sometimes elusive process of healing into a dependable reality.
