But recently new evidence-based treatments have emerged from multicentre, randomised, controlled trials. This article highlights those trials, and describes the current pharmacological management of the […]Read More Pharmacotherapy for Diabetic Foot Ulcers- Topical and Systemic

Diabetic foot infections are a major cause of hospitalization, and delayed treatment can lead to numerous complications. The aim of this research was to investigate high-resolution spectroscopy of the wound center and periwound area for real-time […]Read More High-Resolution Spectral Analysis Accurately Identifies the Bacterial Signature in Infected Chronic Foot Ulcers in People With Diabetes
