High-Resolution Spectral Analysis Accurately Identifies the Bacterial Signature in Infected Chronic Foot Ulcers in People With Diabetes

Will we soon see more visual diagnostics for wounds? Congratulations to our colleagues in Melbourne for these intriguing data. 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 […]

Can probiotics improve healing of diabetic foot ulcers? Results from a randomized controlled trial

This fascinating work from Mohseni and coworkers seems to support the contention that our bacterial overlords have more power over us than we’d like to let on. Perhaps we should further consider submitting? Patients with a diabetic foot ulcer who received probiotic supplementation for 12 weeks experienced faster wound healing coupled with an improved glycemic […]
