Here is more cogent information to support the contention that we might consider adding bacteria rather than just removing it. To (again) use a military analogy, what one might describe as "clear, hold, and build" rather than just "clear". A Review of Immunomodulatory Reprogramming by Probiotics in Combating Chronic and Acute Diabetic Foot Ulcers (DFUs)... Continue Reading →

Transcriptomic Fingerprint of Bacterial Infection in Lower Extremity Ulcers @ALPSLimb #ActAgainstAmputation

Important work from our Danish and Aussie colleagues Abstract Background and purpose: Clinicians and researchers utilize subjective, clinical classification systems to stratify lower extremity ulcer infections for treatment and research. The purpose of this study was to examine whether these clinical classifications are reflected in the ulcer's transcriptome. Methods: RNA-sequencing (RNA-seq) was performed on biopsies from clinically... Continue Reading →

Metagenomics to Identify Pathogens in Diabetic Foot Ulcers and the Potential Impact for Clinical Care –

Diabetic foot ulcers are a growing problem and clinicians are limited by their reliance on conventional culture. Metagenomic sequencing technology provides an unparalleled viewpoint of the polymicrobial constituency of DFU. The microbiome techniques used to study the microbial constituency of DFU ma … — Read on pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/34152440/ We are still in a bit of a... Continue Reading →
