Alternative to antibiotics in wound care

Infected wounds

The burden of chronic wounds and wound treatment is rapidly growing. Wound infections can compromise the healing process and let wounds develop into chronic wounds, with a significant negative impact on health-related quality of life. Even worse, they bear the risk of amputation and lethal sepsis. Additionally, infected wounds provide a great burden to the health care system.
