Abstract

Chronic leg ulcers remain problematic in many patients despite the advances in wound management seen in the last decade. Wounds that remain resistant to treatment have detrimental consequences like high healthcare and social costs and patients’ impaired quality of life. Irrespective of the type of wound and patients’ underlying diseases, a common feature of chronic ulcers is represented by persistent inflammation, associated with cytokines upregulation, a factor contributing to reduce the ability of the wound to switch to a normal healing process.
