Frontispiece published in Advanced Science

A frontispiece was published in the current issue of Advanced Science (volume 8, issue 18) featuring the article Chemokine-capturing wound contact layer rescues dermal healing by Lucas Schirmer, Passant Atallah, Uwe Freudenberg and Carsten Werner.

Excessive inflammation impeding the healing of chronic wounds can be rescued through selective scavenging of chemokines by multiarmed poly(ethylene glycol)-glycosaminoglycan (starPEG-GAG) hydrogels. Herein, a textile-starPEG-GAG composite wound contact layer capable of dampening the excessive inflammatory signals without affecting the levels of pro-regenerative growth factors is reported and tested in a large animal (porcine) model of human wound healing disorders.
