Microalgae extracts for chronic ulcer healing
Chronic ulcers demonstrate a reduced capacity to heal by themselves, leading to increased morbidity and mortality. Efforts to improve the healing process focus on preventing infection and minimising inflammation and tissue damage. The EU-funded Dual-NanoMAE project will take advantage of the medical properties of green microalgae extract. Scientists plan to combine these extracts in a new therapeutic lipid nanoparticle for ulcer therapy after validating their safety and healing properties on a 3D skin ulcer model. Their antibacterial action will be tested on a biofilm infected ulcer model based on human cells.
