Role of protease targets in wound healing uncertain

Protease modulating therapies are used to assist in venous leg ulcer closure. However, a recent systematic review of the evidencesuggests a need to question the biomarker’s importance and further role in the future of targeted chronic wound healing therapies … Earlier research reported in the literature has suggested that reducing protease levels can improve venous leg ulcer healing beyond the use of first-line treatments, such as compression, according to Maggie Westby, Ph.D., research fellow in the School of Health Sciences at the University
