Progressive tissue injury in burns is reduced by rNAPc2

Published inBurns, vol. 32, no. 8, p. 957-963
Publication date2006

Burn wounds are characterised by central necrosis surrounded by an area of stasis with compromised perfusion. Secondary aggravation of the burn wound due to ischaemia in the zone of stasis can also result in necrosis. This study aims to improve circulation in the zone of stasis by reducing microthrombus formation and thereby to reduce secondary aggravation.
