CONCLUSIONS: This retrospective study further supports previous evidence that acellular fish skin graft promotes wound healing in DFUs. In particular, a rapid increase in wound healing was observed during the initial 4 weeks following graft application. This study and review of the literature indicated that fish graft encourages wound healing by enabling the wound to transition from a chronic to an acute stage of healing.

r N Abstract PURPOSE: To test whether Schirmer test (ST) results are associated with topical or systemic medication and to evaluate the distribution of tear fluid quantity in a 3-min and 5-min ST. METHODS: The Gutenberg Health Study is a population-based, prospective, observational cohort study in Germany. ST was assessed in a sub-cohort of 1,999 participants. ST was performed under topical anesthesia for 5 min (ST-5) or of 3 min (ST-3). Anthropometric factors, systemic diseases, use of systemic and eye medications were recorded. We used multivariable quantile regression analysis to assess the influence o...

Dysregulation of glucose homeostasis and elevated glucose levels are central etiologies of diabetes, a medical condition commonly encountered [1]. WHO has projected that the incidence of diabetes will continue to rise around the globe [2]. An important complication associated with diabetes is poor wound healing that may lead to ulceration, infection, and ultimately amputation [3]. Clearly, understanding the mechanisms responsible for poor diabetic wound healing is an important public health issue that needs to be addressed.
