Topical treatment with TGFbeta3 to facilitate skin and corneal wound healing in diabetic patients
Background: Diabetes affects approximately 170 million people worldwide, including 20.8 million in the USA, and by 2030 these numbers are projected to double. Diabetics often experience slow or limited wound healing. Slow wound healing allows longer time for the development of infections and can contribute to the formation of bed sores and ulcers...
