New biological techniques and a revival of interest in both acute and chronic wound healing have led to an enormously improved understanding of the cellular and chemical complexities of the healing process. Exciting developments in the evolution of epidermal biology are creating new opportunities for research and clinical applications in wound healing.

Edited by an expert team of researchers and clinicians, The Epidermis in Wound Healing combines current information with the latest research results to provide a complete picture of the most recent advances in the field. The book focuses on biological advances that improve knowledge and stimulate development in wound therapy. The chapter authors address quantifying repair in the epidermis, biological and clinical elements of wound healing, state-of-the-art approaches to understanding and treating wounds, and gene therapy during wound repair. A discussion on the underlying chemistry of acute and chronic healing describes the special challenges presented by chronic wounds.

Featuring the most up-to-date information available, the book chronicles the progress and practices in the field of wound therapy over the past 30 years. This reference will be an essential tool in the generation of innovations and applications in epidermal biology.
