The wound bed score is a validated tool to monitor wound healing in chronic wounds, and depends on visual examination by trained personnel. This study describes the feasibility of adding some biochemical and immunohistochemical parameters to increase the objectivity and specificity of the wound bed score Method: Patients with chronic wounds on the lower leg with different durations were enrolled to assess the correlation between the wound bed score and specific wound-related biomarkers, namely MMP-9, MMP-2, NGAL, albumin, integrin α2/β1, and other histochemical (CD68, PK1, CD32, fractalkine, periostin) and immunocytochemical markers from biopsies and smears taken from wound edges and bed.

Abstract

The wound bed score is a validated tool to monitor wound healing in chronic wounds, and depends on visual examination by trained personnel. This study describes the feasibility of adding some biochemical and immunohistochemical parameters to increase the objectivity and specificity of the wound bed score Method: Patients with chronic wounds on the lower leg with different durations were enrolled to assess the correlation between the wound bed score and specific wound-related biomarkers, namely MMP-9, MMP-2, NGAL, albumin, integrin α2/β1, and other histochemical (CD68, PK1, CD32, fractalkine, periostin) and immunocytochemical markers from biopsies and smears taken from wound edges and bed.
