Wound healing and scarring
Currently about 1-4% of the population of the western world suffers from chronic wounds. In Austria alone, about 200,000 to 300,000 people are affected.
As the number of chronic diseases is simultaneously increasing with the increase in life expectancy, the number of people suffering from chronic wounds will also rise significantly, subsequently leading to immense treatment and general health care costs.
Most treatment concepts are limited to minimizing disease symptoms as healing is often not possible yet. This is the vital starting point for COREMED.
COREMED has the long-term goal to better understand wound healing processes and to identify new ways to support these processes. In collaborative research projects, COREMED provides the expertise to enable the development of new products and therapies and to demonstrate the effectiveness of already existing therapies.
