Nanodevices could be the answer to healing chronic wounds

The wound care market is estimated to be worth $35.0 billion, and has been showing strong growth globally. Wound care devices range from simple bandages to complex wound management technology, as the wound healing process can be difficult to manage.

Medical Device Industry Landscape In Asia-Pacific

GlobalData's APAC Medical Devices Industry Landscape – 2022 free study breaks down the APAC medical devices market by segment and region and includes insights on local and global competitors, pipeline product developments, clinical trials studies, and significant deals in the industry. The APAC medical device industry witnessed significant developments, launches, implementations, and adoption of new medical device technologies in the past decade, however the high cost of devices, regulatory hurdles, reimbursement pressure, and healthcare budget constraints have challenged market expansion across various territories and segments. APAC is the fastest growing regional market for medical device clinical trials, with China and Japan emerging as major clinical trial hotspots. The growth in medical device clinical trials in the APAC region is attributed to an increase in research partnerships between biopharma companies and clinical research organizations (CROs). This report also provides an in-depth analysis of the medical device market's opportunities and challenges, the influence of COVID-19 on the market, and government activities aimed to develop the APAC medical device market.

Some wounds can become chronic as a result of diseases such as diabetes, and require complex monitoring and care. However, researchers have begun to discover ways to speed up wound healing, conceivably at the click of a button.

Using near-infrared light and a nanodevice, researchers were able to guide stem cells to the site of an injury in order to promote healing in lab mice. The nanodevice uses a specially designed DNA molecule to bind to a special receptor, called an MET receptor, which is present at the wound site and essential to healing. The receptors are linked together when the nanodevice responds to light and releases the specially designed DNA sequence. Lab mice that were given the light-activated treatment showed signs of increased muscle regeneration at the wound site.

In the future, traditional wound management might be augmented with light stimulation therapies. With an ever-increasing patient pool suffering from chronic wounds, cell-based devices could become an important element of wound closure by addressing the source of difficult-to-heal wounds at the molecular level.
