Small But Mighty: Changing The Healing Pathways Through Innovative Nanotechnological Strategies

There are many reports on the management of problematic skin wounds with a compromised skin barrier. The burden is growing rapidly, with almost six million patients in the US, it is a market of almost $25 billion annually. Many interdisciplinary strategies have been developed so far, among which are recently developed nanotechnological strategies offering multifunctional
