Tehran, YJC. Researchers as Amir Kabir University have in a pioneering operation used 2 and 3D scaffolds to treat burns and diabetic ulcers.

Shiva Asbadi, project manager, in interview with ISNA said that in deep, second and third degree burns as well as diabetic ulcers, the epidermis, dermis and hypodermis layers are injured.

"Usually,” she added "people who suffer such injuries face the threat of death due to losing some depth of the skin fabric which leads to lack of oxygen and infection; and advanced treatments for such injuries are heavily expensive.”

Providing comments on the research she and coworkers conducted she said "In this project, we used the current technological findings as well as advanced tissue engineering notions to produce the 2 and 3D nano-scaffolds which are much more effective and economical for such injuries.”

"The in vitro and in vivo experiments indicated that the technology is highly effective in treating deep injuries which leads to the formation of fresh, 3D tissue without any fibrosis.”

Asbadi further stated that the materials used in the research are completely adaptable to human tissues and leave no pathophysiological symptoms.
