Biofilm Modified Macrophage Phenotype and Function in Diabetic Wound Healing

2017-09-05 21:38:21 | BioPortfolio


The aim is to study the microenvironment of chronic biofilm infection in diabetic wounds which shows deregulated immune cells responses and biofilm interaction resulting in delayed/impaired/non wound healing. We seek to understand immune evasion strategy of biofilms and study mechanisms which biofilm modify macrophages phenotype and functions in such wounds


Specific Objective:

1. Determine if functionally active macrophage isolated from biofilm-infected diabetic wounds show extra cellular matrix degrading phenotype causing wound collagen degradation

2. Understand by investigating whether increased presence of ECM degrading wound macrophage phenotypes in biofilm infected human diabetic wounds are associated with reduced wound collagen levels and increased wound recurrence End goal will be to understand the mechanism in which biofilm modulates the wound macrophage phenotype and function

Study Design




Finger prick test for HbA1c measurement, Punch Biopsy, Vac Sponge Collection, Ankle Brachial Index

Disease involving the ULNAR NERVE from its origin in the BRACHIAL PLEXUS to its termination in the hand. Clinical manifestations may include PARESIS or PARALYSIS of wrist flexion, finger flexion, thumb adduction, finger abduction, and finger adduction. Sensation over the medial palm, fifth finger, and ulnar aspect of the ring finger may also be impaired. Common sites of injury include the AXILLA, cubital tunnel at the ELBOW, and Guyon's canal at the wrist. (From Joynt, Clinical Neurology, 1995, Ch51 pp43-5)
