New approach to wound healing may be easy on skin, but hard on bacteria

A postdoctoral researcher at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, described an experimental approach to wound healing that could take advantage of silver's antibacterial properties, while sidestepping the damage silver can cause to cells needed for healing. The researcher crafted an ultra-thin material carrying a precise dose of silver. In tests in lab dishes, the low concentration of silver killed 99.9999 percent of the bacteria, but did not damage cells called fibroblasts that are needed to repair a wound.
