Abstract:


Wound healing is a complex and dynamic phenomenon that involves the restoration of normal physiology and functioning of injured tissue. The process of wound healing is primarily regulated by various cytokines, inflammatory mediators, and growth factors at the molecular level. Any intervention in the normal wound healing process leads to further tissue damage, which in turn leads to delayed wound healing. Several natural, synthetic drugs and their combinations were used to restored and accelerate the wound healing process. However, the conventional delivery carriers were not much effective, and thus, nowadays, nanocarriers are gaining much popularity since they are playing a pivotal role in drug delivery. Since nanocarriers have their own applicability and benefits (enhance the bioavailability, site-specific targeting) so, they can accelerate wound healing more efficiently. This review briefly discussed about the various events that take place during the wound healing process with emphasis on various natural, synthetic, and combination drug therapy used for accelerating wound healing and the role of nanotechnology-based approaches in chronic wound healing.
