A new approach to drug delivery.

Wound Care

The field of wound care includes a variety acute and chronic conditions, such as diabetic ulcers, venous stasis ulcers, pressure ulcers, surgical/radiation wounds and traumatic wounds.  It is a general practice to cover wounds with some form of dressing or bandage, and many of these conditions also require medical treatment to prevent infection, promote wound closure and minimize scarring. 

LayerBio is developing technology to incorporate medications directly into wound dressings to ensure continuous delivery of the drugs at the site of action. By improving the efficiency of drug delivery to the target tissue, this approach may improve drug efficacy and safety as well as offer greater convenience for the patients and caregivers who provide wound care.
