Title: PREDICTIVE FACTORS FOR TIMING OF WOUND CLOSURE
Abstract:
The present invention relates to methods for treating an open wound. The levels of certain cytokines in serum and wound effluent from a human subject with an open wound are compared to cytokine levels in persons whose wounds were closed successfully or failed to close. The wound is surgically closed if the cytokines levels and wound history of the human subject are favorable. Alternatively, the wound is left open and additional biological samples are analyzed at a later date.
