Title: PREDICTIVE FACTORS FOR SUCCESSFUL WOUND CLOSURE
Abstract:
The present invention relates to methods of determining if a subject has an increased risk of developing unsuccessful wound closure (UWC) prior to the onset of any detectable symptoms thereof. The methods comprise analyzing at least one sample from the subject to determine a value of the subject's risk profile and comparing the value of the subject's risk profile with the value of a normal risk profile. A change in the value of the subject's risk profile, over or under normal values is indicative that the subject has an increased risk of having or developing symptoms associated with UWC prior to the onset of any detectable symptoms thereof.
