Blickwinkel Q2 Coverbild

In this issue of BLICKWINKEL, we focus on a story that has connected humanity with insects and diseases for hundreds of years: green bottle fly larvae, which can promote wound healing. BRAIN has explored the connection and developed a biological wound management based on the Aurase® enzyme.

The number of chronic wounds is increasing on a global scale. They cause great human suffering and place a heavy burden on health care systems. At the same time there are accounts handed down for centuries of how bottle fly larvae promote wound healing. BRAIN’s research has succeeded in uniting the two sides of the story: the medical links between bottle fly larvae and wound healing have been successfully decoded and this knowledge has been transferred to gentle wound treatment products.
