Microbial predictors of healing and short-term effect of debridement on the microbiome of chronic wounds

Samuel Verbanic, Yuning Shen, Juhee Lee, John Deacon & Irene Chen
Chronic wounds represent a large and growing disease burden. Infection and biofilm formation are two of the leading impediments of wound healing, suggesting an important role for the microbiome of these wounds. However, microbial taxa that may impact healing are poorly understood. Debridement is an effective treatment for chronic wounds, but the effect on the microbiome is unknown. Based on prior literature, we hypothesized that anaerobic organisms are exposed to the surface by debridement, contributing...
