”Time heals all wounds...... but wounds heal faster with Lactobacillus” is the title of a commentary to our preclinical results (Vågesjö et al. 2018 PNAS) published by the very prestigious journal Cell-Host and Microbe. The authors summarizes our demonstration of a feasible and translatable therapeutic approach acceleration of wound healing with topical application of CXCL12-producing Lactobacilli and applauds the approach and the first steps in the drug development program. Chronic non-healing wounds represent a significant clinical problem and cost the healthcare system $19 billion annually. Our developed drug candidate being an advanced therapeutic medicinal product, is in the article referred to as a ”promising technology for the unsolved problem of delayed cutaneous wound healing”.
