Technique for Faster Wound Healing Developed

Cooperation of Russian biologists and physicists resulted in a new method for better and faster healing of wounds.
      Healing wounds is a slow and complicated process. Traditional drug treatment is often not effective enough, that is why researchers keep improving existing methods and inventing new techniques for helping people.
      Russian physicists developed hollow-cathode lamps, with emit low-intensity radiation. Emission spectrum of such lamps consists of thin lines, typical for atomic and ionic spectra of elements, from which a cathode was made. Researchers found out that radiation from lamps with cathode made of magnesium and copper, stimulated migration of mentioned elements in an organism and cured inflammation.
      Tests on laboratory rats showed that irradiation with these lamps helped cuts heal faster. Lamps also promoted faster skin structure recovery, including sebaceous glands and hair follicles. Scientists think that irradiation with these lamps promoted natural immunity, accelerated recovery of deep skin layers and stimulated wound healing. Mechanisms of this process are still not clear, however, researchers believe that metals form complexes with enzymes metalloproteinases, known to affect healing of wounds.
