In 2011, the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality awarded the Johns Hopkins Evidence-Based Practice Center a $475,000 project to carry out the research, which was led by Gerald Lazarus, M.D., founder of the Johns Hopkins Wound Healing Center and professor of dermatology and medicine at Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center; and Jonathan Zenilman, M.D., scientific director of the Wound Healing Center and professor of medicine and chief of the Division of Infectious Diseases at Johns Hopkins Bayview.
Results suggested that cadexomer iodine and collagen may also increase healing, says Lazarus. "That doesn't mean that other types of dressings don't work. It just means that there is no evidence yet on which treatments work the best," says Lazarus. Support stockings, he adds, must for now remain the standard of care for treating chronic venous ulcers.

Lazarus says the review also showed evidence is inconclusive about using systemic antibiotics unless there are demonstrated signs of infection. And it is also inconclusive about such surgical treatments as radiofrequency ablation, endovenous laser treatment and sclerotherapy helped healing, although surgical correction of underlying pathology did decrease recurrence of ulcers.
"There is a critical need for well-designed research studies to compare the current minimally invasive surgical interventions to the gold standard of care, compression therapy," he says.
Lazarus says, "The review should serve as a means to bring the wound healing community together to improve the situation.

"There is a very limited amount of well-developed information about how you deal with wounds," co-investigator Dr. Gerald Lazarus tells the Health Blog. A dermatology professor and founder of the wound center at Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center, Lazarus says the focus of the review will be on chronic lower extremity wounds, which can be complications of leg ulcers and diabetes and can be exacerbated by obesity and poor nutrition. But he expects what they learn to be applicable to other types of wounds such as pressure ulcers or bed sores, as well.
Close to seven million Americans suffer from chronic wounds and more than $25 billion is spent annually on their care, according to a 2009 study.
Among the issues that are debated in wound care is the role of antibiotics, which can promote development of resistant organisms in the wounds, and the most appropriate wound dressings, which range widely in price. Expensive oxygen chambers - known as hyperbaric therapy - are good for some kind of wounds, but may not be appropriate for all types, Lazarus says.
"Wounds that will not heal are frequently signs of larger and more complicated health problems, and can take a toll on patients far beyond the pain and discomfort of the wound," Lazarus says.

Dr. Gerald Lazarus is a Professor of Dermatology and Medicine at the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine and Founder of the Johns Hopkins Wound Center. He has had a life-long interest in the etiology and therapy of wounds. He has served as the Callaway Professor and Chairman of Dermatology at Duke and the Hartzell Professor and Chairman of Dermatology at the University of Pennsylvania.

Before coming to Hopkins he spent 3 years living in Beijing, China as a consultant on health care reform to the minister of Health of China and the President of the Peking University Medical College. In 2002 he came to Hopkins where his research focused on the biome of chronic wounds using Metagenomic techniques. Most recently he has focused on quality of care and in collaboration with the Evidence Based Practice Center at Hopkins evaluated the quality of information informing therapy of chronic venous ulcers. The team evaluated 10,066 articles and only 60 (0.06%) could be analyzed. He will discuss the status of venous ulcer research and suggestions for improvement.
