Klimis-Zacas shares wild blueberry wound-healing properties with WABI, WMTW
WABI (Channel 5) and WMTW (Channel 8) reported on Dorothy Klimis-Zacas’ discovery that wild blueberries have properties that significantly promote cell migration and speed of wound closure. The University of Maine professor of clinical nutrition will work to develop a topical cream with embedded bioactive compounds for the commercial marketplace. The CBS affiliate in Denver shared information from WABI’s story, and WHOM (94.9) shard information from WMTW’s story. Mainebiz also reported that Maine’s wild blueberries may have a new commercial potential — for use in a biomedical product that would treat wounds.
