Klimis-Zacas interviewed for MedicalResearch.com

MedicalResearch.com interviewed Dorothy Klimis-Zacas, professor of clinical nutrition at the School of Food and Agriculture, about her research on the wound-healing power of phenolic extract from wild blueberries. Klimis-Zacas said, “Discovering new therapeutic modalities for wound healing, especially plant extracts will aid millions of people by decreasing chronic wound complications and amputation with subsequent effects on decreasing health care costs in the US and globally. This product will improve the quality of life and decrease hospital stays thus decreasing medical costs in people suffering from diabetic wounds, pressure ulcers, burns, severe trauma, venous leg ulcers, post-surgical wounds, scarring and other chronic health conditions.”
