Severe burn injury is often accompanied by intestinal barrier dysfunction, which is closely associated with post-burn complications. Recent advances have provided new insights into the mechanisms and the therapeutic strategies of intestinal epithelial barrier dysfunction associated with severe burn injury. This review described the current knowledge of the mechanisms involved in intestinal barrier dysfunction in response to severe burn injury and the emerging therapies for treating intestinal barrier dysfunction following severe burn injury.
Growth factors are endogenous signaling molecules that regulate cellular responses for wound healing process. Growth factors have recently gained clinical importance for wound management. This review focused on currently approved growth factor therapies, including a sustained release system for growth factors, emerging therapies, and future research possibilities combined with surgical procedures.
