Featured article: Synthesis of GO-QAS nanocomposite with synergistic antibacterial activity to promote infected wound healing

The GO-QAS nanocomposite exhibits excellent biocompatibility and synergistic antibacterial ability against multidrug resistant bacteria through not only mechanical membrane perturbation, including wrapping, bacterial membrane insertion, and bacterial membrane perforation, but also oxidative stress induction. Notably, GO-QAS topically applied on infected wounds maintained highly efficient antibacterial activity and accelerated the healing process of infected wounds by promoting re-epithelialization and granulation tissue formation. In the future, GO-QAS nanocomposite could be applied as a promising antimicrobial agent for infected wound management and antibacterial wound dressing synthesis.

Aims and scope

Burns & Trauma is an open access, peer-reviewed journal publishing the latest developments in basic, clinical and translational research related to burns and traumatic injuries. With a special focus on prevention efforts, clinical treatment and basic research in developing countries, the journal welcomes submissions in various aspects of biomaterials, tissue engineering, stem cells, critical care, immunobiology, skin transplantation, prevention and regeneration of burns and trauma injury.

Society affiliations

Burns & Trauma is the official journal of Chinese Burn Association, Chinese Burn Care and Rehabilitation Association and Chinese Society for Scar Medicine.

The publication costs for Burns & Trauma are covered by the Institute of Burn Research, Southwest Hospital, so authors do not need to pay an article-processing charge for each article accepted for publication.
