Hard-to-heal wounds can be caused by persistent infections or an excess of inflammatory cytokines, proteases and oxidants, and can severely impact the quality of life (QoL) of patients. Due to the paucity of effective treatments and increased resistance to antibiotics, new and improved therapies are required to resolve infections and to simultaneously enhance the healing trajectory. Medical grade honey (MGH) may be a novel and effective treatment approach.
