Abstract

Diabetic wound tissue repair and regeneration is a multi-step process that includes cell proliferation and migration, gas and moisture management, and inflammatory responses. However, current wound dressing designs lack consideration of the wound microenvironment of diabetic patients, making diabetic wound tissue repair a challenge. Here, we report a wound dressing (SSD-PG-PVA/KGM) with a porous structure and anti-oxidant properties for promoting diabetic wound tissue repair. First, the porous structure created by electrospinning technology encourages cell proliferation and migration in the wound while also providing breathability and moisture retention. Second, adding natural polyphenols (PG) and saikosaponins (SSDs) to the wound reduced reactive oxygen species levels and oxide stress. In vitro cell experiments showed that SSD-PG-PVA/KGM had good biocompatibility. Due to the biocompatibility, anti-oxidation ability, breathability, and moisturizing, SSD-PG-PVA/KGM could effectively promote the repair of diabetic wound tissue (the wound closure rate was 95.6% at 14 days).
