    This is a very nicely done presentation, and it includes much of the latest research. I particularly appreciate the distinction drawn between infection and inflammation. As Nancy Morgan rightly points out, they are NOT at all the same, nor is their management.

    I would add that we are beginning to learn more about commensal (helpful) organisms on the skin and in wounds. Sterile mice heal wounds more quickly than do mice with normal flora, but in real world situations, sterility is not an option. Commensal organisms may serve to keep more harmful ones at bay. In the future we can expect to do more to encourage helpful organisms as we discourage harmful ones. Just as we are learning that overuse of antibiotics can cause gut microbiome imbalances, we may need to learn, in wound care, not to kill our very small friends!
