Background and Objective: The incidence of diabetes has been on the rise and the rate of
rise since the turn of this century has been phenomenal. One of the various battling issues faced by
diabetics all over the globe is the management of diabetic wounds. Currently, there are several management
strategies to deal with the treatment of diabetic wounds. The conventional methods have
several limitations. One of the major limitations is the rate and progression of healing of a diabetic
wound when adopting a conventional diabetic wound management therapy. Lately, several nano
techniques and nano products have emerged in the market that offer promising results for such
patients. The treatment outcomes are achieved more efficiently with such nanomedical products.
Methods: This review attempts to consider the currently available nanotechnological applications in
the management of diabetic wounds. We take a deeper look into the available nanotherapeutic
agents and the different nanocarriers that could be used in the management of diabetic wound healing.
Lately, researchers around the globe have started providing evidences on the effective use of
such nanoparticles in various fields of Medicine extending from genetics to various other branches
of medicine. This also includes the management of diabetic wounds.
Conclusion: This paper discusses the challenges faced with these nanotherapies and nanoparticles
with regard to the treatment of diabetic wounds.
Keywords: Nanotechnology, diabetes, diabetic wound healing, nanotherapeutic agents, nanocarriers, WHO.
