Juliet Walker: BMJ in the news

Juliet WalkerUsing maggots to help heal ulcers does not sound like the most modern method but a BMJ paper has found that it can be effective. Researchers studied the effects of maggots and Hydrogel on healing ulcers. They found that there was no difference between using maggots or Hydrogel on the healing time for ulcers, but maggot therapy did reduce the time to debridement. However using maggots did also increase ulcer pain.
