As the guest editor of this special issue of the InternationalJournal of Pharmaceutics, it is my honor to introduce the topic“Improved Wound Dressing: Novel Approaches.” The purpose of thisspecial issue is to highlight the combined application of nanotech-nology and biomaterials science for obtaining wound dressingswith desired properties. I expect this special issue containing10 manuscripts to be of great interest for researchers from themedical and technological fields, opening new directions for thedesign of nano-engineered materials to inhibit microbial coloniza-tion and to potentate the efficiency of the current therapeutic agents. The paper authored by…
