What can maggots do?
Clinical and laboratory trials have identified four major actions (areas of influence) of medicinal maggots therapy on wounds:
- Debridement of still and infected tissue
- Disinfection of the environment
- Stimulation of the healing process
- Eradication and prevention of biofilm creation (complex, multi cellular bacteria and organic and nun organic substances produced by microorganisms such as Staphylococcus epidermidis, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Escherichia coli, Enterococcus faecalis or Candida albicans)
