The review article “Antibacterial biohybrid nanofibers for wound dressings”  (authors: Dr Shahin Homaeigohar and Prof. Aldo R. Boccaccini) is available online in the journal Acta Biomaterialia. In this review paper, the field of antibacterial biohybrid nanofibrous materials for wound healing applications is comprehensively covered, focusing on the most recent (since 2015) developments. Such advanced fibrous systems containing antibacterial nanoparticles/ions, nature-derived compounds and biofunctional agents are gaining increasing relevance for wound healing and skin regeneration applications given the emergence of antibiotic resistant bacteria, which dictates an urgent need to replace traditional antibiotic releasing systems.
