For Burns, A Silver Bullet For Fighting Infection

Abstract:
New medical dressings are reinforcing the lesson that, for burn patients, silver is worth more in a bandage than in bullion.

Silver's antibiotic properties have made the precious metal a popular treatment for wounds and burns. It helps skin to heal by staving off infections. In recent years several companies, including Nucryst Pharmaceuticals Corp. of Wakefield, have revolutionized wound care with silver-impregnated dressings that require fewer painful changings than previous silver treatments.
