Maggots trial, patients wanted

9th July 2009

Cardiff University is seeking 200 patients for a trial looking at how efficient maggots are at wound cleaning.

It is teaming up with Bridgend-based ZooBiotic, the UK's only commercial producer of medicinal-quality larvae, with eight hospitals across England and Wales to collaborate on a project that will gather evidence over a year on how effective maggots can be in speeding up healing and cutting the length of hospital stays. The trial aims to translate anecdotal evidence of the effectiveness of maggots in cleaning wounds into hard evidence.
