Studies directed toward improving wound healing and resistance to wound infection of severely injured soldiers have been carried out aimed at establishing improved prophylactic and therapeutic measures. The studies are based on our view that some of the complex series of events which underlie the reparative process and resistances to wound infection are affected adversely by injury and that these may be modified by nutritional, chemical, and hormonal means, singly and in combination in ways to improve the rate and quality of wound healing, increase resistance to infection an thereby shorten convalescence and speed the return to active duty.
