The pathogenesis of most chronic wounds is unknown. In this report, we summarize several areas of investigation which appear ready for further progress and which were discussed at a recent National Institutes of Health workshop on this subject. Of note were presentations of research on the role of fibrosis in wound healing, interaction of cytokines, hypoxia, extracellular matrix formation, keratinocyte migration, and involvement of proteases and neuropeptides in chronic wounds.
