The 2019 Nobel Prize in physiology or medicine has been award to three scientists whose research has centred on cellular detection and reaction to hypoxia – low oxygen levels in tissues. This ground-breaking research has not only improved our understanding of oxygen regulation but also highlighted chronic disease areas where hypoxia plays a significant role, one such area is wound healing.

Oxygen availability is critical during every stage of the wound healing process. Whilst most wounds will exhibit a degree of hypoxia initially, persistent tissue hypoxia will result in impaired wound healing.
