Effectiveness of honey dressing in the treatment of diabetic foot ulcers: A systematic review and meta-analysis

Honey dressing has been applied in the treatment of diabetic foot ulcers (DFUs). However, there is a lack of research showing ample evidence that honey dressing is more effective in the treatment of DFUs than other dressings. This study aimed to examine the effects of honey dressing on wound-healing process for DFUs.

Recurrent group A Streptococcus tonsillitis is an immunosusceptibility disease involving antibody deficiency and aberrant TFH cells

“Strep throat” is highly prevalent among children, yet it is unknown why only some children develop recurrent tonsillitis (RT), a common indication for tonsillectomy. To gain insights into this classic childhood disease, we performed phenotypic, genotypic, and functional studies on pediatric group A Streptococcus (GAS) RT and non-RT tonsils from two independent cohorts.
