The healing process of an injury comprises a series of steps (haemostasis, inflammation and proliferation/maturation). Exudate from wounds is a natural response to heal. However, an excess production can compromise and delay the inflammatory phase, resulting in chronicity. Novel biocompatible, biodegradable and adaptable dressings are sought to promote tissue regeneration, prevent infection and control inflammation. Aerogels are nanostructured dry materials with high porosity, large surface and low bulk density. Bio-based aerogels, from natural polymer sources, can provide advanced performance for wound healing; also, they can act as carriers for bioactive compounds.[1] Adenosine (ADO) is a nucleoside that is expected to trigger the healing process of chronic wounds, promoting angiogenesis and regeneration.[2] Silk fibroin (SF) aerogels can act as promising carriers of bioactive molecules while supporting cell proliferation. Hereupon, SF aerogels loaded with Adenosine were developed in the form of particles for wound healing applications, using supercritical CO2 technology.
