• TOPICAL CALCITONIN GENE-RELATED PEPTIDE INCREASES WOUND CLOSURE IN SECOND DEGREE CUTANEOUS BURNSBiologyMissouri State University, August 2012Master of ScienceDarin Thomas DieckhoffABSTRACTCutaneous thermal wounds result in significant tissue damage with loss of epidermis, nerve fibers, and vascular tissue, which increases healing time.
