- The Swansea University “Love a Maggot!” campaign has been launched to raise awareness of the use of living maggots as a clinical treatment to help clear and heal chronic wounds.
- Many people are at risk of developing non-healing wounds, including people who suffer from diabetes, or those who may have vascular problems.
- Medicinal maggots are tiny baby stages of the beautiful green-bottle fly. The maggots that are put onto wounds are the newly emerged teeny babies!
