Georgetown rheumatologist Dr. Victoria Shanmugam, M.D., noticed that any open wound in autoimmune patients was very slow to heal. The recovery was even more protracted than that of diabetic patients.

Researchers hope that this link between autoimmune diseases and wound healing will make its way into the consciousness of the general practitioner. The research will be presented during the annual meeting of the American College of Rheumatology in Chicago.
