"Antibiotic resistant bacteria and access to antibiotics make chronic wounds a major problem. ● Broad spectrum antimicrobials, that are not classical antibiotic treatments are needed. ● Reactive nitrogen species (RNS) such as HNO and NO have shown promise in killing bacteria. ● RNS are not stable so donors are needed to generate them on demand. ● RNS donors may be useful for wound healing if applied directly to the wounds "
