Formatted Abstract/Summary
To assess the efficacy of potential scar reducing treatments the development of better animal wounding models mimicking human skin wounding and tissue repair are required.

To this end, the relative advantages and disadvantages of specific animal wound models will be discussed. Furthermore, we will examine how these models have been further improved upon to more closely resemble human skin wound healing under both normal and disease conditions. The successful use of these animal models will aid in our understanding of the scientific principles of wound biology and allow the development of innovative treatments to improve the quality of critically ill patients with burns or other skin wounds.
