This theory was refined and expanded by Falanga and Eaglstein (1993) in their ‘trap’ hypothesis. They suggested that the macromolecules such as fibrinogen and α2-macroglobulin leaking into the dermis bind or ‘trap’ growth factors and matrix materials, hence making them unavailable for tissue repair and maintenance of tissue integrity. This hostile environment may also inhibit the de novo synthesis of ECM molecules by cells in the wound bed. Another theory, put forward is the proposed ‘leukocyte trapping’ hypothesis (Coleridge Smith et al.

G. thrombospondin) compared to those isolated from younger individuals (Kramer et al. 1985). Furthermore, they demonstrated increased adhesiveness to leucocytes, increased responsiveness to TNF (which inhibits proliferation and phenotypically alters the cells (Gamble et al. 1985)) and increased production of IL-1 (resulting in decreased proliferation). These phenotypic changes may be due to the acquisition by the endothelial cell of senescent characteristics (Chang et al. 2002). Senescence has also been associated with atherosclerosis due to evidence of shortening telomeres with age, especially in blood vessels where the endothelium is under haemodynamic stress (Chang & Harley 1995; Okuda et al.

2; for a review see Falanga 2001). It is estimated that in the UK alone, chronic wounds affect approximately 3% of the population over the age of 65 years and cost healthcare providers over £1 billion annually (Harding, Morris, & Patel 2002). In addition to the financial cost, they can be both debilitating and painful for the sufferer and greatly reduce quality of life (Phillips et al. 1994; Krasner 1998; Persoon et al. 2004). Studies have demonstrated that incidence of lower limb ulceration increases steadily with increasing age after 65 years (Margolis et al.
