• Diabetic foot ulcers (DFUs) are a major complication of diabetes. • We describe the development of next-generation technologies for DFU repair. • We highlight the modest success of growth factor-, scaffold-, and cell-based DFU therapies. • We rationalize that combination therapies will be necessary to enable effective and reliable DFU repair.

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
