Peripheral vasculopathies cause severe wound hypoxia inducing the hypoxamiR miR-210. High level of miR-210, persisting in wound-edge tissue as ischemic memory, suppresses oxidative metabolism and inhibits cell proliferation necessary for healing. In wound-edge tissue of chronic wound patients, elevated miR-210 was tightly associated with inhibition of epidermal cell proliferation as evident by lowered Ki67 immunoreactivity. To inhibit miR-210 in murine ischemic wound-edge tissue, we report the formulation of antihypoxamiR functionalized gramicidin lipid nanoparticles (AFGLN). A single intradermal delivery of AFGLN encapsulating LNA-conjugated anti-hypoximiR-210 (AFGLN
