dc.description.abstractMaggot therapy (MT) is the clinical application of living fly larvae for the treatment of non-healing wounds and wounds that require debridement. This systematized and expanded literature review is the first study to investigate MT through the conceptual and disciplinary framework of supply chain management. The review of 491 selected academic papers was expanded to include the grey literature and online information resources to construct a first-pass theory of the medicinal maggot supply chain. It shows that the literature to date has focused on isolated discussions of echelon-specific issues such as diet improvement and sterilization protocols in the production echelon, and the relative effectiveness of medicinal maggot application methods in the treatment echelon. There is little knowledge in the public domain regarding the transport and distribution of medicinal maggots, but existing supply chains for vaccines, blood and pathology specimens may provide learning and supply chain integration opportunities. Maggot therapy knowledge across the treatment echelon is generally substantive but there is still insufficient knowledge regarding patients' and health care providers' attitudes toward the therapy, and their experiences of receiving and administering MT. Moreover, there is no research concerned with the humane disposal of medicinal flies during production and after treatment.
