Bulge Hair Follicle Stem Cells Accelerate Cutaneous Wound Healing in Rats

Key words: 

Abstract: Objective. Skin wound healing is a serious clinical problem especially after surgery and severe injury of the skin. Cell therapy is an innovative technique that can be applied to wound healing. One appropriate source of stem cells for therapeutic use is stem cells from the adult bulge of hair follicles. This study examined the effects of adult bulge hair follicle stem cells (HFSC) in wound healing....

Adipose-derived Stem Cells Added to Platelet-rich Plasma for Chronic Skin Ulcer Therapy

Key words: 

Abstract: Introduction. Adipose-derived stem cells (ASCs) hold great promise for regenerative medicine applications due to their ability to promote the healing process through in situ differentiation and secretion of paracrine factor. The aim of this paper is to present a clinical adjunct for chronic skin wound therapy based on ASCs added to platelet-rich plasma (PRP), to obtain an enhanced PRP (e-PRP)....

A Prospective, Postmarket, Compassionate Clinical Evaluation of a Novel Acellular Fish-skin Graft Which Contains Omega-3 Fatty Acids for the Closure of Hard-to-heal Lower Extremity Chronic Ulcers

Key words: 

Abstract: Introduction. A novel piscine acellular fish-skin graft product has 510k clearance on the US market. This product (Omega3, Kerecis, Isafjordur, Iceland) is to be used similarly to extracellular matrices (ECMs) on the market (eg, bovine and porcine) except that it contains fats, including omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids that have been associated with anti-inflammatory properties in many studies. While many current ECMs are effective on open wounds, studies have largely excluded application to hard-to-heal ulcers. To test this product in a real-world environment, the authors chose to look specifically at hard-to-heal ulcers based on previously defined wound and patient factors.....

Optimizing Skin Grafting Using Hair-derived Skin Grafts: The Healing Potential of Hair Follicle Pluripotent Stem Cells

Key words: 

Abstract: Background. A man in his 60s with recurrent venous leg ulcers (VLUs) presented with an 18-month history of a VLU on his medial left leg measuring 59.3 cm2. He had been treated with multi-component compression bandages without significant decrease in ulcer size. Given the ulcer’s size, refractory nature, and history of recurrence, the authors sought to optimize the patient’s healing....
