Dehydrated amniotic membrane is a potential source of therapeutic cytokines for wound healing

Written by Regenerative Medicine

In research published in Regenerative Medicine, dehydrated binate amniotic membrane was found to have potential in chronic wound healing. Wound healing is a complex natural process regulated by extracellular signaling pathways involving cytokines, growth factors and membrane receptors, although chronic wounds, such as diabetic and venous ulcers, often require clinical intervention. Chronic wounds pose a significant burden to the US healthcare system, affecting around 5 million patients and costing an estimated US$25 billion annually. Current treatments include electrophysical stimulation, bioengineered therapy based on recombinant growth factors, and application of platelet rich plasma and stem cell-based therapy. A more multifaceted approach...
