Delivery of mesenchymal stem cells in biomimetic engineered scaffolds promotes healing of diabetic ulcers

Written by Regenerative Medicine

Research Article by Roland Assi et al. (Yale University School of Medicine, New Haven, CT, USA) hypothesizing that the delivery of MSCs in a biomimetic collagen scaffold may improve wound healing in a diabetic mouse model. MSCs are a promising source of cells for multiple regenerative processes. The extracellular matrix plays a significant role in controlling cell behavior, directly and indirectly modulating stem cell functions including self-renewal and differentiation.
