Development of a biomaterial associated with mesenchymal stem cells and keratinocytes for use as a skin substitute

Written by Regenerative Medicine

Research Article investigating the characteristics of specially fabricated scaffolds aimed at use in wound healing applications, by Monica B Mathor, Bruna TS Santi, Dayane P Luco and Patricia Pranke (Brazil). The use of scaffolds for regenerative medicine shows potential for supporting wound healing and regenerating damaged skin tissue, particularly for large burns and chronic wounds, where existing treatments often result in poor healing and significant scarring. In particular, a biocompatible and biodegradable scaffold at the lesion site would allow greater contact and interaction of cells at the injury site, and slow and steady degradation of the biomaterial could be important...
