Wound healing following an acute injury consists of a complex ordered cascade of events that rapidly progresses through an inflammatory phase, followed by a cell proliferation phase and later by a more prolonged wound-remodeling phase. In this Editorial, Arsalan Shabbir and Evangelos V Badiavas from the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine (FL, USA) comment on the possibility of mesenchymal stem cell-based therapies improving the management of burns by attenuating the exaggerated inflammatory response and regenerating the lost tissue.
