Differences Between Oral and Skin Keratinocytes During Wound Healing
Epithelial cells provide barrier protection throughout the body. Although oral mucosal and skin epithelium share many morphological similarities they also exhibit distinct capacities. One significant functional difference ...
Acute Pain Speeds Skin Barrier Recovery in Healthy Men and Women
Objective. Psychological stress is known to impair skin barrier recovery, but little is known about the impact of pain on skin healing processes. Our primary goals were to examine the degree to which acute pain affects ...
Hydrogels as Therapeutic Delivery Vehicles for Wound Healing
Diabetes is one of the major systemic causes of delayed wound healing. Exploiting scaffolds as mediums to facilitate wound healing can be a modality to reestablish normal tissue structure, or engineer the tissue back to ...
Stress Dysregulates Inflammatory Gene Expression During Wound Healing Via miRS
Wound healing is a complex series of events aiming to clear bacteria, repair damaged tissue, and restore function, Later events rely on the successful completion of early events, thus the inflammatory phase is crucial. ...
Negative Regulators of Angiogenesis during Wound Healing
During dermal wound repair, hypoxia-driven proliferation results in dense but poorly-perfused, disorganized microvascular networks, similar to those in tumors. Concurrently, activated dermal fibroblasts generate an ...
Aberrant wound healing in an epidermal interleukin-4 transgenic mouse model of atopic dermatitis
(Public Library of Science, 2016-01-11)
Wound healing in a pre-existing Th2-dominated skin milieu was assessed by using an epidermal specific interleukin-4 (IL-4) transgenic (Tg) mouse model, which develops a pruritic inflammatory skin condition resembling human ...
