Stem Cells & Wound Healing
Stem cells are well known for its characterized for its property of self-renewal and differentiate as multipotency cells. For the treatment of chronic wounds, they can act as a most therapeutic potential and attractive option because of its ability to secrete proregenerative cytokines. The connective tissue that is characterised within the skin by disorganised collagen structure, loss of hair follicles and irregular vascular structure is often used in the replacement of wounded tissues in adults. However, the traditional tissue with the activity of stem cells is preferred to replace in the case of wounded fetal tissue. An attainable technique for tissue regeneration in adults is to put adult somatic cell "seeds" within a tissue bed "soil" in a wound bed and permit the stem cells to stimulate differentiation within the tissue bed cells. This technique elicits a regenerative response additional almost like fetal wound-healing than adult connective tissue formation. Researchers are still in investigation for totally different aspects of the "soil" tissue that is conducive to regeneration.
