Transforming growth factor-beta (TGF-beta) family members are secreted multifunctional cytokines that play pivotal roles in development and disease. The prototypic member of this family, TGF-beta, pla...
Do engineered nanoparticles impact the normal wound healing process? In this report, the authors present a platform that can be used to assess the impact of ENPs on cell migration and wound healing. ...
(Penn State) One of the body's tools for fighting off infection in a wound may actually slow down the healing process, according to new research published online in Nature Medicine on June 15, 2015. T...
(Rockefeller University Press) A protein that normally fosters tissue repair instead acts to inhibit healing when sugar levels are high. The role reversal helps explain why wounds heal slowly in peopl...
One of the body's tools for fighting off infection in a wound may actually slow down the healing process, according to new research by a team of Harvard University, Boston Children's Hospital, and Pen...
Scientists have found that they could speed up wound healing in diabetic mice by keeping immune cells called neutrophils from producing bacteria-trapping neutrophil extracellular traps (NETs).
Neutraphil extracellular trap formation is increased in type 1 and 2 diabetes and impairs wound healing.
The most detailed study to date showing how electrical stimulation accelerates wound healing has been carried out in 40 volunteers by University of Manchester scientists.Read
The Nod-like receptor protein (NLRP)-3 inflammasome/IL-1β pathway is involved in the pathogenesis of various inflammatory skin diseases, but its biological role in wound healing remains to be elucida...
Oxygen is an essential substance for wound healing. Limited studies have shown that topical oxygen can influence healing. This study evaluated the effects of a Topical Oxygen Emulsion (TOE) on burn wo...
Gingival wound healing comprises a series of sequential responses that allow the closure of breaches in the masticatory mucosa. This process is of critical importance to prevent the invasion of microb...
Refractory wound healing is a major complication of diabetes, which restricts wound healing by interfering with the inflammatory response, decreasing granulation, causing peripheral neuropathy, and in...
The aim of this study is to determine the cutaneous wound healing effects of the ethanol extract of Cotinus coggygria leaves in rats by excision wound model to provide scientific evidence for the trad...
