Unraveling how mesenchymal stem cells from gum tissue accelerate wound healing

20:00 EDT 13 Mar 2018 | AAAS

(University of Pennsylvania) Researchers at the University of Pennsylvania set out to determine whether and how gum-derived stem cells play a role in accelerated wound healing. Their results, indicating that these cells secrete tiny vesicles packed with signaling proteins, point the way forward for therapeutic strategies that aim to harness the prowess of stem cells to treat delayed wound healing as well as other conditions that involve an overactive inflammatory response, such as autoimmune diseases.
