The basic fibroblast growth factor (bFGF) plays an important role in the wound repair process. However, lacking of better biomaterials to carry bFGF still is a challenge in skin repair and regeneration. In this study, the human-like collagen (HLC) cross-linked with transglutaminase (TG) to fabricate a HLC/TG hydrogel to load bFGF. The physical properties of hydrogel, such as interior structure, mechanical property, were characterized using scanning electron microscopy (SEM), rheometer. Then, the effects of the HLC/TG hydrogel on the bFGF and cell attachmentwere evaluated, and the results showed that the HLC/TG hydrogel has good biocompatibility towards bFGF and cells. Finally, skin wound healing test was performed for the evaluation of HLC/TG hydrogels with bFGF in a mouse model. All results of macroscopic and microscopic analysis indicated that not only our HLC/TG hydrogel provide a delivery of growth factors, but also the HLC/TG hydrogel with bFGF achieving better skin regeneration in the structure and function.

The management of pilonidal cysts is a skin excision and under deep skin. Scarring requires regular dressings (daily for 15 days and then every 48 hours) until complete healing. This heali...
This observational study aims to identify risk factors and molecular mechanisms of impaired wound healing, to guide better foot care in the diabetic population.
SACCHACHITIN gel, prepared from the waste residue of the fruiting body of Ganoderma tsugae, was used in a previous study to enhance skin wound healing in animal models. In the present stud...
The application of a vacuum across the surface of a wound through a foam dressing cut to fit the wound. This removes wound exudates, reduces build-up of inflammatory mediators, and increases the flow of nutrients to the wound thus promoting healing.
Removal of degenerated and necrotic epithelium and underlying connective tissue of a periodontal pocket in an effort to convert a chronic ulcerated wound to an acute surgical wound, thereby insuring wound healing and attachment or epithelial adhesion, and shrinkage of the marginal gingiva. The term is sometimes used in connection with smoothing of a root surface or ROOT PLANING. (Jablonski; Illustrated Dictionary of Dentistry, 1982)
Restoration of integrity to traumatized tissue.
