Autologous Fibroblast Transplantation in Facial Deformities

2014-08-27 03:14:00 | BioPortfolio

Summary

Beautiful skin requires maintenance of proper care. Skin exercise, protections from direct sunlight or harsh wind, and maintaining a healthy diet are some of the ways of having a good and radiant skin. However despite all the care taken passage of time will bring about conditions that will automatically lead to skin aging, which may require certain therapeutic, care. Fibroblasts are cells that synthesize the extracellular matrix and collagen and play a critical role in wound healing and maintenance of healthy skin. Loosing of fibroblast cell is the main problem in aging and wrinkles and non-healed skin wounds. Therefore proliferation of skin fibroblast along with differentiation of stem cells in the skin tissue is the best method for healing.

Description

Autologous cultured fibroblast is derived from in vitro expansion of fibroblasts harvested from the patient's normal skin. Biopsies from behind a patient's ear are the source of fibroblasts, which are isolated, expanded through cell culture, and used for the correction of facial contour deformities such as nasolabial folds, glabellar crease, deep wrinkles of the forehead, and acne scars. Prior to final packaging, cell viability is assessed to be at least 85%.

Each single use container of autologous cultured fibroblasts has approximately 20 million cells aseptically processed and suspended in 1 mL of sterile, buffered Dulbecco's Modified Eagles Medium (DMEM). Both the biopsy transport media and the cell culture media contain gentamicin. Residual quantities of gentamicin up to 5 µg/mL may be present in the Cell product

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A fibroblast growth factor receptor that is found in two isoforms. One receptor isoform is found in the MESENCHYME and is activated by FIBROBLAST GROWTH FACTOR 2. A second isoform of fibroblast growth factor receptor 2 is found mainly in EPITHELIAL CELLS and is activated by FIBROBLAST GROWTH FACTOR 7 and FIBROBLAST GROWTH FACTOR 10. Mutation of the gene for fibroblast growth factor receptor 2 can result in APERT SYNDROME.

The most divergent of the known fibroblast growth factor receptors. It does not contain an intracellular TYROSINE KINASE domain and has been shown to interact with FIBROBLAST GROWTH FACTOR 2. Fibroblast growth factor receptor 5 is found primarily in skeletal tissue.

A fibroblast growth factor receptor with specificity for FIBROBLAST GROWTH FACTORS; HEPARAN SULFATE PROTEOGLYCAN; and NEURONAL CELL ADHESION MOLECULES. Several variants of the receptor exist due to multiple ALTERNATIVE SPLICING of its mRNA. Fibroblast growth factor receptor 1 is a tyrosine kinase that transmits signals through the MAP KINASE SIGNALING SYSTEM.

A fibroblast growth factor that was initially identified based on its sequence similarity to FIBROBLAST GROWTH FACTOR 4. It is found in MYOBLASTS and plays an important role in MUSCLE DEVELOPMENT.

A fibroblast growth factor that is a specific mitogen for EPITHELIAL CELLS. It binds a complex of HEPARAN SULFATE and FIBROBLAST GROWTH FACTOR RECEPTOR 2B.
