A Novel, Sterilized Microvascular Tissue Product Improves Healing in a Murine Pressure Ulcer Model.

Plast Reconstr Surg Glob Open 2018 Nov 21;6(11):e2010. Epub 2018 Nov 21.

Center for Stem Cell Research & Regenerative Medicine, Tulane University School of Medicine, New Orleans, La.

Background: Processed microvascular tissue (PMVT), a human structural allograft, is derived from lyophilized human tissue containing microcirculatory cellular components. Since PMVT serves as a source of extracellular matrix (ECM), growth factors, cytokines, and chemokines modulating angiogenesis, inflammation, apoptosis, and endogenous cell recruitment, we hypothesized its application would accelerate wound regeneration in a validated pressure ulcer (PU) model developed in C57BL/6 mice using two 24-hour cycles of skin ischemia/reperfusion created by placement and removal of external magnets.

Methods: Two identical PU injuries (n = 50 female mice) were treated with (a) topical particulate PMVT, (b) injected rehydrated PMVT, or (c) saline control injection, and assessed daily for closure rates, scab formation/removal, and temperature. Read More

Haematologica 2019 Feb 7. Epub 2019 Feb 7.

University of Birmingham

Platelets promote wound healing by forming a vascular plug and by secreting growth factors and cytokines. Glycoprotein (GP)VI and C-type lectin-like receptor (CLEC)-2 signal through a (hem)-immunoreceptor tyrosine-based activation motif, which induce platelet activation. GPVI and CLEC-2 support vascular integrity during inflammation in the skin through regulation of leukocyte migration and function, and by sealing sites of vascular damage. Read More

Investigation of Conjunctival Fibrosis Response Using a 3D Glaucoma Tenon's Capsule + Conjunctival Model.

Invest Ophthalmol Vis Sci 2019 Feb;60(2):605-614

Institute for Science and Technology in Medicine, School of Medicine, Keele University, Stoke-on-Trent, United Kingdom.

Purpose: Surgical techniques such as trabeculectomy aim to treat glaucoma by making an incision into the scleral tissue, to create an alternative drainage pathway for aqueous to flow into the sub-Tenon's/subconjunctival space. However, tissue fibrosis and wound healing occurring after the procedures can reduce the success rate. This study aims to investigate the synergistic effects of aqueous humor in combination with shear stress on the fibrosis response occurring in Tenon's capsule and conjunctival tissue (TCCT) after glaucoma surgery.

Loliolide Presents Antiapoptosis and Antiscratching Effects in Human Keratinocytes.

Int J Mol Sci 2019 Feb 2;20(3). Epub 2019 Feb 2.

Department of Biocosmetics, Sungkyunkwan University, Suwon 16419, Korea.

Loliolide is a monoterpenoid hydroxylactone present in freshwater algae that has anti-inflammatory and antiaging activity; however, its effects on ultraviolet-damaged skin have yet to be elucidated. This study investigated the antiapoptosis and wound-healing effects of loliolide using HaCaT cells (a human keratinocyte cell line). Loliolide inhibited the expression of reactive oxygen species (ROS) induced by ultraviolet radiation as well as wrinkle formation-related matrix metalloproteinase genes and increased the expression of the damage repair-related gene SIRT1.
