Skin: Current Research on Isolation or Production of Therapeutic Cells

The isolation of viable stem cells for use as therapeutic cells in skin regeneration is a continuously evolving area of interest in stem cell therapy. Current research focuses on identifying and isolating stem cells that will effectively aid regeneration in vivo. Stem cells in the skin contribute to both the generation of new hair follicles and the repair of damaged skin tissue during wound healing. Epidermal stem cells contribute to the repair and maintenance of the interfollicular epidermis, hair follicles, and sebaceous glands. There are stem cells in the dermis derived from neural crest cells that play a significant role in wound repair. The regenerative traits of skin stem cells make them potentially valuable therapeutic options in artificial wound healing and skin care. There are ...
