UC Davis finding may lead to novel stem cell treatments for chronic wounds. Sacramento, CA (PRWEB) April 28, 2014 The stress hormone epinephrine — the source of the “fight-or-flight” response — also heightens stresses at the cellular level, inhibiting wound healing and promoting a state of chronic inflammation that prohibits the body’s stem cells from migrating to a wound to encourage skin regeneration, UC Davis researchers have found. The research, published in the April issue...

Stress could activate "crosstalking" cell signals that decrease the body’s natural healing process after a wound occurs, according to a new study released today in STEM CELLS Translational Medicine. The finding helps explain how stress impairs healing and, conversely, could lead to a way to overcome chronic wounds resulting from serious burns and other skin injuries. Durham, NC (PRWEB) April 23, 2014 Stress could activate "crosstalking" cell signals that decrease the...

In early fetal development, skin wounds undergo regeneration and healing without scar formation. This mechanism of wound healing later disappears, but by studying the fetal stem cells capable of this scarless wound healing, researchers may be able to apply these mechanisms to develop cell-based approaches able to minimize scarring in adult wounds, as described in a Critical Review article published in Advances in Wound Care, a monthly publication from Mary Ann Liebert, Inc., publishers and an...
