Paracrine Factors of Mesenchymal Stem Cells Recruit Macrophages and Endothelial Lineage Cells and Enhance Wound Healing
Bone marrow derived mesenchymal stem cells (BM-MSCs) have been shown to enhance wound healing; however, the mechanisms involved are barely understood. In this study, we examined paracrine factorsExpand

Mesenchymal Stem Cells Enhance Wound Healing Through Differentiation and Angiogenesis
Although chronic wounds are common, treatment for these disabling conditions remains limited and largely ineffective. In this study, we examined the benefit of bone marrow‐derived mesenchymal stemExpand

Hypertrophic scars, keloids, and contractures. The cellular and molecular basis for therapy.
Keloids, hypertrophic scars, and contractures are a result of aberrations of the normal wound healing process. An understanding of the cellular and molecular events that are implicated in theExpand

Peripheral Blood Fibrocytes from Burn Patients: Identification and Quantification of Fibrocytes in Adherent Cells Cultured from Peripheral Blood Mononuclear Cells
Peripheral blood fibrocytes are a newly identified leukocyte subpopulation that displays fibroblast-like properties. These blood-borne cells can rapidly enter the site of injury at the same time asExpand

Rating the resolving hypertrophic scar: comparison of the Vancouver Scar Scale and scar volume.
The increased focus of research interests and clinical documentation on outcomes demands that evaluation tools provide reliable and valid data. The Vancouver Scar Scale (VSS) was developed to provideExpand

Fibrocytes from burn patients regulate the activities of fibroblasts
Wound healing requires an elaborate interplay between numerous cell types that orchestrate a series of regulated and overlapping events. Fibrocytes are a unique leukocyte subpopulation implicated inExpand
