The aim of this study was to analyse viability, growth, differentiation and drug metabolic capacity of cultured human keratinocytes obtained from post-mortem skin. Epidermal cells were prepared from 1-day post-mortem paired sun-exposed (outer) and sun-protected (inner) sites of the upper arm, of donors aged 47-80 years. The percentage of viable cells obtained from post-mortem skin was only slightly lower than that usually obtained for keratinocytes isolated from fresh skin, and no alterations… CONTINUE READING
