Design and in vivo evaluation of a molecularly defined acellular skin construct: reduction of early contraction and increase in early blood vessel formation.

Abstract

Skin substitutes are of great benefit in the treatment of patients with full thickness wounds, but there is a need for improvement with respect to wound closure with minimal contraction, early vascularisation, and elastin formation. In this study we designed and developed an acellular double-layered skin construct, using matrix molecules and growth factors… (More)
