Effect of human adipose derived stem cells on scar formation and remodeling in a pig model: a pilot study.


BACKGROUND Adipose-derived stem cells (ASCs) have positive effects in the wound healing process. OBJECTIVE To clarify whether ASCs positively mitigate scar formation in the wound remodeling process. MATERIALS AND METHODS Full-thickness skin defects were created on the dorsal skin of Yorkshire pigs. After the defects were transformed into early scars… (More)
