BACKGROUND We developed an experimental model of ethanol-induced dermatotoxicity and hepatocytoxicity using normal human keratinocytes and normal human hepatocytes that preserve inducible cytochrome p450 activities. The original work was described in several articles. The objective of this study was to determine whether hyaluronic acid attenuates skin necrosis, and to further clarify its uses in wound repair in humans, animal models and in vitro studies. METHODS We performed a systematic… 

Tables from this paper

Hyaluronic acid with antioxidants improve wound healing in rats
Improved wound healing in HA treated rats within 7 days is observed, and significant differences in TGF-β and IGF levels among HA groups between days 3 and 21, and among control groups between Days 0 and 21 are found.
Activity of two hyaluronan preparations on primary human oral fibroblasts
The data suggest that in gingival tissues, the HAs are not likely to impair the healing process by prolonging inflammation or causing excessive MMP expression at the repair site, and both investigated HA formulations are biocompatible.
In Vitro Evaluation of Novel Hybrid Cooperative Complexes in a Wound Healing Model: A Step Toward Improved Bioreparation
The performance of this innovative hybrid cooperative complex of high- and low-molecular-weight hyaluronan in a novel in vitro HaCaT (immortalized human keratinocytes)/HDF (human dermal fibroblast) co-culture model to assess its ability to repair skin tissue lesions was investigated.
Efficacy of hyaluronic acid film on perianal wound healing in a rat model
Topical application of HA film to perianal wounds improves the wound healing rate in a rat model, suggesting a potential benefit ofHA film application in promoting wound healing after anal surgery in humans.
Comparison of Pathologic Effects of Hyaluronic Acid And Collagenase on Wound Healing of Rabbit Ear Cartilage Tissue
The findings of the present experimental study indicate that neither hyaluronic acid nor collagenase has any promoting effect on wound healing of ear cartilage tissue.
Advantages of Hyaluronic Acid and Its Combination with Other Bioactive Ingredients in Cosmeceuticals
The biological effect of HA on the skin level and its potential adverse effects are discussed and some available cosmetic products containing HA have been identified from the brand portfolio of most known manufacturers and their composition was evaluated.
Effects of a Catechol-Functionalized Hyaluronic Acid Patch Combined with Human Adipose-Derived Stem Cells in Diabetic Wound Healing
The combination of HA-CA and ADSCs provided synergistic wound healing effects by maximizing paracrine signaling and angiogenesis via the PI3K/AKT pathway and might represent a novel strategy for the treatment of DBW.


Hyaluronic acid signals for repair in ethanol-induced apoptosis in skin cells in vitro.
Hyaluronic acid, an important factor in the wound healing properties of amniotic fluid: In vitro studies of re-epithelialisation in human skin wounds
It is verified that amniotic fluid induces re-epithelialisation in human skin wounds in vitro and whether this ability is dependent on hyaluronic acid is studied.
A new association between hyaluronic acid and collagenase in wound repair: an open study.
The application of this product on the lesions promotes vascularized granulation tissue and reduces formation of fibrin and exudate and a macroscopical margins proliferation is highlighted after a short time and an improvement of periwound skin is observed during the treatment period.
Hyaluronic acid‐dependent protection against alkali‐burned human corneal cells
This study is the first to report the possible mechanisms by which HMW‐HA promotes repair in alkali‐injured human corneal epithelial cells and modulates biosynthetic pathways, cell migration, cell outgrowth, and protein degradation to stimulate wound healing and prevent cell death.
Influence of hyaluronic acid on wound healing using composite porcine acellular dermal matrix grafts and autologous skin in rabbits
Exogenous HA relieves graft contracture on rabbit wound surfaces, increases collagen I and III expression and decreases the ratio between collagen types, which will facilitate the development of methods for improving graftcontracture and poor elasticity of composite transplantation.
Effectiveness of Platelet-Rich Plasma and Hyaluronic Acid for the Treatment and Care of Pressure Ulcers
The degree of wound healing was inversely correlated with the consumption of drugs such as statins and with the peripheral blood platelet levels of patients at baseline, and the level of infection in any PUs during the 36-day follow-up period.
Development of a functional wound dressing composed of hyaluronic acid spongy sheet containing bioactive components: evaluation of wound healing potential in animal tests
Wound conditions after 1 week and 2 weeks of treatment were evaluated based on macroscopic and histological appearance and indicated that EGF-free-dressing and EGF -dressing have the potential for more effective wound healing when compared with Alg-d dressing.
Mixture of hyaluronic acid, chondroitin 6 sulphate and dermatan sulphate used to completely regenerate bone in rat critical size defect model.
Human skin cell fractions fail to self-organize within a gellan gum/hyaluronic acid matrix but positively influence early wound healing.
The proposed matrix did not succeed in prolonging cells residence time and in sustaining the self-organization of transplanted human cells possibly due to primitive degradation, but the approach open the opportunity to tackle wound healing at early stages contributing to re-epithelialization and neovascularization.
