Induction of antimicrobial peptides secretion by IL-1β enhances human amniotic membrane for regenerative medicine

Abstract

Due to antibacterial characteristic, amnion has been frequently used in different clinical situations. Developing an in vitro method to augment endogenous antibacterial ingredient of amniotic epithelial and mesenchymal stem cells is desirable for a higher efficacy of this promising biomaterial. In this study, epithelial or mesenchymal side dependent effect… (More)
