A novel, comprehensive decision-making and treatment algorithm was established within a US government-run military veteran hospital in an attempt to standardize the process of outpatient wound care and streamline costs. All patients were systematically evaluated and treated using the comprehensive algorithm over a span of nine months. After three months of adherence to the algorithm, the algorithm was modified to include ovine-based collagen extracellular matrix (CECM) dressings as a first-line conventional treatment strategy for all appropriate wounds...

Dermal wounds, both acute and chronic, represent a significant clinical challenge and therefore the development of novel biomaterial-based skin substitutes to promote skin repair is essential. Nanofibers have garnered attention as materials to promote skin regeneration due to the similarities in morphology and dimensionality between nanofibers and native extracellular matrix proteins, which are critical in guiding cutaneous wound healing. Electrospun chitosan-poly(caprolactone) (CPCL) nanofiber scaffolds, which combine the important intrinsic biological properties of chitosan and the mechanical integrity and stability of PCL, were evaluated as skin tissue engineering scaffolds using a mouse cutaneous excisional skin defect model...

Fibrosis is known as a frequent and irreversible pathological condition which is associated with organ failure. Tissue fibrosis is a central process in a variety of chronic progressive diseases such as diabetes, hypertension, and persistent inflammation. This state could contribute to chronic injury and the initiation of tissue repair. Fibrotic disorders represent abnormal wound healing with defective matrix turnover and clearance that lead to excessive accumulation of extracellular matrix components. A variety of identified growth factors, cytokines, and persistently activated myofibroblasts have critical roles in the pathogenesis of fibrosis...

DNA methylation is a major epigenetic mechanism to regulate gene expression. Epigenetic regulation, including DNA methylation, histone modifications and RNA interference, results in heritable changes in gene expression independent of alterations in DNA sequence. Epigenetic regulation often occurs in response to aging and environment stimuli, including exposures and diet. Studies have shown that DNA methylation is critical in the pathogenesis of fibrosis involving multiple organs sytems, contributing to significant morbidity and mortality...

Individuals with recessive dystrophic epidermolysis bullosa (RDEB), a rare genetic skin disease, carry mutations in the COL7A1 gene that codes for type VII collagen, an extracellular matrix component of the basement membrane zone forming the anchoring fibrils. As a consequence, RDEB individuals manifest unremitting skin blistering that evolves into chronic wounds, inflammation, and fibrosis. These features play a central role in the development of more severe disease complications, such as mitten deformities of hands and feet and aggressive epithelial cancers...

Liver fibrosis is an aberrant wound-healing process to chronic hepatic inflammation and is characterized by excessive accumulation of extracellular matrix (ECM) that is produced by activated hepatic stellate cells (HSCs). Thus, activated HSCs play a key role in the pathogenesis of liver fibrosis and are a potential target for the treatment of liver fibrosis. Herein, we report that a specific HSC-penetrating peptide reduced collagen accumulation by inducing the apoptosis of HSC-T6 cells. We first screened HSC-specific transduction peptides and identified a novel HSC-targeted cell-penetrating peptide (HTP) that specifically interacted with HSC-T6 cells...

OBJECTIVE: Epithelial cells participate in wound healing by covering wounds, but also as important mediators of wound healing processes. Topical application of the phospholipid growth factor lysophosphatidic acid (LPA) accelerates dermal wound healing and we hypothesized that LPA can play a role in human oral wound healing through its effects on human oral keratinocytes (HOK). DESIGN: HOK were isolated from gingival biopsies and exposed to LPA. The LPA receptor profile, signal transduction pathways, gene expression and secretion of selected cytokines were analyzed...

We have reported a new phenomenon in acute wound healing following the use of intracellular ATP delivery-extremely rapid tissue regeneration, which starts less than 24 h after surgery, and is accompanied by massive macrophage trafficking, in situ proliferation, and direct collagen production. This unusual process bypasses the formation of the traditional provisional extracellular matrix and significantly shortens the wound healing process. Although macrophages/monocytes are known to play a critical role in the initiation and progression of wound healing, their in situ proliferation and direct collagen production in wound healing have never been reported previously...

Background -In the heart acute injury induces a fibrotic healing response that generates collagen rich scarring that is at first protective but if inappropriately sustained can worsen heart disease. The fibrotic process is initiated by cytokines, neuroendocrine effectors and mechanical strain that promote resident fibroblast differentiation into contractile and extracellular matrix producing myofibroblasts. The mitogen-activated protein kinase (MAPK) p38α (Mapk14 gene) is known to influence the cardiac injury response, but its direct role in orchestrating programmed fibroblast differentiation and fibrosis in vivo is unknown...

Cardiac lymphatic vasculature undergoes substantial expansion in response to myocardial infarction (MI). However, there is limited information on the cellular mechanisms mediating post-MI lymphangiogenesis and accompanying fibrosis in the infarcted adult heart. Using a mouse model of permanent coronary artery ligation, we examined spatiotemporal changes in the expression of lymphendothelial and mesenchymal markers in the acutely and chronically infarcted myocardium. We found that at the time of wound granulation, a three-fold increase in the frequency of podoplanin-labeled cells occurred in the infarcted hearts compared to non-operated and sham-operated counterparts...

Liver fibrosis is a wound-healing response to chronic liver injury such as alcoholic/nonalcoholic fatty liver disease and viral hepatitis with no FDA-approved treatments. Liver fibrosis results in a continual accumulation of extracellular matrix (ECM) proteins and paves the way for replacement of parenchyma with nonfunctional scar tissue. The fibrotic condition results in drastic changes in the local mechanical, chemical, and biological microenvironment of the tissue. Liver parenchyma is supported by an efficient network of vasculature lined by liver sinusoidal endothelial cells (LSECs)...

Idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF) is a chronic, progressive interstitial lung disease characterized by irreversible fibrosis. Current disease pathogenesis assumes an aberrant wound healing process in response to repetitive injurious stimuli leading to apoptosis of epithelial cells, activation of fibroblasts and accumulation of extracellular matrix (ECM). Particularly, lung ECM is a highly dynamic structure that lies at the core of several physiological and developmental pathways. The scope of this review article is to summarize current knowledge on the role of ECM in the pathogenesis of IPF, unravel novel mechanistic data and identify future more effective therapeutic targets...

BACKGROUND: Matrix metalloproteinases (MMPs) are a family of proteinases and have the vigorous capacity to degrade all parts of the extracellular matrix. MMP enzymes strongly participate in physiological processes such as normal tissue remodeling and wound healing and in pathology of pulmonary diseases. They are released in response to environmental stimuli such as toxins and regulated by endogenous tissue inhibitors of metalloproteinases (TIMPs). Sulfur mustard (SM) is a chemical toxic which can cause severe permanent damages to lung tissues...

Human mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) are a unique progenitor cell that can be recovered from most vascularized tissues in the human body. In addition to their capability of differentiating into tissues of mesenchymal lineage, perhaps their most salient features are immunomodulation and trophic capabilities. A chronic wound is characterized by an overzealous immune response that leads to a corrosive extracellular matrix, deficiency of regulatory growth factors, hypoxia, and cellular senescence. Human MSCs are a potential therapeutic modality to recapitulate the healing paradigm through their capacity to modulate both the innate and the adaptive immune responses...

Liver fibrosis is a reversible wound-healing response to any etiology of chronic hepatic injuries. Activation of hepatic stellate cells (HSCs) is the key event in liver fibrogenesis. Generally, persistent activation and proliferation of HSCs results in liver fibrosis progression, while primary mechanisms of liver fibrosis resolution are apoptosis and reversion to a quiescent phenotype of activated HSCs. NS5ATP13 (HCV NS5A-transactivated protein 13) is involved in nucleologenesis and tumorigenesis, but its role in liver fibrosis and HSC activation remains unclear...

Scarless wound healing and functional regeneration are typical processes of the fetus, gradually lost during post-natal life, and maximally attributed to fetal skin tissue and induced by fetal skin fibroblasts. The latter have been successfully applied to post-natal wounds, with clear advantages compared with autologous dermis grafts or adult fibroblast applications. Our goal was to functionally identify and uncover key factors and mechanisms through the analysis of secretomes, the principal players in all cell therapies based on mesenchymal stromal cells (MSCs)...
