Oral Diseases (2011) 17, 541–549 Wound healing is a complex biological process that affects multiple tissue types. Wounds in the oral cavity are particularly challenging given the variety of tissue types that exist in close proximity to one another. The goal of regenerative medicine is to facilitate the rapid replacement of lost or damaged tissue with tissue that is functional, and physiologically similar to what previously existed. This review provides a general overview of wound healing and regenerative medicine, focusing specifically on how recent advances in the fields of stem cell biology, tissue engineering, and oral disease could translate into improved clinical outcomes.

Permanent scars form upon healing of tissue injuries such as those caused by ischemia (myocardial infarction, stroke), trauma, surgery, and inflammation. Current options in reducing scar formation are limited to local intervention. We have designed a systemically administered, target-seeking biotherapeutic for scar prevention. It consists of a vascular targeting peptide that specifically recognizes angiogenic blood vessels and extravasates into sites of injury, fused with a therapeutic molecule,...

Induced pluripotent stem (iPS) cells are one of the most promising sources for cell therapy in regenerative medicine. Using a patient's own genetically identical and histocompatible cells is the ideal way to practice personalized regenerative medicine. For personalized iPS cell therapy, the prerequisites for cell source preparation are a simple and safe procedure, no aesthetic or functional damage, and quick wound healing. Oral mucosa fibroblasts (OFs) may have high potential to fulfill these re...

The highly regenerative capacity of the human adult oral mucosa suggests the existence of a robust stem cell (SC) population in its lamina propria (OMLP). The purpose of this study was to characterize the availability, growth, immunophenotype, and potency of this presumable SC population. Cells positive for the embryonic stem cell transcription factors Oct4 and Sox2 and for p75 formed distinct cord-like structure in the OMLP. Regardless of donor age, trillions of cells, termed human oral mucosa ...

Generation of induced pluripotent stem (iPS) cells holds a great promise for regenerative medicine and other aspects of clinical applications. Many types of cells have been successfully reprogrammed into iPS cells in the mouse system; however, reprogramming human cells have been more difficult. To date, human dermal fibroblasts are the most accessible and feasible cell source for iPS generation. Dental tissues derived from ectomesenchyme harbor mesenchymal-like stem/progenitor cells and some of ...

Wound healing, as a normal biological process in the human body, is achieved through four precisely and highly programmed phases: hemostasis, inflammation, proliferation, and remodeling. For a wound to heal successfully, all four phases must occur in the proper sequence and time frame. Many factors can interfere with one or more phases of this process, thus causing improper or impaired wound healing. This article reviews the recent literature on the most significant factors that affect cutaneous...

Abstract Background Scar formation following skin trauma can have devastating consequences causing physiological and psychosocial concerns. Currently, there are no accepted predictable treatments to prevent scarring which emphasizes a need for a better understanding of the wound healing and scar formation process. Objectives Previously it was shown that healing of small experimental wounds in the oral mucosa of red Duroc pigs results in significantly reduced scar formation as compared with equiv...

Multipotent mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) represent a promising autologous source for regenerative medicine. Because MSCs can be isolated from adult tissues, they represent an attractive cell source for autologous transplantation. A straightforward therapeutic strategy in the field of stem cell-based regenerative medicine is the transplantation of functional differentiated cells as cell replacement for the lost or defective cells affected by disease. However, this strategy requires the capacity ...

Scar formation is a common, unwanted result of wound healing in skin, but the mechanisms that regulate it are still largely unknown. Interestingly, wound healing in the oral mucosa proceeds faster than in skin and clinical observations have suggested that mucosal wounds rarely scar. To test this concept, we created identical experimental wounds in the oral mucosa and skin in red Duroc pigs and compared wound healing and scar development over time. We also compared the pig oral mucosal wound heal...

This manuscript reviews the current state of research on the regenerative properties of trodusquemine, a promising naturally occurring compound with the potential to be employed to regenerate skin and mucosal wounds, particularly when the wound healing capacity is diminished. The skin and mucous membranes lining body cavities differ in their intrinsic regenerative potential, which can be further modified by local and systemic biomedical factors that ultimately delay the natural course of wound h...

Wound healing is an important and complicated process that includes four highly integrated and overlapping phases, haemostasis, inflammation, proliferation and tissue remodelling. Nerve growth factor (NGF) was the first member of a family of neurotrophic factors to be discovered, and is an essential neurotrophic factor for the development and maintenance of the central and peripheral nervous systems. Several studies have proposed that NGF and its receptors, tropomyosin-related kinase receptor 1 ...

Abstract Objectives This study investigates the post-extraction storage period of human dental pulp stem cells (hDPSCs) for stem cell banking by investigating the viability, function, mineralization, and gene expression of hDPSCs isolated from extracted teeth after 1 hr, 6 hrs and 24 hrs post-tooth extraction. Design hDPSCs were extracted from the pulp of impacted third molar teeth after 1 hr, 6 hrs, and 24 hrs after extraction. The mesenchymal stem cell (MSCs) properties of three groups of cell...

Electrical stimulation (ES) is known to affect the wound healing process by modulating skin cell behaviors. However, the conventional clinical devices that can generate ES for promoting wound healing require patient hospitalization due to large-scale of the extracorporeal devices. Herein, we introduce a disposable photovoltaic patch that can be applied to skin wound sites to control cellular microenvironment for promoting wound healing by generating ES. In vitro experiment results show that exog...

Skin and skin appendages protect the body from harmful environment and prevent internal organs from dehydration. Superficial epidermal wounds usually heal without scarring, however, deep dermal wound healing commonly ends up with nonfunctioning scar formation with substantial loss of skin appendage. Wound healing is one of the most complex dynamic biological processes, during which a cascade of biomolecules combine with stem cell influx and matrix synthesis and synergistically contribute to woun...

This work describes a microfludic cell culture device embedded with microstructured posts fabricated by a photolithography technique and a replica-molding technique. BALB/3T3 fibroblast cells were cultured inside the PDMS microfludic chip to form a confluent state, and an external pressure was applied to the top part of the microfluidic chip to remove the cells from the contact areas of the posts. The applied pressure was removed after the formation of wound areas in the cell layer, and the woun...

Reepithelialization and wound closure are the desired outcome for several ulcerative conditions. Such resolution reduces the possibility of wound contamination and maintenance of the injury and improves the reestablishment of tissue morphology and functions. Investigators are seeking adjuvant therapies that can accelerate wound healing and are developing new strategies for clinical applications. This study compared the effects of epidermal growth factor (EGF) application and low-level laser ther...
