Cell-based therapeutic intervention has emerged as a new approach to accelerate wound closure. Adipose-derived stem cells (ASCs), as a fascinating cell source, have received much attention in tissue repair and regeneration. In this study we evaluated the potential of acellular dermal matrix (ADM) scaffold serving as a carrier for the delivery of ASCs and investigated its therapeutic effects on wound healing. First, ASCs were isolated and characterized for multidifferentiation potential. ASCs–ADM grafts were then prepared, and ADM scaffold was shown to support the in vitro growth and proliferation of ASCs. Next, we analysed paracrine factors in conditioned medium and found that ASCs–ADM grafts secreted various cytokines, including VEGF, HGF, TGFβ and bFGF. Moreover, ASCs–ADM conditioned medium notably stimulated the migration and proliferation of fibroblasts. In vivo, we established an excisional wound model in diabetic rats which received phosphate-buffered saline (PBS), ADM or ASCs–ADM grafts, respectively. Our results demonstrated that implantation of ASCs–ADM significantly enhanced tissue regeneration and increased epithelialization, resulting in accelerated wound closure. Immunofluorescence analysis further indicated that capillary density was evidently increased in the ASCs–ADM group compared with the control or ADM group. In addition, western blot analysis showed that ASCs–ADM significantly increased the expression of angiogenic factors, which was consistent with in vitro data. Taken together, our results suggest that targeted delivery of ASCs via ADM scaffold accelerate diabetic wound healing through a paracrine mechanism, with enhanced granulation tissue formation and increased re-epithelialization and neovascularization.

Despite advances in wound closure techniques and devices, there is still a critical need for new methods of enhancing the healing process to achieve optimal outcomes. Recently, stem cell therapy has emerged as a new approach to accelerate wound healing. Adipose-derived stem cells (ASCs) hold great promise for wound healing, because they are multipotential stem cells capable of differentiation into various cell lineages and secretion of angiogenic growth factors. The aim of this study was to eval...

We have used in vitro scratch assays to examine the relative contribution of dermal fibroblasts and keratinocytes in the wound repair process and to test the influence of mesenchymal stem cell (MSC) secreted factors on both skin cell types. Scratch assays were established using single cell and co-cultures of L929 fibroblasts and HaCaT keratinocytes, with wound closure monitored via time-lapse microscopy. Both in serum supplemented and serum free conditions, wound closure was faster in L929 fibro...

Human adipose tissue-derived mesenchymal stem cells (hASCs) are useful for regeneration of inflamed or injured tissues. To identify secreted hASC proteins during inflammation, hASCs were exposed to tumor necrosis factor-α (TNF-α) and conditioned media derived from hASCs were analyzed by liquid chromatography coupled with tandem mass spectrometry. We identified 187 individual proteins as secreted proteins (secretome) in hASC-conditioned media; 118 proteins were secreted at higher levels upon TNF-...

Ischemia is a potentially fatal medical event that is associated with as many as 30% of all deaths. Stem cell therapy offers significant therapeutic promise, but poor survival following transplantation to ischemic tissue limits its efficacy. Here we demonstrate that nanosphere-mediated growth factor delivery can enhance the survival of transplanted human adipose-derived stromal cells (hADSCs) and secretion of human angiogenic growth factors per cell, and substantially improve therapeutic efficac...

Adipose-derived stem cells (ADSCs) have been shown to induce wound-healing effects. Because inflammation near the wound area induces oxygen deficiency, it is interesting to elucidate the effect of hypoxia on the function of ADSCs. In this work, we asked: (1) does hypoxia alter the wound-healing function of ADSCs? and (2) what are the major factors responsible for the alteration in the wound-healing function? Effect of hypoxia on the proliferation of ADSCs was first examined that hypoxia (2% O2) ...

Wounds, characterized by leading to a loss of integrity of the skin and a major cause of morbidity and mortality, are common challenges encountered in plastic and reconstructive surgery. The primary goals of treatment are rapid closure, restoration of function, and aesthetical satisfaction. Adult stem cells may provide new strategies to treat cutaneous wounds because of their prolonged self-renewal capacity and ability to differentiate into various tissues. In the past five years, some researche...

Antibacterial activity and promoting wound healing are two important characteristics of ideal dressings. The previous work has successfully prepared a stem cell seeded polyvinyl alcohol (PVA) hydrogel dressing, which could promote wound healing by active factors secreted from the dressing. However, a lack of antibacterial activity might limit its better application. In this study, a photo-active gelatin (Az-Gel) modified stem cell seeded bilayer PVA hydrogel dressings with silver nanoparticles l...
