INTRODUCTION After injury, tissue regeneration is characterized by overlapping phases that involve hemostasis, inflammation, cell proliferation, and the remodeling phase of repair. These processes encompass macrophage accumulation, fibroblast ingrowth, matrix deposition, and angiogenesis into the wound site [1, 2]. The inflammatory phase is central to healing, as infiltrating immune cells initiate and trigger repair by secretion of growth [...]

Langerin is a C-type lectin receptor that is expressed on Langerhans cells and langerin positive dermal dendritic cells in the skin. Little is known about the function of langerin+ cells in wound healing. In this study the effects of ablation of langerin+ cells on healing of a full-thickness excision wound were investigated using the langerin-DTR depletable mouse. Strikingly, depletion of langerin+ cells resulted in more rapid reduction in wound area. Accelerated wound healing in the langerin+ c...

Abstract Interferon (IFN)-γ-inducing interleukin (IL)-18 is a crucial inflammatory cytokine systemically provided by monocytes. It is counteracted by IL-18 binding protein (IL-18BP), a decoy receptor that displays IFNγ-inducibility thus curbing inflammation by negative feedback. Since IL18BP inducibility is pronounced in human epithelial cells but diminished in monocytes, differential IL18BP regulation was investigated herein in both types of cells. Interestingly, DNA-demethylating 5-aza-2′-deox...

Excessive subconjunctival scarring is the main reason of failure of glaucoma filtration surgery. We analyzed conjunctival and systemic gene expression patterns after non penetrating deep sclerectomy (NPDS). To find expression patterns related to surgical failure and their correlation with the clinical outcomes. This study consisted of two consecutive stages. The first was a prospective analysis of wound-healing gene expression profile of six patients after NPDS. Conjunctival samples and peripher...

Mouse fetuses up to 16 day of embryonic development and nude (Foxn1- deficient) mice are examples of animals that undergo regenerative (scar-free) skin healing. The expression of transcription factor Foxn1 in the epidermis of mouse fetuses begins at embryonic day 16.5 which coincides with the transition point from scar-free to scar-forming skin wound healing. In the present study, we tested the hypothesis that Foxn1 expression in the skin is an essential condition to establish the adult skin phe...

ABSTRACTStudies have shown that honeys from around the world can inhibit the growth of a range of dermatologically important microbes. In addition to reports of the antimicrobial properties of honey, a number of recent in vitro and in vivo studies suggest that honey is able to modulate immunological parameters related to the skin immune system. Paradoxically, both immune-stimulatory and anti-inflammatory effects have been observed. In this review, scientific research investigating the immunomodu...

IL-18 is an important mediator involved in chronic inflammatory conditions such as cutaneous lupus erythematosus, psoriasis and chronic eczema. An imbalance between IL-18 and its endogenous antagonist IL-18 binding protein (BP) may account for increased IL-18 activity. IL-27 is a cytokine with dual function displaying pro- and anti-inflammatory properties. Here we provide evidence for a yet not described anti-inflammatory mode of action on skin resident cells. Human keratinocytes and surprisingl...

Skin wound healing is a complex biological process that requires the regulation of different cell types, including immune cells, keratinocytes, fibroblasts, and endothelial cells. It consists of 5 stages: hemostasis, inflammation, granulation tissue formation, re-epithelialization, and wound remodeling. While inflammation is essential for successful wound healing, prolonged or excess inflammation can result in nonhealing chronic wounds. Lactoferrin, an iron-binding glycoprotein secreted from gla...

Erythroid differentiation regulator (Erdr1) was first discovered in mouse leukemia cell lines and functions as a stress-related survival factor. This study investigated whether Erdr1 regulates murine melanoma progression, as well as the mechanism involved in Erdr1-regulated metastasis. The expression of Erdr1 is negatively correlated with IL-18 expression, which has a pro-cancer effect in melanoma. To study the role of Erdr1 as an anti-cancer factor, cell migration, invasion, and proliferation w...

Matrix metalloproteinase-9 (MMP-9) is implicated in the invasion and metastasis of breast cancer cells. We investigated the modulatory effects of nitric oxide (NO) on the 12-O-tetradecanoylphorbol 13-acetate (TPA)-induced MMP-9 expression in MCF-7 cells. Different chemical NO donors inhibited the extracellular content of TPA-induced MMP-9 protein and MMP-9 activity as assessed by gelatin-zymography and ELISA, respectively. Concomitant with the reduction in the extracellular MMP-9 content NO stro...
