Stem Cells Utilized to Grow Artificial Skin for Burn Victims

Stem Cells used to grow artificial skin in burn victims

Researchers at the University of Grenada have developed a method to grow skin with stem cells, which can be utilized to treat burn victims. The study used mesenchymal stem cells [MSC] recovered from Wharton’s jelly to create healthy skin regenerating epithelia.

Currently, after a major burn, patients must wait several weeks for artificial skin to be grown and applied. This breakthrough in tissue engineering eliminates the need for patients to wait several weeks for treatment. “Creating this new type of skin using stem cells, which can be stored in tissue banks, means that it can be used instantly when injuries are caused” says Professor Antonio Campos, one of the authors of the study.

MSCs can also be recovered from teeth. Today, preserving your own stem cells is made simple and affordable for families and individuals by banking dental stem cells.
