Alternative delivery of keratinocytes for epidermal replacement

Research output: Chapter in Book/Conference paperChapter


In bridging the gap between the laboratory and the patient it is essential to consider the differences in the environment the cells are exposed to in order optimize their performance and achieve the goal of expedient wound closure. Successful delivery systems for keratinocytes to the wound bed must consider the viability and proliferation potential of the cells with protection to achieve a mature epithelial layer. The delivery systems are described in two groups, direct delivery or with the use of carrier. The clinical use of pre-confluent keratinocytes has been widely reported to be effective in augmenting wound healing.
