A new study by Japanese and Italian scientists shows that hair follicle stem cells can help treat blisters under the skin.
According to News i and quoted by News Portal DailyThe strategy of treating human body tissues in pores and skin has been well studied; Especially since the pores and skin act as a safety layer. However, sometimes the treatment steps are not well known.
In a joint study, a group of Japanese and Italian scientists used skin pores and blisters to discover the consequences of skin tissue damage.
The scientists performed their experiments on mice that had artificially created pores and blisters on the skin. They monitored the course of treatment by monitoring gene expression and cell proliferation.
The team found that “hair follicle stem cells” (HFSCs) play an important role in the treatment of blisters. These stem cells can treat “subepidermal blisters” under the skin. Wound healing by these cells is associated with delayed growth of hair follicles in pores and skin tissue. As hair follicle stem cells shrink, another group of stem cells called “IFESCs” can help with treatment. Scientists have confirmed that the treatment of blisters is affected by the main cells that make up the skin called keratinocytes, primary pores and skin cells; However, the mechanism by which keratinocytes affect treatment is not known.
The findings of this study show the stability between wound healing and skin healing and show many perspectives for the treatment of skin pores and blisters. The methods used in this test may be used to treat blisters. The function of sweat glands was not possible in this experiment because the mice lacked sweat glands and the function of “mesenchymal cells” whose effects in the treatment of skin wounds had already been proven was not examined. Future research will focus on these points.
The study was published in the journal EMBO Stories.
