Tailored ‘cell sheets’ to improve post-operative wound closing and healing

0

Scientists have designed a new method for post-operative wound closing and healing that is both fast and effective. This strategy revolves around engineered ‘cell sheets’ — or layers of skin-based cells. The procedure culminates in a wound dressing that is custom made for a specific cut or lesion that can be used to effectively treat open skin areas after surgeries. The findings were published in Scientific Reports on July 18th.
