In most countries, injuries related to burn are considered as one of the cause of a high mortality rate.  When the integrity of the skin has been breached it can no longer protect us from water loss, infections, sudden changes in temperature, radiation, etc.  A person with skin burns usually had to undergo a long and thorough process of skin grafting.  Fortunately, recent advancement in the field of technology found a better way to repair those damaged skin tissues.  It seems that things are looking brighter for injuries relating to broken skins.  Stem cells skin regeneration does not only protect us from water loss and other infections, it can also achieve a skin rebirth at a satisfying rate.  Stem cell therapy will improve the healing process and eventually restore the normal function of the damaged skin.  However, it is important to note that a complete regeneration is highly impossible.

 

Stem cells skin regeneration that can be used to repair  the broken skin tissue are ESC or the Embryonic  Stem Cell and the Adult Stem Cell,  Of the two process, Adult Stem Cell is the more popular since Embryonic Stem Cell is limited due to  some ethical considerations.  Adult Stem Cells also comes in different types.  MSC also known as mesenchymal stem cell can provide a rapid repair by transplanting an adequate amount of allogenic.

 

Regeneration of the skin after an injury takes a long time, most often than not one has to keep a souvenir-scar that will remain for a lifetime.  Stem cells skin regeneration provides a treatment to avoid the formation of scar and of course as we mentioned above, the speedy healing process.  During a skin injury, there is a high probability that skin cell will die since it is no longer attached to the body.  There is, however, a protein that can stop the death of the cell; it is called IAP or the inhibitors of aptosis protein.

 

Researchers conducted an experiment on a mouse with a badly damaged skin.  They found out that by shutting down the IAP of the mouse the wound was reduced by at least 80 percent.  There were some signs that the skin was repaired, but it has not completely regenerated.  They found out that the death of the cell is likely responsible for the slow regeneration process.  Although the actual healing process is yet to achieve on that rate, a quick repair of open skin tissue is imperative to prevent the breach of infections.  They also added stem cells skin regeneration to a mouse whose skin was impaired.  They noticed a swift regeneration and a minimal scar formation.  Compared to the other mice with death cell abilities that bear a large scar, the process of stem cell looks promising.

 

Unfortunately the use of stem cells skin regeneration has yet to be performed on a human.  As for now, the use of stem cell treatment is unlikely to become a normal practice, not until it becomes affordable and convenient for the average people
