Abstract

Skin is the largest and most accessible organ in the body and any compromise in its integrity results in a healing cascade. Often, underlying pathologies hamper these cascades. A tissue-engineering approach has the potential to attenuate healing in these compromised wounds. Solutions for dermal wound healing has direct clinical impact in addressing other compromised wounds in other clinical targets where matrix deposition, fibrosis or angiogenesis needs to be modulated.
