Japanese scientists have invented a new artificial skin, the treatment significantly
Artificial Skin Research Center of Kitasato University in Japan Kuroyanagi Professor Nengguang, has developed a new type of artificial skin, severe burns and bedsores patients to bring the gospel.
Severe burns and bed sores in patients with skin lesions up to the dermal layer, skin grafting is difficult to cure. The artificial skin developed by Professor Kuroyanagi special sponge layer made of collagen and hyaluronic acid sponge attached to the skin cells of volunteers.
This artificial skin usually need cryopreservation and thawing can use when needed. The artificial skin was attached to the wound, the collagen sponge, hyaluronic acid, and sponge the surface of the skin cells to promote the patient's own skin cell proliferation and wound healing. Wound healing, part of the sponge will be wound absorption, originally attached to human cells in the artificial skin will fall off naturally.
Clinical trials conducted in 21 medical institutions in Japan, in addition to serious infections in patients with wound more than 90% of patients with a new type of artificial skin, the treatment effect is obvious.
Professor Kuroyanagi said, the past, artificial skin can also develop a patient's own skin cells made, but this technique can not be used in case of emergency. In addition, elderly patients with difficult skin cell proliferation, traditional technology can also be difficult for such patients. The new artificial skin to overcome these shortcomings.
