Amnion Wound Treatment in a Porcine Skin Wound Model
Previous studies from the laboratory of Sean V. Murphy (Wake Forest School of Medicine, Winston‐Salem, North Carolina, USA) reported on the development of an amnion membrane‐derived hydrogel and its application as a wound-healing agent in a mouse wound model. In their new STEM CELLS Translational Medicine article, the team returns with a new study employing a full-thickness porcine skin wound model to evaluate the wound‐healing efficacy of the amnion hydrogel and a less‐processed amnion product comprising a lyophilized amnion membrane powder. Overall, their findings demonstrate the potential translational value of this approach for the treatment of human wounds.
