Oral mucosal wounds heal faster than skin wounds, yet the role of microRNAs in this differential healing has never been examined. To delineate the role of microRNAs in this site-specific injury response, we first compared the microRNAome of uninjured skin and oral mucosa in mice. A total of 53 tissue-specific microRNAs for skin and oral mucosa epithelium were identified. The most striking difference was the high abundance of miR-10a/b in skin (accounting for 21.10% of the skin microRNAome) as co...

Aging and cellular senescence are known contributors to the pathophysiology of diabetic nonhealing wounds. However, the dynamic interplay of senescent cells in diabetic wounds is not well understood. Wilkinson et al. show that macrophages, which constitute a large portion of accumulated senescent cells, release a senescence-associated secretory profile (SASP) that is rich in CXCR2 ligands, which drive fibroblasts toward a profibrotic and senescent phenotype. A selective CXCR2 antagonist promoted...

Superparamagnetic iron oxide nanoparticles (SPIONs) are often encapsulated into drug-carrying nano/microsized particles for simultaneous magnetic resonance (MR) imaging and treatment of diseased tissues. Unfortunately, encapsulated SPIONs may have a limited ability to modulate the T2-weighted relaxation of water protons, but this insight has not been examined systematically. This study demonstrates that SPIONs immobilized on 200 nm diameter poly(lactic-co-glycolic acid) (PLGA) nanoparticles usin...

Although the inflammatory and proliferative phases of wound healing have been well described, much less is known about how healing resolves. During the resolution phase, pruning of the capillary bed and maturation of capillaries occurs and influences the final strength and fidelity of the wound. PEDF, an endogenous anti-angiogenic factor, is produced in wounds and may contribute to the removal of capillaries during wound resolution. This study utilized PEDF−/− mice to examine how PEDF influences...

Background Pathological scarring in wounds is a prevalent clinical outcome with limited prognostic options. The objective of this study was to investigate whether cellular signaling proteins could be used as prognostic biomarkers of pathological scarring in traumatic skin wounds.

Hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) is an attractive chemical because of its bleaching properties in paper and pulp industry and as a disinfectant in the food, water, and medical industries. However, it is important to monitor the residual H2O2 level after its usage and prevent any unintended health problems or chemical reactions. Most H2O2 sensors often utilize fluorophores or electrical circuitry that requires an additional irradiation or a digital display. To this end, this study presents a 3,3′,5,5′-te...

Diabetes Mellitus Type II (DM2) is a growing international health concern with no end in sight. Complications of DM2 involve a myriad of comorbidities including the serious complications of poor wound healing, chronic ulceration, and resultant limb amputation. In skin wound healing, which has definite, orderly phases, diabetes leads to improper function at all stages. While the etiology of chronic, non-healing diabetic wounds is multi-faceted, the progression to a non-healing phenotype is closel...
