Abstract Background Macrophages play important roles during wound healing, and delayed healing in diabetics is associated with sustained inflammation. M1 type macrophage is recognized to secrete excessive amount of tumor necrosis factor-alpha (TNF-α) as compared to its M2 counterpart. Objectives We hypothesized that macrophage polarization is different between diabetic and normal rats during skin wounding and has direct impact on keratinocyte function in the context of re-epithelialization. Methods Skin wounds were created in diabetic and control rats. The phenotypes of infiltrating macrophages, the levels of TNF-α, and the rate of wound closure were determined. Using cell model, the effects of M1 type macrophage on keratinocyte migration were evaluated, and the potential regulatory pathways were determined. Results The percentage of M1 macrophages and the levels of TNF-α expression were significantly higher in the perilesional area of diabetic rats as compared to control. The condition media (CM) from M1 type macrophage upregulated tissue inhibitor metalloproteinases (TIMP)-1 expression in keratinocytes and significantly reduced keratinocyte migratory capacity. Addition of neutralizing TNF-α antibody to the CM or gene-silencing of TIMP1 in keratinocytes restored the keratinocyte migratory capacity. Treating wounds of diabetic rats with TNF-α antagonist improved the wound healing process. Conclusions In summary, high glucose wound environment harbored more M1 macrophages infiltration, an event that created excess TNF-α micro-environment. TNF-α upregulated TIMP1 expression in keratinocytes and resulted in impaired keratinocyte migration. Taken together, these events contributed to impaired wound healing during diabetic condition, and targeting TNF-α is a potential therapeutic option to improve diabetic wound healing.

AbstractDiabetic foot is a severe public health issue, yet rare studies investigated its global epidemiology. Here we performed a systematic review and meta-analysis through searching PubMed, EMBASE, ISI Web of science, and Cochrane database. We found that that global diabetic foot ulcer prevalence was 6.3% (95%CI: 5.4–7.3%), which was higher in males (4.5%, 95%CI: 3.7–5.2%) than in females (3.5%, 95%CI: 2.8–4.2%), and higher in type 2 diabetic patients (6.4%, 95%CI: 4.6–8.1%) than in type 1 dia...

Significance: Matrix metalloproteinases (MMPs) are present in both acute and chronic wounds. They play a pivotal role, with their inhibitors, in regulating extracellular matrix degradation and deposition that is essential for wound reepithelialization. The excess protease activity can lead to a chronic nonhealing wound. The timed expression and activation of MMPs in response to wounding are vital for successful wound healing. MMPs are grouped into eight families and display extensive homology wi...

Keloids are defined as overgrowths of scar tissue resulting from abnormal wound healing. They are characterized by excessive dermal deposition of thick, hyalinized collagen bundles resulting from an imbalance between the production and degradation of extracellular matrix (ECM) components. Matrix metalloproteinases (MMPs) and tissue inhibitors of metalloproteinases (TIMPs) are two important regulators of ECM degradation and remodeling. To evaluate the role played by knockdown of TIMPs in keloid f...

Impaired wound healing frequently occurs in patients with diabetes. Interleukin (IL)-8 production by keratinocyte is responsible for recruiting neutrophils during healing. Intense inflammation is associated with diabetic wounds, while reduction of neutrophil infiltration is associated with enhanced healing. We hypothesized that increased neutrophil recruitment by keratinocytes may contribute to the delayed healing of diabetic wounds. Using cultured human keratinocytes and a diabetic rat model, t...

The macrophage (MΦ) is an essential cellular first responder in the innate immune system, sensing, alerting, removing and destroying intrinsic and extrinsic pathogens. While congenital aplasia of granulocytes, T or B lymphocytes leads to serious disease, lack of MΦs is incompatible with life. The MΦ, however, is not a monomorphic entity. These constructers, repairers and defenders of the body are diverse in form and function. What controls MΦ phenotype is beginning to be understood and involves ...

Abstract The hypothesis of this study was that cells of the monocyte/macrophage lineage (Mo/Mp) exhibit an impaired transition from pro-inflammatory to pro-healing phenotypes in wounds of diabetic mice, which contributes to deficient healing. Mo/Mp isolated from excisional wounds in non-diabetic db/+ mice exhibited a pro-inflammatory phenotype on day 5 post-injury, with high level expression of the pro-inflammatory molecules interleukin-1β, matrix metalloprotease-9 and inducible nitric oxide syn...

The macrophage is a prominent inflammatory cell in wounds, but its role in healing remains incompletely understood. Macrophages have many functions in wounds, including host defence, the promotion and resolution of inflammation, the removal of apoptotic cells, and the support of cell proliferation and tissue restoration following injury. Recent studies suggest that macrophages exist in several different phenotypic states within the healing wound and that the influence of these cells on each stag...

Abstract After recruitment to the wound bed, monocytes differentiate into macrophages. Macrophages play a central role in all stages of wound healing and orchestrate the wound healing process. Their functional phenotype is dependent on the wound microenvironment, which changes during healing, hereby altering macrophage phenotype. During the early and short inflammatory phase macrophages exert pro-inflammatory functions like antigen-presenting, phagocytosis and the production of inflammatory cyto...

The phenotypic switching called epithelial-to-mesenchymal transition is frequently associated with epithelial tumor cell progression from a comparatively benign to an aggressive, invasive malignancy. Coincident with the emergence of such cellular plasticity is an altered response to transforming growth factor-β (TGF-β) as well as epidermal growth factor (EGF) receptor amplification. TGF-β in the tumor microenvironment promotes invasive traits largely through reprogramming gene expression, which ...

Surgical treatment of pelvic organ prolapse often includes the use of patients’ vaginal connective tissue. Wound healing appears to play an important part in the success of such procedures. The aim of this study was to describe the effect of age on inflammatory processes, specifically macrophage response, involved in vaginal wound healing. Twenty-five young (12 weeks old) and 25 old (12 months old) virgin female Fischer rats underwent a standardized 9-mm posterior midline vaginal incision. Tissu...
