Mesenchymal stromal cells from horses show potential for healing skin wounds – Horsetalk

By raymumme

Equine mesenchymal stromal cells have been shown to have antibacterial properties, raising the possibility they could aid in healing troublesome skin wounds in humans and horses. Mesenchymal stem cells, or MSCs, are multipotent connective-tissue cells that can differentiate into a variety of cell types, including bone cartilage, muscle and fat. Chronic skin wounds in humans are common and their treatment is often complicated by pathogenic bacteria
