Skin inflammation is a complex process that comes in many forms, from occasional rashes, itching
and redness, to chronic conditions such as atopic eczema and psoriasis. In order to study acute inflammation, StratiCELL has developed a series of in vitro testing solutions.

Acute inflammation in the skin is a response of the immune system to various triggers. In the skin, inflammation can occur following infection, sun-burn, allergen or contact with irritant. Compared to long-lasting chronic inflammation, this short-term immune response aims to rapidly counteract the source of dysfunction. Multiple cytokines and chemokines have been long described as relevant signatures of anti-inflammatory treatments.

Based on those inflammatory biomarkers, StratiCELL has developed a range of in vitro models and testing solutions to address the efficacy of dermo-cosmetic ingredients and skin care products to reduce acute inflammation induced by specific triggers such as UV radiation, TNF-alpha, phorbol myristate acetate (PMA), bacterial lipopolysaccharides (LPS) or lipopeptides (MALP-2).
