Cutaneous wound healing is a complex physiological process requiring a sequence of molecular and cellular events, categorized into the following phases: exudative (inflammatory), proliferative, and maturation with extracellular matrix remodelling. StratiCELL evaluates the properties of actives and formulations to favour those wound healing phases, using in vitro and ex vivo assays targeting:
- cell proliferation and migration,
- fibroblast contraction,
- expression of key repairing biomarkers including cytokine secretions and protease activities.
