Cellular benefits of single-use negative pressure wound therapy demonstrated in a novel ex vivo human skin wound model (2020)
Journal Article
Wilkinson, H. N., Longhorne, F. L., Roberts, E. R., Brownhill, V. R., & Hardman, M. J. (in press). Cellular benefits of single-use negative pressure wound therapy demonstrated in a novel ex vivo human skin wound model. Wound Repair and Regeneration, https://doi.org/10.1111/wrr.12888

Negative pressure wound therapy is a widely used treatment for chronic, nonhealing wounds. Surprisingly, few studies have systematically evaluated the cellular and molecular effects of negative pressure treatment on human skin. In addition, no study...

Tissue iron promotes wound repair via M2 macrophage polarisation and the chemokines CCL17 and CCL22 (2019)
Journal Article
Roberts, E. R., Stafford, A. R., Mace, K. A., Wilkinson, H. N., Roberts, E. R., Stafford, A. R., …Hardman, M. J. (2019). Tissue iron promotes wound repair via M2 macrophage polarisation and the chemokines CCL17 and CCL22. American Journal of Pathology, 189(11), 2196-2208. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.ajpath.2019.07.015

Macrophages are important for effective iron recycling and erythropoiesis, but they also play a crucial role in wound healing, orchestrating tissue repair. Recently, we demonstrated a significant accumulation of iron in healing wounds and a requireme...
