Cellular senescence is a fundamental stress response that restrains tumour formation. Yet, senescence cells are also present in non-cancerous states, accumulating exponentially with chronological age and contributing to age- and diabetes-related cell...

Characterisation of a New Human Alveolar Macrophage-like Cell Line (Daisy) (2019)
Journal Article
Sadofsky, L. R., Hayman, Y. A., Vance, J., Cervantes, J. L., Fraser, S. D., Wilkinson, H. N., …Morice, A. H. (2019). Characterisation of a New Human Alveolar Macrophage-like Cell Line (Daisy). Lung, 197(6), 687-698. https://doi.org/10.1007/s00408-019-00288-3

Purpose: There is currently no true macrophage cell line and in vitro experiments requiring these cells currently require mitogenic stimulation of a macrophage precursor cell line (THP-1) or ex vivo maturation of circulating primary monocytes. Here w... Read More about Characterisation of a New Human Alveolar Macrophage-like Cell Line (Daisy).

Optimising platelet secretomes to deliver robust tissue‐specific regeneration (2019)
Journal Article
Scully, D., Sfyri, P., Wilkinson, H. N., Acebes‐Huerta, A., Verpoorten, S., Muñoz‐Turrillas, M. C., …Matsakas, A. (in press). Optimising platelet secretomes to deliver robust tissue‐specific regeneration. Journal of tissue engineering and regenerative medicine, https://doi.org/10.1002/term.2965

Promoting cell proliferation is the cornerstone of most tissue regeneration therapies. As platelet‐based applications promote cell division and can be customised for tissue‐specific efficacy, this makes them strong candidates for developing novel r...

Tissue iron promotes wound repair via M2 macrophage polarisation and the chemokines CCL17 and CCL22 (2019)
Journal Article
Wilkinson, H. N., Roberts, E. R., Stafford, A. R., Banyard, K. L., Matteucci, P., Mace, K. A., & Hardman, M. J. (2019). Tissue iron promotes wound repair via M2 macrophage polarisation and the chemokines CCL17 and CCL22. American Journal of Pathology, 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...

Reduced iron in diabetic wounds: An oxidative stress-dependent role for STEAP3 in extracellular matrix deposition and remodelling (2019)
Journal Article
Wilkinson, H. N., Upson, S. E., Banyard, K. L., Knight, R., Mace, K. A., & Hardman, M. J. (2019). Reduced iron in diabetic wounds: An oxidative stress-dependent role for STEAP3 in extracellular matrix deposition and remodelling. Journal of Investigative Dermatology, 139(11), 2368-2377.e7. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.jid.2019.05.014

Iron is crucial for maintaining normal bodily function, with well-documented roles in erythropoiesis, haemostasis and inflammation. Despite this, little is known about the temporal regulation of iron during wound healing, nor how iron contributes to...

Elevated local senescence in diabetic wound healing is linked to pathological repair via CXCR2. (2019)
Journal Article
Wilkinson, H. N., Clowes, C., Banyard, K. L., Matteuci, P., Mace, K., & Hardman, M. J. (2019). Elevated local senescence in diabetic wound healing is linked to pathological repair via CXCR2. Journal of Investigative Dermatology, 139(5), 1171-1181.e6. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.jid.2019.01.005

Cellular senescence can be broadly defined as a stable, yet essentially irreversible, loss of proliferative capacity. Historically, senescence is described as a negative outcome of advanced cellular age. It is now clear, however, that senescence repr...

A novel silver bioactive glass elicits antimicrobial efficacy against Pseudomonas aeruginosa and Staphylococcus aureus in an ex vivo skin wound biofilm model. Frontiers in Microbiology, 9(JUL), https://doi.org/10.3389/fmicb.2018.01450

Biofilm infection is now understood to be a potent contributor to the recalcitrant nature of chronic wounds. Bacterial biofilms evade the host immune response and show increased resistance to antibiotics. Along with improvements in antibiotic steward...
