Human ex vivo wound model and whole-mount staining approach to accurately evaluate skin repair (2021)
Journal Article
Wilkinson, H. N., Kidd, A. S., Roberts, E. R., & Hardman, M. J. (2021). Human ex vivo wound model and whole-mount staining approach to accurately evaluate skin repair. Journal of visualized experiments : JoVE, 168, https://doi.org/10.3791/62326

© 2021 JoVE Creative Commons. Chronic non-healing wounds, which primarily affect the elderly and diabetic, are a significant area of clinical unmet need. Unfortunately, current chronic wound treatments are inadequate, while available pre-clinical mod...

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...

Wound healing: cellular mechanisms and pathological outcomes (2020)
Journal Article
Wilkinson, H. N., & Hardman, M. J. (2020). Wound healing: cellular mechanisms and pathological outcomes. Open Biology, 10(9), https://doi.org/10.1098/rsob.200223

Wound healing is a complex, dynamic process supported by a myriad of cellular events that must be tightly coordinated to efficiently repair damaged tissue. Derangement in wound-linked cellular behaviours, as occurs with diabetes and ageing, can lead... Read More about Wound healing: cellular mechanisms and pathological outcomes.

Senescence in Wound Repair: Emerging Strategies to Target Chronic Healing Wounds (2020)
Journal Article
Wilkinson, H. N., & Hardman, M. J. (2020). Senescence in Wound Repair: Emerging Strategies to Target Chronic Healing Wounds. Frontiers in Cell and Developmental Biology, 8, https://doi.org/10.3389/fcell.2020.00773

© Copyright © 2020 Wilkinson and Hardman. 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 cont...

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. In thi... 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. (2020). Optimising platelet secretomes to deliver robust tissue-specific regeneration. Journal of tissue engineering and regenerative medicine, 14(1), 82-98. 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 reg...

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).

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...
