Abstract: Cutaneous wound healing requires a well-orchestrated integration of the complex biological and molecular events of cell migration and proliferation, as well as extracellular matrix deposition, angiogenesis, and remodeling. Stem cells, due to their ability to differentiate into various tissue types by asymmetric replication thus represent a promising tissue repair strategy. A variety of sources, such as bone marrow, peripheral blood, umbilical cord blood, adipose tissue and skin/ hair follicles, have been utilized to isolate stem cells to modulate the healing response of acute and chronic wounds. Recent data have demonstrated the feasibility of autologous ASC therapy in cutaneous repair and regeneration. However, further research in order to solve the many questions on experimental and clinical application of stem cells in wound healing is necessary.
