Researchers have discovered that curcumin can be an effective biomaterial in healing cutaneous wounds. The study, which was published in the journal Stem Cell Research and Therapy explored a specific bone marrow-derived mesenchymal stem cell (BMSC) sheet, in particular, its effects on the immune response on wound regeneration.
Researchers concluded that curcumin exhibited a positive outcome in the BMSC healing process, as well as an immune microenvironment that promotes regeneration for cutaneous wounds.
