Researchers from Rockefeller University were able to conduct a series of experiments in which they were able to detect the connection between the healing of wounds on the body of the man and his age. As explained by scientists, the older people get, the more disrupted the interaction between skin cells and their immune components that are responsible for the regeneration process. To this conclusion the scientific staff came after experiments with laboratory mice. In older individuals wounds on the skin lasted much longer than their young counterparts. According to scientists, this is due to a molecular change in the composition of the skin. Wound healing, according to experts, is one of the most complicated processes in the human body. Skin cells, together with immune cells, are beginning to migrate to tighten the wound. However, during the life of the people, the connection between these two types of cells is lost, and that affects more the long-lasting regeneration. In the future, the researchers intend to begin developing drugs, contributing to the development of the desired cells for rapid healing of skin lesions.
