Artificial SkinArtificial human skin created from agarose-fibrin biomaterial was grafted onto mice with optimal results regarding functionality, development and maturation by a team of scientist from the University of Granada.  The finding could be useful in developing new treatment approaches for dermatological pathologies.

The skin created in the laboratory showed adequate biocompatibility rates with the recipient and no rejection, dehiscence or infection was registered. Additionally, the skin of all animals used in the study started to show granulation after six days from implantation. Within the following twenty days, cicatrization was complete.

The agarose-fibrin biomaterial “added resistance, firmness and elasticity to the skin” –according to Prof. Jiménez Rodríguez who conducted the research. “Definitively, we have created a more stable skin with similar functionality to normal human skin.”
