Ulyanovsk scientists develop semi-artificial human skin

21 Apr '17
Scientists at a research center of the Ulyanovsk State Pedagogical University in the mid-Volga area have developed a material almost identical to the human skin.

The analog of the skin is said to consist of both natural cells and some artificial components. According to Elena Antonova, the center director, they have developed three types of molecular-cell products that could even now be used to treat skin damages, burn- or trauma-related ones, for example, or trophic ulcers, as well as in cosmetology.

The new skin is not 100% natural; however, the body is reported not to reject it in transplantology surgery, and the transplant is believed to perform all the standard functions of the natural human skin. The skin analog is also relatively easy and inexpensive to make and would therefore be affordable for a broad range of medical institutions.

The Ulyanovsk developers have already had their invention lab tested in several local clinics, including oncology-focused ones.
