Adipose tissue derived stem cells represent a new therapy for dermal wound healing. These cells, after transplantation, are recruited into wounded Skin and contribute to wound repair by transdifferentiation into skin cells and participate in dermal wound healing in physiological and pathological conditions and promote reepithelialization and angiogenesis. Stem cells applied on radiation induced cutaneous wounds have shown significant beneficial effect that are of clinical significance to repair skin injuries in patients after accidental irradiation.
