Under the title “Characterization of the human ridged and non-ridged skin: a comprehensive histological, histochemical and immunohistochemical analysis”, the NanoGSkin project coordinator team has published the first paper related to the NanoGSkin project. In this paper, researchers have compared different types of skin sources (dorsal hand skin, palmar hand skin, dorsal foot skin) with the aim of improving the NanoGSkin skin substitute. Skins were histologically, histochemically and immunohistochemically analysed, showing significant differences between ridged and non-ridged skins. These results will contribute to optimize a future generation of bioartificial skin substitutes by tissue engineering techniques.
