Abstract

BIOPAD® is an ivory-white soft sponge, made exclusively of lyophilized type I native heterologous collagen extracted from horse flexor tendon, gelatine free, that keeps its native structure specific to the body’s skin tissue. BIOPAD® is an active dressing, playing an active role in all stages of wound healing process, stimulating granulation tissue growth and enhancing regeneration tissues. It ensures balance between absorption and humidity at wound surface, gaseous exchange of soft tissues during healing process, barrier to prevent bacterial infections and it is completely non-adherent. The use of BIOPAD® is painless for the patient and does not require removal or change of dressing. In this work, we evaluated the effect of BIOPAD® on fibroblasts behavior in term of cell viability, survival and growth and collagen production. The expression levels of some adhesion and traction-resistance related genes (ELN, DSP, FN1, FBN1, ITGB1, ITGA1, ITGA5, ITGA2, COL1A1, COL3A1) were analyzed using real time Reverse Transcription-Polymerase Chain Reaction (real time RT-PCR). All genes, except for ELN, DSP, ITGB1 and ITGA1 are up-regulated after 48 h of treatment. Altogether, our results point out the good potential of BIOPAD® as a biocompatible and regenerative tool in medicine.
