We studied viability of adenosine-modified monocytes after cryopreservation and their regenerative potential. The optimal method of cell cryopreservation was the use of serum-free medium followed by storage in liquid nitrogen. Injections of adenosine-modified monocytes after 12-week cryopreservation around grade IIIB burn wound accelerated healing of the skin defect and significantly improved the histological pattern of the damage area at delayed terms.
