Publication date: October 2018Source: Biomedicine &Pharmacotherapy, Volume 106Author(s): Jawun Choi, Yang-Gyu Park, Min-Sang Yun, Jae-Won SeolAbstractAlchemilla vulgaris and Mimosa tenuiflora (Mimosa) have been used to treat cutaneous wounds as a traditional remedy due to their various biological activities. But, there are only a few studies about the effects of these herbs on wound healing. The purpose of this study is to investigate the wound healing effect of the herbal mixture, consisting of A. vulgaris and Mimosa, in mice and to determine the activity of the extract in vitro. In present study, application of an ointment containing the herbal mixture on the dorsal skin wounds of mice showed that the wound healing process was faster than treatment of Fusidic acid. Histological analysis demonstrated the herbal mixture promoted re-epithelialization, collagen synthesis, and especially the regeneration of skin appendages such as hair follicles. Immunohistochemical analysis revealed the herbal mixture improved angiogenesis and the stabilization of blood vessels, as well as accelerated the formation of granulation tissue. In addition, we demonstrated that herbal mixture enhanced the migration of HaCaT, fibroblasts, and HUVECs on a two-dimensional wound, and promoted the proliferation of macrophages and lymphatic vessels. Our results demonstrated that herbal mixture can promote the migration of keratinocytes, fibroblasts, and endothelial cells, and the proliferation of macrop...

CONCLUSION: Lipoid proteinosis is a rare genetic condition, which typically presents in infancy with dysphonia and subsequent skin involvement. Two cases are presented to demonstrate that laryngotracheal symptoms can be controlled with interval laser debulking and the 'pepper pot' technique without causing stenosis.
