Abstract

On 9 May 2018, the authors took part in a closed panel discussion on the impact of cell salvage in acute and chronic wounds. The goal was to deliberate the possible use of plurogel micelle matrix (PMM) as a new treatment strategy for wound healing and the authors openly shared their experiences, thoughts, experimental data and early clinical results. The outcome of the panel discussion has been abridged in this paper. The cell membrane consists of a lipid bilayer, which provides a diffusion barrier separating the inside of a cell from its environment. Cell membrane injury can result in acute cellular necrosis when defects are too large and cannot be resealed. There is a potential hazard to the body when these dying cells release endogenous alarm signals referred to as 'damage (or danger) associated molecular patterns' (DAMPs), which trigger the innate immune system and modulate inflammation. Cell salvage by membrane resealing is a promising target to ensure the survival of the individual cell and prevention of further tissue degeneration by inflammatory processes. Non-ionic surfactants such as poloxamers, poloxamines and PMM have the potential to resuscitate cells by inserting themselves into damaged membranes and stabilising the unstable portions of the lipid bilayers. The amphiphilic properties of these molecules are amenable to insertion into cell wall defects and so can play a crucial, reparative role. This new approach to cell rescue or salvage has gained increasing interest as several clinical conditions have been linked to cell membrane injury via oxidative stress-mediated lipid peroxidation or thermal disruption. The repair of the cell membrane is an important step in salvaging cells from necrosis to prevent further tissue degeneration by inflammatory processes. This is applicable to acute burns and chronic wounds such as diabetic foot ulcers (DFUs), chronic venous leg ulcers (VLUs), and pressure ulcers (PUs). Experimental data shows that PMM is biocompatible and able to insert itself into damaged membranes, salvaging their barrier function and aiding cell survival. Moreover, the six case studies presented in this paper reveal the potential of this treatment strategy.
