Skin replacement

The knowledge of stem cells has made it possible for scientists to grow skin from a patient’s plucked hair. Skin (kerayinocyte) stem cells reside in the hair  follicle and can be removed when a hair is plucked. These cells can be cultured to form an epidermal equivalent of the patients own skin and provides tissue for an autologous graft, bypassing the problem of rejection.
