Hyaluronic Acid-Crosslinked Filler Stimulates Collagen Type 1 and Elastic Fiber Synthesis in Skin through the TGF-β/Smad Signaling Pathway in a Nude Mouse Model
Compared to pure hyaluronic acid filler, crosslinked hyaluronic acid (HAc) exhibits superior biocompatibility and longevity as a dermal filler. We previously developed composite HAc-hydroxyapatite (HAp) fillers. Herein, we systematically compared the protein-level increase and gene expression between HAc-microHAp and HAc-nanoHAp in mice, and determined the mechanisms underlying the biological responses to HAc and HAp.Five-week-old female BALB/c-nude mice were classified into five groups: normal skin,...

Foremost, we feel it is necessary to reiterate our conclusion3 that "It is uncertain whether absorbable sutures confer better, worse or equivalent outcomes compared to non-absorbable sutures following carpal tunnel decompression, because the quality...
