Abstract

Bone marrow derived cells play a major role in the maintenance and repair of many tissues, mostly by the delivering of a variety of inflammatory cells. Recent evidence however suggests that bone marrow may also supply cellular substrate for rebuilding non-hematopoietic tissues following injury. This discussion addresses the potential role of bone marrow to provide cells to the skin for rebuilding of skin structures following injury and for skin maintenance.
