A simple assay capable of evaluating the trophic effect of growth factors or active principles on human skin diploid fibroblasts in primary culture has been developed. The results indicate that at physiological concentrations (20-100 μg/ml) a human placental polydeoxyribonucleotide (PDRN) preparation enhances the growth of human skin diploid fibroblasts of the knee in primary culture. This effect is consistently reproducible in the case of patients over 60 years of age, and may explain previously reported data on the successful clinical applications of human placental preparations, suggesting a selective benefit of PDRN in wound healing when compared to other treatments.
