Non-healing wounds have demonstrated aberrant regulation of several growth factors, thus using exogenous growth factors and cytokines in the clinical setting may improve the outcomes of non-healing wounds. Mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) are the source of growth factors that show beneficial effect in promoting impaired wound healing. Certain culture condition should be developed to stimulate growth factor secretion from stem cell. Resveratrol, a small molecule found to increase MSCs therapeutic effectiveness. This study aims to investigate the effect of RV on secretion of wound healing related growth factors. We isolated and characterised MSCs from wharton’s jelly (WJ), amniotic membrane (AM), and adipose tissue. We treated MSCs with serum deprived medium (SDM) supplemented with RV at 0.1 µM, 0.5 µM, 0.8 µM concentration. Our study revealed that RV at 0.1 µM was more effective to increase cell proliferation rate. Resveratrol at 0.1 µM promoted EGF, HGF, PDGF, and TGF-β1 secretion from MSCs. AD-MSCs showed the greatest response to RV stimulation in the term of cell proliferation and growth factors secretion. As conclusion, RV can facilitate cell proliferation and wound healing related growth factors secretion at dosage dependent manner.
