Abstract

Recently in The Lancet, Guenou et al., 2009 demonstrate that human embryonic stem cells (hESCs) can differentiate into mature keratinocytes able to generate a pluristratified epithelium on immunodeficient mice. Their findings and the potential clinical use of hESC-derived keratinocytes will be discussed.
