Wound-healing characteristics and HTS development in ADRCs- and control-LR treated wounds. This study consisted of six female red Duroc (RD) pigs each with two pairs of excisional wounds (2 mm depth). Each animal served as its own control. a Representative digital images of LR and ADRC-treated wound showing healing progression and HTS development up to 6 months post-injury. b Quantification of melanin content with the mexameter. 10–15 measurements were recorded within the scar area and surrounding normal skin. Normalization of skin pigmentation in control LR and ADRCs-treated wounds at 6 months post-injury was calculated. Results are presented as mean ± SEM. n = 6 animals; n = 11 wound pairs. * p < 0.05 versus LR control vehicle. ADRCs adipose-derived regenerative cells Ctrl control, LR lactated Ringer’s solution
