Stem cell therapies for tympanic membrane repair have shown initial experimental success using mesenchymal stem cells in rat models to promote healing; however, the mechanisms providing this benefit are not known. We investigated in vitro the paracrine effects of human adipose-derived stem cells (ADSCs) on wound healing mechanisms for human tympanic membrane-derived keratinocytes (hTM) and immortalized human keratinocytes (HaCaT). ADSC conditioned media (CMADSC) were assessed for paracrine activity on keratinocyte proliferation and migration, with hypoxic conditions for ADSC culture used to generate contrasting effects on cytokine gene expression. Keratinocytes cultured in CMADSC showed a si..
