Skin tissue engineering has made significant progress over recent years, but there are still many factors that hamper its further development; these include the critical choice of seed cells. Many researchers eager to develop new cell-based skin products have focused on the use of stem cells, which have demonstrated many prospects for being put into clinical application. In this paper, we review the recent studies investigating the use of different tissue-derived stem cell as seed cells for skin tissue engineering.
