Human amniotic membrane forms the innermost layer of placenta tissue. The avascular membrane acts as a protective barrier for the developing fetus. Its properties provide a wide variety of potential benefits in medicine.
PROTECTIVE COVERING: The membrane sheet provides a protective covering that may aid in wound management
IMMUNOGENICITY: The amniotic membrane has unique non-immunological properties
SCAFFOLD: The extracellular matrix acts as a scaffolding and potentiates the migration and adhesion of resident cells
GROWTH FACTORS: Natural cytokines in the membrane aid in its restorative and protective traits
