Although the general arrangement of blood vessels in both circulations is from arteries to capillaries to veins, in some parts of the systemic circulation it is modified so that a vein or an arteriole is interposed between two capillary networks; these vessels constitute portal systems.
In summary, we suggest the following potential cellular mechanisms: (1) administration of EMPB attracts MSCs from the bone marrow or perivascular region into systemic circulation; (2) topical application of EMPB further directs the homing of MSCs from systemic circulation to the wound region; (3) mobilized MSCs proliferate and secrete various cytokines having proregenerative activities; and (4) cytokines activate skin cell types and consequently the activated skin cells, the differentiated cells from MSCs may thus remodel wounded tissues.
