Most of the research has been studied on keratinocyte and fibroblast and other cell types are being investigated for future generations of bioengineered skin substitute
. Multiple cell types other than skin cells are involved in the extensive process of wound healing.
in their study concluded that a bioengineered skin substitute
significantly improves the management and healing rate of partial thickness facial burns, compared to the standard open topical ointment technique.
Based on the product, the market is categorized into xenografts, allografts, bioengineered skin substitutes
, collagen-based dressings, and topical dressings.
Moreover, bioengineered skin substitutes
such as Dermagraft and Apligraf can aid in the healing of venous ulcers.

For wound dressing the fact that cells do not migrate transversally in BC may be beneficial, for example, in creating monolayers of bioengineered skin substitutes
. According to the results above, BC wound dressings can be classified as bioactive; BC is able to control moisture while interacting with skin cells.
