Recent research shows that snail saliva may have antioxidant and regenerative effects on human skin, according to a study by scientists at the Autonomous University of Madrid, it could be used in therapies to regenerate damaged skin tissues.

The secretion could stimulate proliferation, migration, adhesion and survival of human keratinocytes and fibroblasts.

To achieve these results, the researchers conducted tests on "wound closure" through in vitro experiments with human keratinocytes and fibroblasts in culture, a few experiments that serve to demonstrate that treatment with these secretions increases motility and migration of these cells.

"The mechanisms involved in the effects of this secretion go from rearrangement of the cell cytoskeleton to formation of new adhesion structures between cells and the extracellular matrix", Maria del Carmen Iglesias de la Cruz, a professor and researcher at the Department of Physiology at the UAM and first author of the study.
