Satura® Rosta preparation restores hair growth and promotes adipogenic differentiation of mesenchymal stem cells
The preparation “Satura® Rosta” (Satura®) has for many years been known as an effective medication for baldness treatment. Nevertheless the mechanisms of its actions are unknown. To investigate it, we performed the histological examination of scalps of two volunteers having completed a full Satura® treatment. This study revealed substantial restoration of hair growth, augmentation of subcutis and an overall skin structure normalization. As far as subcutis, it is the normal environment for anagen hair follicles and adipogenic differentiation can be the prerequisite of hair growth. On the other hand alopecia and the decreasing of subcutis are the main manifestations of skin aging. Various aspects of the possible mechanisms of Satura® action are discussed.
Possible Role of Autophagy Activation in Stimulation of Regeneration
Human cell aging is irregular. Senescent cells often impair the function of their neighbour nonsenescent cells. Stimulation of tissue regeneration is of potential applied significance for medicine, in particular, for geriatrics. One of the possible ways to induce regeneration consists of a selective removal of senescent and damaged cells from the tissue. Studies of the mechanism of action for Satura® Rosta Balm, which stimulates the hair growth, showed that the balm does not stimulate proliferation of various human cells, nor does it improve the cell resistance to stress. Oppositely, the balm exerted a cytotoxic effect in oxidative stress without increasing the production of reactive oxygen species. Further investigations show that the balm increases the transcriptional activity of the p53 gene, activates autophagy, and induces weak adipogenic differentiation. A hypothesis of autophagic regeneration is discussed, suggesting that selective autophagic death of senescent and damaged cells, which experience oxidative stress, triggers regeneration, which may be stimulated by both a rejuvenating effect of an increase in autophagy and a release of additional metabolites.
