Background and objective: A murine model of skin injury from vinorelbine extravasation was established to evaluate the treatment efficacy of basic fibroblast growth factor (bFGF) and recombinant human granulocyte-macrophage colony-stimulating factor (rhGM-CSF). Materials and method: Experimental models were divided into bFGF, rhGM-CSF, and control (saline) groups, with 40 mice in each group. Edema and ulceration were measured on Days 1, 3, 5, 7, 10, 14, and 18 after the onset of extravasation; injuries were examined pathomorphologically in three mice/group/time point. Results: Edema reached maximum size on Day 3 in the bFGF and rhGM-CSF groups and Day 5 in the control group. The difference between the two experimental groups was not significant; differences between the control group and the experimental groups were statistically significant at all time points. Edema and ulceration began to improve on Day 10 in the bFGF and rhGM-CSF groups and Day 18 in the control group. Healing duration was 14-18 days in the experimental groups, with a (not significantly) shorter duration in the bFGF group. Healing was completed by Day 27.5 in the control group. Pathomorphological evaluation showed regular reepithelization and newly formed granulation tissue in the bFGF and rhGM-CSF groups on Day 13. In the control group, wounds were partially healed, edema and shallow ulcers existed, and epithelization was fragile and disorganized on Day 18. Conclusions: bFGF and rhGM-CSF are useful for the treatment of skin injury due to vinorelbine extravasation, but bFGF may be slightly more effective in decreasing time and improving quality of healing.
