  1. 1. Connective tissue contraction in wound healing : An experimental study in vivo and in vitro

    Author : M. Reza Ghassemifar; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICINE; MEDICIN;

    Abstract : Contraction of connective tissue is an important part of tissue repair that reduces the wound space and helps to decrease the formation of scar tissue, both of which are needed to restore tissue integrity. In the present study, certain cellular mechanisms that are active during connective tissue contraction were assessed and the influence of transforming growth factor-. READ MORE

  2. 2. In vitro wound healing characteristics of amelogenins

    Author : Sofia Almqvist; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; amelogenins; extracellular matrix; cell culture; macrophage; fibroblast; endothelial cell; integrin; cytokine; inflammation; wound healing tissue repair;

    Abstract : Wound healing involves the co-ordinated actions of several cell types, soluble cell mediators and extracellular matrix (ECM). This research project intended to investigate the role of certain ECM proteins in different processes during tissue repair by studying the interaction between dermal cells and ECM. READ MORE

  3. 3. Stimulation of wound healing in connective tissue : An experimental study using the perforated rat mesentery

    Author : Per Malcherek; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICINE; MEDICIN;

    Abstract : Different aspects of wound healing in connective tissue were studied in the perloratedrat- mesentery model after mast cell activation and treatment with epidermal growth factor (EGF). This wound model is considered to reflect pure connective tissue repair. READ MORE

  4. 4. Plasminogen in periodontitis and wound repair

    Author : Rima Sulniute; Tor Ny; Daniel A Lawrence; Umeå universitet; []

    Abstract : The plasminogen activator (PA) system plays a critical role in many physiological and pathological processes, such as fibrinolysis, extracellular matrix (ECM) degradation, wound healing, inflammation, and cancer. The key component of the PA system is plasmin, a broad-spectrum serine protease that is derived from its inactive form, plasminogen. READ MORE

  5. 5. Impaired reparative processes in particular related to hyaluronan in various cutaneous disorders : a structural analysis

    Author : Ulf Bertheim; Bengt Gerdin; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : hyaluronan; scar tissue; diabetes mellitus; basal cell carcinoma; skin; wound healing; Oto-Rhino-Laryngology; oto-rhino-laryngologi;

    Abstract : Cutaneous reparative processes, including wound healing, are highly developed procedures in which a chain of actions occurs to reconstitute the function of the wounded tissue. To prevent a delayed or excessive reparative process it is important to understand how this procedure develops and is maintained. READ MORE
