Effect of basic fibroblast growth factor. An in vitro study of tendon healing.


The effect of basic fibroblast growth factor on the proliferative and chemotactic response of cultured rat patellar tendon fibroblasts was studied in an in vitro wound closure model. In quiescent confluent fibroblast culture, a uniform cell free zone, or wound, was generated mechanically as an in vitro wound. The width of the cell free zone was measured at… (More)
