Hypertrophic scarring following thermal injury has become a major problem in Hong Kong. There is evidence that immunological and biochemical changes are associated with thermal injury, including pyridinoline crosslinks which are present in large quantities in hypertrophic scar, but the primary cause of hypertrophic scar formation still remains to be established. It has been reported that free radicals are assosciated with the formation of pyridinoline. In this study, attempts have been made to… CONTINUE READING
