Contractile and phenotypic properties of human fibroblasts from healing wounds were compared to those of dermal fibroblasts using in vitro models. Wound fibroblasts were recovered from implants, made of a polyvinyl alcohol sponge threaded into a perforated silicone tube, 12 days after their subcutaneous implantation in human volunteers. Dermal fibroblasts were isolated from the skin of healthy subjects. Two morphologically different fibroblast populations were observed in cells cultured from… CONTINUE READING
