  • In the wound bed of chronic venous leg ulcers, an imbalance of matrix metalloproteinases (MMPs) and tissue inhibitor of metalloproteinases (TIMPs) may cause excessive proteolysis and impair wound granulation. Soluble mediators in the wound environment may be responsible for this imbalance. The in vitro effect of wound fluid from venous leg ulcers on dermal fibroblast production of MMP‐1, MMP‐3 and TIMP‐1 was compared with the effect of acute wound fluid from two different sources: fluid from… CONTINUE READING
