Significant numbers of macrophages are present during all stages of dermal wound repair, but the functional significance of these macrophages, especially during the later contraction and remodelling stages of repair, remains unclear. We investigated the effect of macrophages on wound contraction using a novel in vitro model based upon the contracting dermal equivalent (DE). Macrophages were found to reversibly restrain DE contraction, a rapid and sustained effect that was enhanced by… 
SIRT3 Regulates Macrophage-Mediated Inflammation in Diabetic Wound Repair.
TLDR
FABP4 expression is epigenetically upregulated in diabetic wound macrophages and, in turn, diminishes SIRT3 expression thereby promoting inflammation, which has significant implications for controlling inflammation and promoting tissue repair in diabetic wounds.
MAPKAPK-2 signaling is critical for cutaneous wound healing.
TLDR
A critical role for MK2 gene expression in macrophages participating in the process of cutaneous wound healing is shown by comparing excisional wounds made on the backs of MK2 knockout (KO) and MK2 wild-type (WT) mice.
Cellular mechanisms of myofibroblast differentiation and dysfunctions in wound healing
TLDR
The mechanisms shown here may have direct implications for modifying the wound healing response, particularly for developing therapeutic strategies to improve healing in the elderly, and the importance of miR-7 was apparent.
Development of an in vitro burn wound model
TLDR
Results show that the burn wound model has many similarities to in vivo wound healing, and may be useful to study different aspects of wound healing and testing pharmaceuticals and cosmetics on, e.g., migration and reepithelialization.
The Role of Inflammation and Blood Cells in Wound Healing
TLDR
A review of the major phases of wound healing and key cell types involved in each phase is presented in this chapter and will allow us to compare successful wound healing with the ineffective wound healing seen even after suture repair of the ACL.
Cellular Therapy for Wounds: Applications of Mesenchymal Stem Cells in Wound Healing
TLDR
This chapter will begin with a description of wound types, phases of healing process, followed by an outline of the role of MSC secretions in each phase, leading to potential novel treatment strategies and the requirements for a successful healing process.
Functions of Extracellular Pyruvate Kinase M2 in Tissue Repair and Regeneration
Pyruvate kinase M2 (PKM2) is a glycolytic enzyme expressed in highly proliferating cells. Studies of PKM2 have been focused on its function of promoting cell proliferation in cancer cells. Our
Bionic, porous, functionalized hybrid scaffolds with vascular endothelial growth factor promote rapid wound healing in Wistar albino rats
Bionic collagen-poly(dialdehyde) locust bean gum based hybrid scaffolds synergistically combined with vascular endothelial growth factor were prepared to regenerate tissue formation for wound healing
A synergistic biocomposite for wound healing and decreasing scar size based on sol–gel alumina
The synthesis of new biocomposites exhibiting a synergistic effect is a promising step in the healing of acute and chronic wounds. In the present study we have combined four materials: chlorhexidine
Healing of Leg Ulcers
TLDR
Ulcer healing involves physiological changes by which the body replaces and restores function to damaged part of the body, and the healing process passes through different stages which are overlapping with each other.

Wound Healing in the PU.1 Null Mouse—Tissue Repair Is Not Dependent on Inflammatory Cells
TLDR
Wound healing studies are reported in the PU.1 null mouse, which is genetically incapable of raising the standard inflammatory response because it lacks macrophages and functioning neutrophils, and it is shown that these "macrophageless" mice are able to repair skin wounds with similar time course to wild-type siblings.
Fibroblasts and monocyte macrophages contract and degrade three-dimensional collagen gels in extended co-culture
TLDR
It is demonstrated that interaction between monocytes and fibroblasts can contract and degrade extracellular matrix in extended culture.
Control of wound contraction. Basic and clinical features.
TLDR
Because the prolonged presence of myofibroblasts, producing an imbalance in extracellular matrix proteins and proteases, probably exacerbates hypertrophic scars and wound contraction, accelerating the rate of apoptotic cell death to reduce the cell number to that seen in normal scar may be a useful strategy for providing effective and efficient treatment of scar contracture.
Fibroblast growth in vitro suppressed by LPS-activated macrophages. Reversal of suppression by hydrocortisone.
TLDR
The efficacy of late hydrocortisone treatment suggests that its effect was through prevention of the expression of the LPS activation of the macrophages, which may provide a possible clue to a pharmacological modulation of the healing processes that occur in the periapical lesion once its infective source had been eliminated.
Macrophage Involvement in Wound Repair, Remodeling, and Fibrosis
TLDR
Understanding what distinguishes these two outcomes may allow treatment strategies to be developed to ameliorate tissue fibrosis in susceptible or “at-risk” individuals.
Alginates from wound dressings activate human macrophages to secrete tumour necrosis factor-alpha.
TLDR
Data indicate that some alginate containing dressings have the potential to activate macrophages within the chronic wound bed and generate a pro-inflammatory signal which may initiate a resolving inflammation characteristic of healing wounds.
Hyaluronic acid induces tumour necrosis factor-α production by human macrophages in vitro
TLDR
It is suggested that the high levels of HA within foetal wounds may play a part in limiting fibroplasia, and thereby limit scarring, via an upregulation of TNF-alpha production from wound macrophages.

Blood monocytes attenuate lung fibroblast contraction of three-dimensional collagen gels in coculture.
TLDR
The ability of monocytes to block the fibroblast contraction of matrix may be an important mechanism in regulating tissue remodeling.
A matrix metalloproteinase inhibitor which prevents fibroblast‐mediated collagen lattice contraction
TLDR
Marimastat inhibited fibroblast‐mediated lattice contraction and this inhibition was reversible upon removal of the inhibitor, indicating that MMPs play an important role in fibroblasts‐mediated collagen lattICE contraction, modelling what may happen when granulation tissue contracts in a healing wound.
