The dynamic changes in skin mast cell (MC) numbers around incised wounds were studied, using experimental designs amenable to multiple analyses of variance. Sixty-four Wistar albino rats were shaved in the interscapular region, wounded or not wounded, and then killed 2 or 10 days later. During this period, the rats were exposed continually to a cold (2 degrees C) or control (20 degrees C) climate and treated daily over the shaved region with either tap water or a weak sulphuric acid (pH 3.5… CONTINUE READING
