Morphological studies of experimental wound healing cells in a murine model.

Integument wounds are primarily healed by fibroblasts. These multifunctional cells synthesize collagen and ground substances (acid mucopolysaccharides) from which they fashion fibers and/or laminae. The fibers are formed in the upper layers of the wound by spindle shaped cells which initially grow along fibrin strands. This area of repair eventually becomes… CONTINUE READING
