Platelets, but not erythrocytes, significantly affect cytokine release and scaffold contraction in a provisional scaffold model.

Abstract

Platelets and erythrocytes are major components of wound provisional scaffolding. In this study, we hypothesized that the concentration of platelets and erythrocytes would significantly affect fibroblast-mediated contraction of three-dimensional scaffolds or the release of cytokines from the scaffold. To test this hypothesis, human anterior cruciate… (More)
