Injury to the serosa through injurious agents such as radiation, surgery, infection and disease results in the loss of the protective surface mesothelium and often leads to fibrous adhesion formation. Mechanisms that increase the rate of mesothialisation are therefore actively being investigated in order to reduce the formation of adhesions. These include intraperitoneal delivery of cultured mesothelial cells as well as administration of factors that are known to increase mesothelial… CONTINUE READING
