Peritoneal tissue repair is a distinct entity. Regardless of the type of injury, a common series of events follows, culminating in inflammation and restoration. Molecular actors interact in a series of events in which the balance of fibrin deposition and degradation is vital. Although the complexity of the repair is illustrated by the multitude of effects and the overlap of molecular mediators involved, a framework is emerging. In this context, the overall role of cytokines is to shift the… CONTINUE READING
