Wound healing in nude mice: a study on the regulatory role of lymphocytes in fibroplasia.

Abstract

In order to understand the role of T cells in postinjury fibroplasia, we have studied wound healing in congenitally athymic nude mice that lack a normally developed T cell system. Healing of incisional wounds, as assessed by wound breaking strength, was significantly stronger in nude mice compared with normal thymus-bearing animals. This was accompanied by… (More)
