Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Recent experimental and clinical evidence suggests that the fetus responds to injury in a fashion fundamentally different from that of the adult. Acute inflammation is almost always absent, hyaluronic acid is a prominent component of the wound matrix, and collagen is deposited in a scarless manner. Using a variety of animal models and techniques, numerous investigators have begun to analyze the constituents of the fetal wound healing process in an attempt to understand the control mechanisms that endow the fetus with unique healing abilities. Since scarring and fibrosis dominate some diseases in almost every medical specialty, the ultimate clinical aim is to delineate the biological principles of fetal wound healing and then apply them to modulate adult wound healing problems.
