    Comparison of Growth Factor Expression in Fetal and Adult Fibroblasts: A Preliminary Report.

    Arch Otolaryngol Head Neck Surg 125: 676-680, 1999

         


    The factors in healing wounds by fibroblasts were studied in vitro. Fetal has scarless healing against adult scars.

          


    It was found that adult fibroblasts have a relative excess of cytokine production compared to fetal fibroblasts. This excess may contribute to poor wound healing in adults. Such studies in parallel with human genome project may determine not only the molecular basis of scar formation but also genetic predisposition to excessive scarring. Under the influence of human growth factor, fibroblasts appear to be the conveyor of wound healing.
