About this book


During the past decade the significant progress made in cell and molecular biotechnology has led to exciting discoveries in the field of tissue repair, producing a wealth of information about the healing process. In Wound Healing: Methods and Protocols, expert researchers and physicians not only describe classic and contemporary laboratory methods for studying tissue repair using a broad range of wound healing models, but also provide sensitive assays for the assessment of tissue healing. The systems detailed include human, animal, in vitro, in vivo, and impaired healing models, as well as models in which underlying systemic and genetic conditions influence the healing process. Useful for the study of many biological processes, including angiogenesis, epidermal differentiation and repair, acute inflammation, ECM synthesis, and remodeling, these powerful models illustrate biochemical, molecular, and surgical techniques designed for the analysis and manipulation of the healing wound, and provide step-by-step instructions to ensure successful results. In many cases, several different approaches to a single process are examined, with sample results and analyses given to help users in selecting the approach most suited to the problem at hand.
Comprehensive and enlightening, Wound Healing: Methods and Protocols offers both basic and clinical scientists a thought-provoking and highly practical collection of widely used model systems and methods for studying the injury repair process.
