Collagen in Dermal Wound Repair

  • John M. McPherson
  • Karl A. Piez


This chapter focuses on collagen, one of the many extracellular matrix macromolecules involved in tissue repair. Some of the known interrelationships between collagen and the other biologically active extracellular matrix macromolecules and the cells that populate and metabolize it are discussed.
