Peake, Matthew A.; Caley, Mathew; Giles, Peter J.; Wall, Ivan B.; Enoch, Stuart; Davies, Lindsay Catrina; Kipling, David Glyn; Thomas, David William; Stephens, Philip;

There is a spectrum/continuum of adult human wound healing outcomes ranging from the enhanced (nearly scarless) healing observed in oral mucosa to scarring within skin and the nonhealing of chronic skin wounds. Central to these outcomes is the role of the fibroblast. Gl... View more
