Rejuvenated fibroblasts can recover the ability to contract

Fibroblasts are the most common connective tissue cells. They produce the structural framework for animal tissues, synthesise the extracellular matrix and collagen, and play a critical role in wound healing. However, during ...

Regenerative medicine

Regenerative medicine refers a group of biomedial approches to healing that involve stem cells. One is the injection of stem cells or progenitor cells (stem cell treatments); another the induction of regeneration by introduced substances; and a third is transplantion of in vitro grown organs and tissues.
