Prostaglandin E(2) Reverses Scar Tissue Production in Human Kidney Epithelial Cells: Implications for Biomaterial Implantation. comments

by Kim Jones Kimia Sorouri
Myofibroblasts have been implicated in scar tissue formation around biomaterials. When biomaterials are implanted as part of a tissue engineered construct, as a sensor, as a prosthetic or even as a drug delivery device, scar formation fibrosis around the biomaterial often interferes with the intended function...
