Fibroblasts-Warriors At The Intersection Of Wound Healing And Disrepair, Jesse Roman 2023 Thomas Jefferson University

Fibroblasts-Warriors At The Intersection Of Wound Healing And Disrepair, Jesse Roman

Division of Pulmonary and Critical Care Medicine Faculty Papers

Wound healing is triggered by inflammation elicited after tissue injury. Mesenchymal cells, specifically fibroblasts, accumulate in the injured tissues, where they engage in tissue repair through the expression and assembly of extracellular matrices that provide a scaffold for cell adhesion, the re-epithelialization of tissues, the production of soluble bioactive mediators that promote cellular recruitment and differentiation, and the regulation of immune responses. If appropriately deployed, these processes promote adaptive repair, resulting in the preservation of the tissue structure and function. Conversely, the dysregulation of these processes leads to maladaptive repair or disrepair, which causes tissue destruction and a loss of …
