WOUND HEALING, FIBROSIS, AND THE MYOFIBROBLAST: A Historical and Biological Perspective (Original PDF from Publisher)
By Giulio Gabbiani, Matteo Coen, Fabio Zampieri
Wound Healing, and the Myofibroblast: A Historical and Biological Perspective is the fruit of an interdisciplinary and international collaboration involving a historian of medicine (Dr. Zampieri), a physician (Dr. Coen), and a researcher (Prof. Gabbiani, world-renowned for his discovery of the myofibroblast). This book aims to draw a concise yet complete description of the conceptual evolution of wound healing, fibrosis and fibrosis-related pathologies from antiquity to present time, as well as commenting on the role of the myofibroblast and the key cell type essential for tissue repair and fibrosis (from its identification in 1971 throughout its 50-years-old history).
By viewing this complex and century-long history from different perspectives, the book’s authors aim to draw an exhaustive overview, with the hope of inspiring new and fruitful basic and clinical research.
