Synopsis

Wound Healing Methods and Protocols by Luisa A. DiPietro

During the past decade, significant progress in molecular and cellular te- niques has greatly advanced our understanding of the wound healing p- cess. Many of these new techniques have been utilized in the context of more classic models of wound healing. The combination of new and classic approaches has allowed scientists to make exciting discoveries in the field of tissue repair, resulting in an explosion of information about the healing p- cess. Importantly, these new findings have great relevance beyond wound healing itself. The injury repair process cuts across many disciplines, exte- ing to such broad fields as cancer, inflammation, and atherosclerosis. The relevance of the field to these many disciplines has generated great interest in models and methods for the study of wound healing. The goal of Wound Healing: Methods and Protocols is to provide scientists from many dis- plines with a compendium of classic and contemporary protocols from r- ognized experts in the field of wound healing. We hope this volume will be useful not only to those working within the field itself, but also to scientists from other disciplines who wish to adapt wound healing models to their own experimental needs. The process of wound healing encompasses many different biologic p- cesses, including epithelial growth and differentiation, fibrous tissue prod- tion and function, angiogenesis, and inflammation.

Reviews

From the reviews:

Clinical and basic science researchers with an interest in wound healing of various kinds are an appropriate audience for this work. Editors and authors represent some of the leading wound healing laboratories in the United States with a smaller number of presentations from overseas. . .Chapters are written in a straightforward manner. . .This book is a collection of techniques and insights which belongs on the shelf of laboratories or research organizations having an interest in wounds. -Doody's Health Sciences Book Review Journal This informative volume provides a highly practical collection of widely used model systems and methods for studying the injury repair process and is therefore highly recommended as a valuable reference source for all individuals with interests in wound healing. - Carbohydrate Polymers The editors have done an impressive job of editing the book into both a practical and readable style. It is highly recommended for any group that wishes to participate in this exciting and expanding field of research. -British Journal of Surgery

This book ... provides a range of classical and more recent tools in wound research. ... an impressive collection of both animal and in vitro-based techniques useful for experimental studies of tissue damage and repair. ... Each chapter has a concluding notes section offering valuable suggestions and warnings based on practical experience. The book is highly recommended for all basic and clinical researchers involved in tissue repair biology and particularly those with an interest in experimental wound modelling and analysis.
