Growth factor mobilization in vascular wound healing


Journal Article

Intravascular hydrogel barriers were used to separate the injured arterial wall from blood contact, thus preventing interaction with thrombus-derived factors and plasma proteins. The complex cascade of growth factors and cytokines involved in the vascular wound healing process were successfully elucidated.
