Blood vessel stem cells and wound healing.
Watt SM., Fox A.
This article continues the Journal's "Scientific Surgery" series of leaders. The aim of the series, published throughout 2005, has been to highlight areas of bioscience that, while still largely confined to the experimental laboratory, may soon be brought into the clinical domain. In this month's paper Watt and Fox offer an up to date insight into the processes of tissue healing and suggest possible future therapeutic strategies.
