Trefoil peptides promote epithelial migration
through a transforming growth factor beta-independent pathway.
Both contain growth factors such as substance P, insulin-like growth factor-1, and nerve growth factor for promoting corneal epithelial migration
Same as the vascular distribution, the direction of epithelial migration
is outward from the manubrium of malleus to annulus .
It is often assumed that mastoid cavities which become clean and dry, do so by the re-establishment of epithelial migration
2008) due to the "barrier effect" against lens epithelial migration
(APPLE et al.
Topical diclofenac inhibits corneal epithelial migration
at high doses but not at clinical doses; moreover, it can induce expression of matrix metalloproteinases in corneal tissue.
1) They are believed to form as the result of poor eustachian tube function with resultant tympanic membrane retraction and a lack of normal epithelial migration
Morphological characterization of limbal and oral epithelial cells: Epithelial migration
from both limbal and oral mucosal biopsies was noted at the end of 48 h (Fig.
Silver sulfadiazine inhibits epithelial migration
and can delay healing.
These new findings confirm and extend the research reported in several recent publications and scientific presentations where it has been shown that TB4 markedly accelerates wound healing by increasing epithelial migration
and reducing inflammation, both of which are important to more rapid and complete healing.
Several hypotheses have been proposed, including (1) microtrauma to the external canal skin; (2) retention of hard or adulterated cerumen; (3) focal osteitis; (4) hypoxia leading to angiogenesis via hepatocyte growth factor/scatter factor, tyrosine-kinase c-Met receptor, and vascular endothelial growth factor; and (5) decreased epithelial migration
secondary to aging or poor blood supply.
was observed from the limbal biopsies at the end of 48 h on the denuded and chitosan matrices (Fig.
