Therefore, cathodal sensory ES induces greater release of FGF-2 at the wound site via stimulation of the migration of cells that produce FGF-2 toward the wound site.
We evaluated the effect of sensory and motor intensities of cathodal current on the release of fibroblastic growth factor-2 (FGF-2) at the wound site and also the biomechanical and histological properties of healed skin.
