(11) Like similar acting anti-fibrotic agents, pirfenidone can reduce the level of stromal myofibroblasts, while promoting re-epithelialisation, presumably by antagonising the TGF[beta]-induced cytostatic actions.
MSCs derived from dental pulp, gingival fibroblasts and bone chips resulted in re-epithelialisation of 68, 80 and 91 percent, respectively, after three days.
[7,16] Study shows that topical zinc is better than oral supplement as 1% zinc oxide cream increases mitotic and re-epithelialisation rate.
There were 26(52%) patients of corneal ulcers, of whom re-epithelialisation occurred in 21(80.7%) patients.
This study investigated whether KC patients who used the CXL and two different CLs (Balafilcon A and Hioxifilcon A) showed any differences in complaints following the CXL and the time of corneal re-epithelialisation.
Patients were usually discharged when they became asymptomatic and after re-epithelialisation of the lesion had been observed on subsequent endoscopy.

Proliferation of sweat duct epithelium in scar areas and in re-epithelialisation of healing wounds is reported to be a common response.
[6] Delayed cooling of porcine burns for 1 or 3 hours also showed improved wound re-epithelialisation and decreased the amount of scar tissue that developed.
Tropical application of allogenic MSCs resulted in more rapid re-epithelialisation and increased collagen deposition and angiogenesis in a canine wound healing model [6].
(1) Evidence points to this as a metaplastic condition in reaction to ulceration and re-epithelialisation, the columnar epithelium replacing the normal stratified squamous epithelium.
