    • 9 Pages

    growth factors such as Vascular endothelial growth Factor, Insulin like Growth Factor and Epidermal Growth Factor. Macrophages regulate matrix synthesis, cell proliferation and angiogenesis.30 Proliferation Next phase is the proliferation phase spanning from 4-12 days after injury. Tissue continuity is re-established in this phase. The last population of cells invading the wound are Fibroblast and…

    obtained from IPF patients were studied in vitro. Fibrotic cells were isolated from lung biopsies of 4 patients diagnosed with IPF and non-fibrotic cells were isolated from lung biopsies of 4 patients undergoing therapeutic lung resection for carcinoma. IPF is characterized by the proliferation of fibroblasts and the deposition of extracellular matrix. In the studies, nintedanib displayed anti-proliferative effects on fibroblasts and a degradation of extracellular matrix. The drug slows the…

    The fibroblasts proliferate and synthesize and secrete proteins such as types of collagen during the phase of healing Hemostasis and degeneration. The function of these proteins is to reconstruct the extracellular matrix and provide a scaffolding- like framework for the developing endothelial and parenchymal cell. It is a t the point that this proliferation and migrations occurs as epidermal skin cells in the top layer move down the sides of the wound to help fill the gap. Fibroblast move in…

    CDH2 CDH2 gene codes for the protein N-cadherin, also known as Cadherin-2 (CDH2), or neural cadherin (NCAD). Studies on this gene has discovered that it is located on Chromosome 18-NC_000018.10, assembly GRCh38.p2 on humans, and contains 20 exons.(9) N-cadherin is one of the classification of the cadherin superfamily, and is composed of five extracellular cadherin repeats, highly conserved cytoplasmic tail and a transmembrane region. This protein’s purpose is to mediate cell-cell adhesion by…

    When a wound’s edges are close together a clot forms. Clots contain fibrin which is a protein that connects the edges of the wound and stops the bleeding. Once a clot has formed and dried it becomes a scab that seals and protects the wound from germs. Epithelium on the edges of the wound goes through regeneration, a process in which new cells of the same function and structure are formed; as the inflammatory responses proceed, epithelium forms under the scab as well. Eventually the wounds edges…

    About 20% volume of the mammalian central nervous system comprises of an extracellular matrix that includes proteins, proteoglycans, and glycosaminoglycans (Bignami A et.al 1993). Evolving evidence indicates that the organization and composition of this matrix change throughout the course of normal aging, during neurodegenerative diseases and following central nervous system injury and that these modifications influence a diverse range of cellular behaviors. The central nervous system…

    Tissue repair is a process of wound healing. It occurs in our body all the time; we just don’t take notice because it is a process not seen by the human eye. However, many magical things happen throughout our body that we cannot see. The body’s tissue repair process is one of those magical things. It is with our daily regular activities that our cells in the stratum corneum of the epidermis are shedding daily. We constantly replace our cells in this layer and lucky for us, our epithelial tissues…

    • 6 Pages

    Water is essential in keeping the body in balance. There are two significant compartments of the body that exchange fluids and electrolytes to maintain homeostasis, which are intracellular and extracellular. These two spaces continually interchange electrolytes, particles, and water to sustain the same pressure. (PP chap42 pg935) This paper will describe three machinimas that assists in maintaining homeostasis, four main categories of IV therapy, and nursing consideration in relation to infusing…

    When Morpheus first shows Neo the real world he says to him, “Welcome to the desert of the real.” The world as Neo knows it does not exist and is merely a construction by machines. Life inside the Matrix is similar to that of the end of the 20th century yet it is a computer generated dream world built to keep humans under control in order to change them into energy. While connected to the Matrix humans are none the wiser about the fact that what they perceive to be reality is actually just a…
