Details

Regeneration is the elegant process that occurs when there is loss of structure and function but the organisms has the sophisticated capacity to substitute that structure by replacing exactly what was there before injury. Lower forms of life, such as salamanders and crabs, can regenerate their tissues in this manner.

However, higher organisms, also including humans, have lost this capacity and can only replace a limited amount of damaged tissue by a process of wound healing. An exception is represented by the foetal phase, during which the repair of lesions occurs without the formation of scars, due to a process of tissue neo-formation. After birth, the organism fails to completely repair tissues, leading to the formation of scars. This book discusses platelet derivatives and their role in regenerative medicine.
