Treatment of in-hospital cardiac patients is focus of Jefferson University presentations

searchers found that acute wound healing was significantly delayed in the mice lacking Fibulin-2. After 72 hours, they found that the damaged (infarct) area was much larger in the mice lacking Fibulin-2.

The researchers found that the wound healing process was much slower in the mice lacking Fibulin-2 after a heart attack due to delayed scar tissue formation in the damaged area. The study demonstrated that Fibulin-2 facilitates heart wound healing probably with the help of (TGF)-?, a growth factor that promotes wound healing.

The researchers are also currently looking into the role of Fibulin-2 as a factor in the development of chronic heart failure.

Members of the team who conducted this study at Thomas Jefferson University in Philadelphia, Pa., and Alfred I DuPont Hospital for Children in Wilmington, Del., are:

Takeshi Tsuda, M.D.;

Erhe Gao, M.D., Ph.D.;

Francois X. Sicot, Ph.D.;

Hailong Dong, M.D., Ph.D.;

Dessislava Markova, Ph.D.,

Xinliang Ma, M.D., Ph.D. and
