Abstract

Scarring is the major hindrance to the healing of all tissues. Unfortunately, our knowledge about the factors that regulate scarring is quite limited. Even worse is the fact that there have been few gains in the treatment of pathologic scarring. This review sets the stage for the supplement on scar formation that provides the latest knowledge on the pathophysiology and treatment of scar formation.
