Enzyme Inhibitor Helps Tissue Heal In Mice
A newly identified small molecule increases the rate of tissue regeneration in the colon, liver, and bone marrow of mice. With further testing and development, such a compound could lead to therapies that would help patients heal tissues damaged by disease or excised through surgery.
In previous studies on animals or patients, scientists have tried to accelerate tissue and blood cell growth by administering analogs of prostaglandin E2 (PGE2), a lipid that promotes regeneration by . . .
