Abstract

The development of chronic inflammatory reactions is followed by an involvment of the connective tissue that, under normal conditions, ceases when adequate repair has been achieved. The macrophages are cells capable of regulating the duration and the extent of fibrogenetic and proliferative activity of fibroblast by means of a soluble factor, macrophage-dependent fibroblast stimulating activity (MFSA). In this paper, we analyze the variations of 'in vitro' fibroblast proliferation caused by macrophages stimulated 'in vivo' with alloplastic materials.
