Abstract

Epidermal Growth Factor (EGF) stimulates the proliferation of epithelium both in organ culture and in vivo: the topical application of the factor to the burns of mice resulted in a marked hyperplasia. The epithelium rapidly regressed to its normal thickness: this phenomenon is accomplished by a histologic increase of ATP-ase, leucinoaminopeptidase, succinodehydrogenase in the epidermal cells. In this paper we reported that EGF accelerated the repair of burns in adult mice.
