Dale, P. D. and Olsen, L. and Maini, P. K. and Sherratt, J. A. (1995) Travelling waves in wound healing. FORMA, 10 (3). pp. 205-222.
We illustrate the role of travelling waves in wound healing by considering three different cases. Firstly, we review a model for surface wound healing in the cornea and focus on the speed of healing as a function of the application of growth factors. Secondly, we present a model for scar tissue formation in deep wounds and focus on the role of key chemicals in determining the quality of healing. Thirdly, we propose a model for excessive healing disorders and investigate how abnormal healing may be controlled.
