In recent years the healing of wounds has come to be studied both on the biological and molecular levels. A large amount of biochemical information has accumulated, some of it representing divergent viewpoints. To help bring them together, a symposium was held, and this book is a collection of 10 papers read at this symposium. The role of the ground substance, proteins, Vitamin C, hormonal influences, collagen, sulfur compounds and various clinical aspects are covered fully. The material and writing are uniformly excellent. The collection comprises a significant contribution to an important subject.
