In this volume the impact of cell culture models on
dermatological research is discussed by scientists from
medicine, physiology, biology, pharmacology,and pharmacy.
The book includes the following topics: orthology and
pathology of the skin, differentiation of keratinocytes and
fibroblasts, problems of the cultivation of melanocytes,
biochemistry of pigment metabolism, models for wound healing
and tissue renewal, fibroblast function and metabolism of
collagen, models for the investigation of ageing as well as
models for pharmacological and toxicologial tests.
Thus, a wide arch is spanned, from basic problems with
cultivation and characterization of cell cultures to
examples of application. Dermatologists as well as cell
biologists will benefit from this publication.
