Fibrogenesis & Tissue Repair has published a supplement of proceedings from the Fibroproliferative disorders: from biochemical analysis to targeted therapies conference, held in Frauenchiemsee, Germany, 25-30 September 2010.
The conference brought together a number of experts in the field of tissue fibrogenesis, with the aim to provoke discussion into the pathological processes of tissue fibrogenesis as well as the development of ideas and strategies for new targeted therapies. The meeting addressed a whole spectrum of topics related to fibroproliferative disorders; from the basic concepts of fibrogenesis; to fibrosis in a range of organs including the lungs, kidney and liver; to the reversibility of the process and finally, the need for new antifibrotic therapies.
The supplement highlights some key points and advances in the field of fibrogenesis and tissue repair, stressing the need for further research and clarification into the pathological processes related to fibrogenesis, a process which has the ability to contribute to disease in nearly every organ in the body.
