Role of Macrophages During early Achilles Tendon Healing

SUMMARY Background. Macrophages are a heterogeneous cell population that plays an important role in the initiation of the inflammatory response to trauma as well as its resolution during healing. However, their role during Achilles tendon healing is unclear. The aim of this study was to investigate if macrophage reduction by using clodronate liposome injection would influence the mechanical properties … Continued
