Scientists at the University of Cambridge found that injuries that occurred during the night were usually treated slowly in half. The findings are based on research results by specialists who showed the dependence of wound healing on the day the person was injured.
Information published by experts in the journal Science Translational Medicine, which states that after the injuries of the connective tissue cell (or fibroblast) cells that are migrating to the affected tissue, where they begin to actively produce specific proteins that affect the recovery speed, are activated. The processes that occur are associated with actin, this protein tends to change the level of its content depending on the time of day and night.
During the experiments it turned out that when the injuries were received during the day, the treatment process was twice as fast as at night. Results can help in setting patients up with surgical intervention or other treatments during treatment.
