During the wound healing process, inflammatory cell infiltration promotes the wound healing by producing various cytokines and growth factors. Wound healing is delayed in mice lacking CD19, positive response regulator of B cells. This delayed wound healing was normalized by treatment with basic fibroblast growth factor. This indicates that basic fibroblast growth factor plays an important and critical role in the wound healing process.
