Scientists at the University of Cambridge discovered that nocturnal injuries usually disappear half the time. The findings are based on the results of research carried out by specialists who have shown the healing of wounds to depend on the date the person was injured.
Information published by the Science Translational Medicine specialist, which says that after injury, connective tissue cells (or fibroblasts) that migrate to the affected tissues, where they begin to actively produce specific proteins, affect the recovery acceleration, are activated. The ongoing processes are related to the active substance, the tendency of this protein to change the level of content depending on day and night time.
During the experiments, it turned out that, when injured during the day, the healing process is twice as fast as at night. The results can help with the introduction of patients with surgery or other interventions during treatment.
