Wound Healing

Wounding leads to a rapid increase in the number of circulating hemocytes and their aggregation in the vicinity of the wound. The nature of the factors that cause mobilization and aggregation are unknown, though it has been proposed that the damaged tissue cells release chemicals (wound hormones) that attract hemocytes. At the site of damage, hemocytes may become involved in various ways. The coagulocytes may initiate clotting; the plasmatocytes and perhaps other types of hemocytes may phagocytose or encapsulate dead cells and foreign organisms that have entered the wound; and hemocytes may arrange themselves in sheets to form a scaffold on which damaged tissue can regenerate.
