Effect on skin wound healing Neutralising TGF-beta 2 alone had no effect; combined with TGF-beta 1, it reduced the monocyte and macrophage profile, neovascularisation, fibronectin, collagen III and collagen I deposition in the early stages of wound healing; markedly improved the architecture of the neodermis to resemble that of normal dermis and reduced scarring; by contrast, wounds treated with either TGF-beta 1 or with TGF-beta 2 had more extracellular matrix deposition in the early stages of wound healing but did not differ from control wounds in the final quality of scarring
