10. Wound healing activity
Laminine is highly recommended for post recovery, immediately following any degree of surgical operation. Fibroblast growth factors or FGFs (family of), has been proven to encourage rapid wound healing. Some of these FGF are involved in angiogenesis (the development of new blood vessels) or wound healing. FGFs are key players in the processes of proliferation (repair and restoration) and differentiation of the wide variety of cells and tissues.
Organ Tissue Regeneration
Research  shown that new cell cultures show a dramatic increase in peptide and amino acid uptake in the presence of FGF. In a 1997 study, immediately following surgery, (animal) subjects were randomized to receive either an amino acid diet or a peptide diet (short chains of amino acid or proteins) for 10 days and the strength of the wound was measured. Wound bursting pressure was found to be significantly higher in subjects receiving the peptide diets than in those just receiving amino acid diets.
The authors suggest that dietary peptides (such as Laminine) may stimulate the production of growth factors (hormone or insulin growth factor IGF-1), increased wound healing, increased blood flow to the wound, and generation of cytokine that support wound healing. A study is warranted to observe this effect in a larger population.
Other possible mechanisms suggested by the authors for the increased wound healing with peptide versus nonpeptide diets include stimulation of collagen synthesis, increased blood flow to the wound.
Laminine is highly recommended for post-surgical recovery (after an operation), where rapid healing of organs or tissue is aided by supplying the patient with the amino acids and FGF2 to signal stem cells in the body.
