The hypothesis behind it was that the blood would clot, which will in turn provide a provisional matrix of fibrin, fibronectin, von Willebrand factor, and thrombospondin (19,20,21), which facilitates the early migration of cells into the wound environment, (22) stimulates fibroblast proliferation (via thrombin), and shield mitogenic and chemotactic factors from inhibitors.
