Evasion of apoptosis by myofibroblasts: a hallmark of fibrotic diseases

Myofibroblasts are important mediators of wound healing but can also perpetuate fibrosis in diseases such as systemic sclerosis by evading apoptosis. Therapeutic targeting of the survival mechanisms used by these cells in fibrotic disease holds promise for the reversal of fibrosis.
