Type I to type III collagen gene expression in primary fibroblasts. Type I/III collagen mRNA (ratio) was quantified by RT-PCR analysis. White bars: CFs (fibroblasts derived from patients without incisional hernia); black bars: IHFs (fibroblasts from patients with recurrent incisional hernias). Data are presented as means +/- standard deviation; * p < 0.05.
