Do plasminogen activators play a role in lichen sclerosus?

Abstract:

The histological changes of lichen sclerosus suggest that significant remodelling of the extracellular matrix is occurring. As the proteases of the plasminogen activator system have been implicated in tissue remodelling, cell migration and tumour invasion, we performed an immunohistochemical study to look for evidence of alteration in the expression of plasminogen/plasmin, urokinase-type plasminogen activator, tissue-type plasminogen activator and alpha2-antiplasmin in biopsies of clinically ...
