Abstract: Studies have demonstrated that the prolonged use of corticoids can delay the healing process, affecting re-epithelialization, neovascularization and collagen synthesis. As the fins of teleost fish contain a large amount of collagen, the aim of the present study was to investigate the effect of dexamethasone (anti-inflammatory and glucocorticoid steroid widely used in the treatment of rheumatic diseases) during the regeneration process in the caudal fin of specimens of carp (Cyprinus carpio). For such, two glas… Show more

“…Next, we determined whether prednisolone treatment alters fin regeneration after amputation, as suggested by studies of other synthetic glucocorticoids . We resected the caudal fin of adult fish by 50% and treated the fish with prednisolone and control substance, respectively, for up to 27 days, and imaged the fins repeatedly during this time.…”
