1. A brief historical introduction is given. It deals with the general features of wound healing in which epithelial participation is the dominant feature. 2. In Section A the influence of ascorbic acid on healing of skin wounds in rats is discussed. 3. Second wounds were inflicted at the same site as the initial wounds one month after the latter had healed. 4. In Section B the influence of ascorbic acid on healing of skin wounds in guinea pigs is investigated. 5. In order to discover the action ascorbic acid has on ear wounds, the tips of guinea pigs' ears were cut off. 6. The influence of ascorbic acid on the regeneration of corneal epithelium in guinea pigs is discussed. 7. The effect of ascorbic acid on healing of muco-periosteum was studied. 8. The influence of pantothenic acid on healing of skin wounds in rats was studied. 9. Pantothenic acid (Bepanthen-Salbe) ointment was applied directly to skin wounds.
