A simple model of collagen remodeling

AbstractIn the present paper we propose and study a simple model of collagen remodeling occurring in latter stage of tendon healing process. The model is an integro-differential equation describing the possibility of an alignment of collagen fibers in a finite time. We show that the solutions may either exist globally in time or blow-up in a finite time depending on initial data. The latter behavior can be related to the healing of injury without the scar formation in a finite time: a full alignment of collagen fibers. We believe that the present model is an essential ingredient of the full description of collagen remodeling.
