Abstract

This article reviews the literature and presents a number of hypotheses dealing with effects of electric currents on regeneration of body tissues. Data were reviewed in terms of potentials and/or potential gradients which were present in the experiments. The presence of an electrophoretic action which may be a valuable tool in preventing shock due to electrolyte imbalance in the treatment of burns was postulated.
