What profibrotic role/function/activity stands for? - (Mar/25/2012 )


I'am sorry if this is not the right place for this question.
I seached google for the meaning of "profibrotic phenotype/effect/role/activity/function) but couldn't find a definition or clear description!
COuld somebody please provide me with a simple definition of this term?
What profibrotic stands for?

Thanks in advance


although "profibrotic" is not in the dictionaries to which i have access, it would seem that it means "promotes fibrosis".


Thanks mdfenko.
I also searched in more than one dictionary plus google but I didn't find a clear statement about what it means!
