Our work describes a novel aspect that in vitro PSP/reg reduces PSC activity (proliferation and migration) and stimulates fibrolysis by increasing MMP/TIMP ratio. The findings suggest that PSP/reg might have a protective function in the repair phase of acute and chronic pancreatitis by promoting resolution of fibrosis. We highlight PSP/reg as an antifibrogenic protein in pancreatic injury.
