Hypoxia treatment of normal peritoneal fibroblasts results in alterations that are characteristic for fibroblasts obtained from postoperative peritoneal adhesion tissue. In this study, we have shown that hypoxia treatment enhances normal peritoneal fibroblast elimination by lymphokine-activated killer cells to the level of adhesion tissue fibroblasts, suggesting a pivotal role of hypoxia in the adhesion development.
