The term tissue-specific regulation of normal and reparative growth is taken to mean the type of regulation in which a stable state of the tissue system as a whole is maintained by factors which are produced by the cells of the same tissue system in the course of their normal activity. The distinguishing features of tissue regulation in the intact organism are that the pathways whereby control is exercised over the growth of a given organ belong to the humoral milieu. For this reason the tissue growth-regulating factors are naturally regarded as one component of a complex group of substances circulating in the blood stream and controlling the normal and reparative growth of organs.
