Okay I just want to summarize what we know so far about scar-free healing.

Excerpt from an article about Gemstone:
"Dr. Harold Brem, chief, Division of Wound Healing & Regenerative Medicine at Winthrop University Hospital and leader of the Winthrop Wound Healing Center and his diverse and dynamic team of clinicians and support staff are now actively engaged in pre-clinical study with us, which will lead to product refinement and enhancements as well as establishing a seamless path to First-In-Human clinical trials at Winthrop."
You can call Winthrop's Clinical Trials Center at: 516-663-9582.
- However, None of the trials are related to scar free healing.
- Winthrop is in Mineola, NY.
Another excerpt from Gemstone:
Our efforts moving into 2017 will focus on:
Finalizing our scale-up manufacturing plan including synthesis cost optimization,
Conversion and irradiation optimization as well as finalizing a packaged, sterilized, GMP-validated product,
Completing FDA enabling studies,
Submitting for 510(k) FDA clearance and
Initiating First-In-Human studies.
"As we continue to work diligently toward regulatory approvals and First-In-Human trials for our innovative advanced wound care solutions…"
Moreover, this article is what confuses me: http://www.prweb.com/releases/2015/07/prweb12856816.htm
"All third-degree burns treated with Gemstone Bio’s advanced hydrogel technology achieved complete wound closure after two weeks, compared to only 14 percent of the control-treated wounds. "
"The technology works by eliciting an earlier and more controlled inflammatory response, which stimulates rapid neovascularization, i.e. blood vessel formation, and supports efficient dermal reconstruction to close the wounds with minimal scarring. The “regenerated” skin demonstrated characteristics of uninjured skin. Wounds treated with the technology produced increased amounts of the dermal proteins collagen and elastin, which help to minimize scarring and strengthen the repaired tissue. These wounds were reinnervated throughout, with nerve fibers extending through the center of the reconstructed skin."
“Our core hydrogel technology, the foundation for our biosynthetic scaffold product, facilitated a superior wound healing response by accelerating skin regeneration,” said Dr. Laura Dickinson, Gemstone Bio’s director of research and development. “Third-degree burns, which normally heal with thick distorted scars with permanent sensory loss, were healed with complete re-epithelialization (wound closure) and nerve ingrowth.”
....... says nothing about healing scar-free. So idk.
Sunogel Biotechnologies Inc
- In Maryland
Contact sunogel at: email@example.com OR firstname.lastname@example.org
Contact Guoming Sun- founder of sunogel: https://www.linkedin.com/in/guoming-sun-b8963110/
I'm pretty Dr. Sun has a direct e-mail, I just couldn't find it.
From Sunogel's Facebook: September 1, 2015: Recently, we were able to regenerate complete skin structure on acute deep wounds, including on scarred tissues.

...........this is all the main info we have thus far. But guys, we need to contact these companies and contact these people if we ever want news on what is going on. If anyone is interested in participating in clinical trials or inquiring about them I suggest we all reach out in one form or another.
