I don't know what to think of this. 

 

Well, it's research being performed at JHU, but not by Gerecht's team. Zhaoli Sun is not the same Sun that worked on the original Hydrogel paper (Guoming Sun) in case anyone is wondering.

 

Really, this is just another approach their team is taking toward the same end. And since both products being combined are already on the market, in all likelihood this could be commercialized even quicker than the dextran hydrogel.

 

It's good news since every little bit of research into wound healing is great, but it's not related in any way to the work Gerecht is doing with the hydrogel; at least as far as I can tell (and doesn't provide the same results, even in mice). For example, Gerecht's lab website does not have this publication listed and she works at the Engineering School at JHU whereas Zhaoli Sun works at the School of Medicine.

 

Great find anyhow!

Here is another recent wound healing article:

http://www.einnews.c...celerated-wound

 

This one is interesting because it allegedly treats the following (listed in the link):

  • burn wounds,
  • split-thickness skin graft donor site wounds,
  • aesthetic treatment wounds (caused e.g. by dermabrasia ablative laser, deep chemical peel),
  • radiation wounds,
  • skin lesions caused by toxic epidermal necrolysis and
  • skin lesions caused by genetic diseases such as epidermolysis bullosa.

So it looks like they're maybe aiming for post-laser, post-dermabrasion application which is somewhat exciting.

 

This article is also interesting if you're into general regenerative medicine:

They even managed to create livers and kidneys out of stem cell....is it that hard to just cut scar tissue out, and throw some stem cells to fill the gap? Dammit

Well, thus far I think they've only managed to print small scale livers and kidneys and obviously not ones that are ready to be transplanted into someone. And according to Wake Forest University (the leaders in 3D Bioprinting of organs) their end goal is actually to improve function and replace damaged tissues, not necessarily to do full transplants. Here's an article about it on their site:

 

http://www.wakehealt...ng-A-Kidney.htm

 

And in terms of wound healing, from everything I've read it's one of the most complicated things that takes place in the human body, with so many growth factors and cells working together to form a scar that it's a daunting task to know which things to deactivate or alter in order to get scar free healing. Plus, with stem cells there are safety risks. Luckily, with the hydrogel in the paper they weren't using stem cells (even though that was their initial long term goal and is still something they're exploring).

 

But yes, I wish it would happen faster.

Those links have nothing to do with the hydrogel, the knowledge base on the gel is already known, as has been cited. But still it looks like a good scientific study. Someone probably noted when organs are rejected by the body, the body produces a scarring response to eject the tissue or foreign body. Yet when this drug is provided the body does not reject the organ, hence the body does not scar to block off and eject the organ when this drug is used. They, using this particular knowledge base, built a hypothesis that a wound would also heal faster and better with the drug. This hypothesis was proven...

Not that easy!

Cutaneous wound healing is very complicated.

    I'm looking into Dermaneedling as of right now. I'm not interested in laser though. I've been looking at the Dextran Hydrogel Thread in hopes of it being successful. That's pretty much it.

Hey, just wondering if anyone has gotten progress reports as of today? Just wondering since it's been weeks since the last one.

I still have hopes that the progress will go well rolleyes.gif

and yes, i'm back, back for good. i see the future, when i say argentine-germany in the match, i see the future because my eyes are reals, i no see lies. that's why when i say hydrogel probably it's a scam, well you must be serious and take my opinion like some real.
