Has anyone heard of Interleukin-10? I was reading the abstract from an article from earlier this year that I hadn't seen yet. (Unfortunately the full text requires you to fork over cash).




Quotation: "Efforts to develop IL-10 as an anti-scarring agent have demonstrated promising results."


Here's another one from the same journal in case you're curious:




As I said, the full text requires you to pay, and I'm not advertising for you to pay, but even the abstracts are interesting to read.


I also did a search and found that someone was talking about IL-10 back in 2008:

Article just published today:




"While investigating a rare genetic disorder, researchers at the University of California, San Diego School of Medicine have discovered that a ubiquitous signaling molecule is crucial to cellular reprogramming, a finding with significant implications for  stem cell-based regenerative medicine, wound repair therapies and potential cancer treatments."




"We’ve shown that WNT signaling is required for cellular reprogramming,” said Willert. “Some of the processes that occur during cellular reprogramming resemble those that occur during regenerative processes and wound repair. For example, limb regeneration in organisms like axolotl and zebrafish require cells at the injury site to de-differentiate (change their function)  and then rebuild the damaged tissue. WNT is essential for these amazing regenerative processes."

Actually it is injectable..

Atrophic scar equals missing flesh

Just inject something like dextran hydrogel and be done with it

Why do we need to excise something if its already sunken?

Just my opinion btw


Your opinion doesn't matter in this case because the literature is out there and it simply doesn't work the way you describe.

It isn't injected. It's used as a wound scaffold.

It probably wouldn't be expensive for small isolated areas, but if you need large areas treated it would probably get expensive fast.
