This particular discovery was in the news a few months ago, but here's a new article on it: 

http://www.biooptics...ate-tissue.html

 

It's called LLLT low-level light therapy (also referred to as photobiomodulation - PBM). They were able to get dentin in teeth to regrow, and they are talking about it possibly working on the skin.

 

Here's the pertinent quotation: 

"The research promises a broad range of clinical applications in restorative dentistry and regenerative medicine, including wound healing and bone growth. And it hints at dramatic changes for dentistry and other disciplines."

 

Just thought I'd share some promising news since there's no word about Dextran Hydrogel.

This post is endless, isn't it?

 

... Either then or when we all get sick of waiting. 

 

Well, we have received bread crumbs of news, so it's totally feasible that the large animal trials really will wrap up in a few months. This will be a big day for Dextran Hydrogel. Don't give up yet. We need a large community working together to expedite getting this into doctors hands.

So the large animal trials should be done by summer. 

 

Back in November they said they'd be done in 3 to 6 weeks. Where did you hear that they'd be done in the summer?



>Lapis that was in 2010 and it was a future sounding statement. It is also a statement by authority, which is a highly unreliable way to judge any information, it is open to human biases. However, since then there have been two or three testable scientific documents that show results. We have the hydrogel which beat the control, and got compete regeneration and is advancing. We have the msc whartons jelly which regenerated appendages which is not advancing yet, as far as I know.

 

Seems unlikely to me that all her work is basically going to be proven to be pointless just because the hydrogel has come along.

 

 

From the Facebook page:

 Hi Bart sorry for the late reply. Gemstone Therapeutics (the investors) have stated the trials are midway and they hope to have results by the summer.

This argument seems utterly pointless. Seabs is right when discussing to the scientific data, which is incomplete in regards to answering the question of whether or not it will work for *humans*. We must wait for that. We don't know the answer yet...

From wikipedia:

Scarless wound healing is a concept based on the healing or repair of the skin (or other tissue/organs) after injury with the aim of healing with subjectively and relatively less scar tissue than normally expected. Scarless healing is sometimes mixed up with the concept of scar free healing, which is wound healing which results in absolutely no scar (free of scarring). However they are both two different concepts.

 

I think this has been discussed already, but it's happening again... I think it's still really confusing that posters are still using the phrase "scarless healing" when that's not really what anyone wants. Scar free healing is what this thread *should* be about, as per dextran hydrogel.

 

I'm afraid that scarless healing, being a *subjective* measurement of "less scar tissue", is highly likely to just be a waste of time to get excited about. I'm sure all of those silicone gel and derivative treatments out there could claim to be scarless healing.

 

Most scar treatments nowadays seem to frequently yield a placebo result than something objective and concrete. The only thing I'm actually excited about anymore is something that truly promises objective results, i.e. scar free healing.

Your only source is the naturalnews website...Yes, I do know the soursop can potentially help people with breast cancer, but most of the other stuff is not proven in reputable scientific journals. Ozone is actually quite dangerous and has killed many people.

 

Pubmed, which has journals from all across the world, doesn't have many journals that agree with your contention. 

 

I ate completely healthy in my teen years and still got acne btw. Went vegan, gluten free, and paleo...and still got bad acne.  

 

Same. My mom used to always feed me wholesome meals with stuff we got out of our garden - and I too broke out really bad in my late teens.

 

I think that eating a healthy diet can be helpful, but it isn't a cure to acne. To think that would be sadly an opinion of ignorance.
