I found this on her CV:

 

Edelman BR, Gordon AD, Radu A, Lim F, and Crombleholme TM. Elevated Baseline Expression of Transforming Growth Factor Beta-3 Relative to Transforming Growth Factor Beta-1 Correlates With a Period of Scarless Wound Repair in Gestational Mice. Journal of Surgical Research 100 (1): 275, 2001.

 

Wasn't Renovo/Juvista also fiddling around with these growth factors?

Nobody chooses their genetics. The "success" good-looking men have, and the lack thereof that the rest of us have, are merely the result of genetic accident at birth. No man has ever earned sex by anything they've done in life, despite any assertions they may make to the contrary. Because their genes are the only thing that matter to a woman, a good-looking man's existence is just as hollow and pointless as everyone else's is.

 

 

That's so disrespectful towards women!

 

Wrong. 

 

The only thing I disrespect is my shit genetics. 

 

Women have been the choosers since the beginning of time. If women weren't picky the gene pool would be lower quality. 

 

That's a very unoriginal thing to say and you obviously don't even mean it!



Post a picture of yourself man. That way we can see if you genuinely are unattractive of if you just need to get over this negativity.

#3425590 Do People With Acne Commit Suicide Very Often?

Posted by Lapis lazuli on 11 April 2014 - 05:28 AM

Well said.

 

A lot of idiotic posts have been made in this thread and it's infuriating and depressing.

 



Wow, I just started reading through the replies on this thread. A lot of insensitivity. There's always more to the story than what appears when someone takes their life. No one just decides to kill themselves for no reason. The things some people commit suicide over might seem stupid to you, but there must be some deeper issues.

Have some compassion guys.

So you're saying you know better than the research scientists? They think they achieved scarless healing but you know better? lol.gif

 

I have been looking at the photos of the mice and the trials. You see here is the thing, some scar tissue does grow hair. I have areas of scars which have hair growth. Actualy lots of hair growth. NORMAL hair growth. After a number of treatments. Thing is my skin still looks uneven and with skin that is texturally and tone wise not as aesthetic as it was.

 

Here is where the human aspect comes into play. You can look at the mice and say yes there is hair growth and the scar doesn't look as noticeable. BUT i do see the hydrogel photo and the skin isnt perfect. It just has the important structures in place. I can see see the marks of the scar.

To be frustrated is one thing, to start using this thread the way Maldition is, is something else. Nobody needs the kind of posting Maldition is doing and also seeing that fact that the admins of this site have been very clear to him in the past about the fact that they don't appreciate this kind of behavior and he's just going on regardless shows that he doesn't respect the admins enough and quite frankly also not the people who come to this thread to share and/or find information regarding this topic in which we are all genuinely interested.

 

Maldition, stop what you're doing, is my advice to you. People have been lenient in the past with you. Be grateful that you aren't yet banned and start following the thread in a dignified manner.

 

I'm sorry to see that you apparently suffer due to scarring but that doesn't mean that you can just post in this thread any way you like. I'm sure you understand that. And if you don't then I think the admins will explain it to you in the case you continue to post the way you have been.

 

Shape up man.

 

Why can't Maldition just be blocked? He doesn't contribute to anything positive here.

 




#3390970 How Many Of You Here Have Developed Social Anxiety Bcs Of Acne

Posted by Lapis lazuli on 27 October 2013 - 07:09 PM

I definitely understand your comment about waiting for a boyfriend to come along and pull you out of your shy world. I used to feel like that a lot as well, before I gave up hope of it ever happening. In the end I think you have to just work on yourself because that's the only way to actually solve the problem for good and not be reliant on another person for your mental wellbeing. Personally I take the view that I have a lot of things I need to fix in myself before I can expect someone else to love me (although this may just be denial on my part and a way to reason why nobody has ever taken that kind of interest in me before).

 

 

Lots of guys probably have taken an interest except they may have been shy as well. I personally have a crush on about ten women (seriously) right know but about...seven of them don't know this. :P There's a lot going on in people that you never find out about...

Thanks Golfpanther! It's appreciated.

 

Alright, so they've definitely started testing on pigs. Check this out:

 

https://aiche.confex...aper337043.html

 

And we now have a date that will reveal more information (one would think anyway) about how things are going; November 6th.

 

It's only going to be an 18 minute presentation (per the itinerary for the conference) so it might not be thorough but I'm sure we'll learn something about how it's progressing.

it's hydrogel dextran really revolutionary? nobody tolk no more about this, nothing comment non about pigs tests.

 

Actually, several very recent posts have discussed it. They're conducting the test with larger animals right now. When I talked to Dr. Sun he said he didn't expect them to publish those results, but he doesn't work at JHU so he could be wrong.

 

Hi golfpanther.

 

Why do you think it is that they won't publish the results of the tests on larger animals in the case Sun is right? Just wondering.

 

I'm not really sure. I went back and looked at the e-mail he sent me and this is what he said, verbatim:

 

I am not sure if there will be papers out from jhu on this project. You may try to talk to dr Harmon , dr Gerecht or even John fini.

 

So really, he's just speculating and not sure because he's no longer there. I've reached out to Harmon, Gerecht and Fini but haven't heard back from any of them as of yet. chuckstonchew was talking to Dr. Harmon a while ago though and the Facebook moderator has talked to Fini.

 

BTW, Sun is an extremely nice and responsive guy. I wish more people involved in this field were as forthcoming as him. He did say that he's continuing his work into scar free healing at Columbia University—where he now works.

 

It seems kind of strange to me if they didn't publish the results. Publishing them only seems to be in everyone's interest? But hey I'm just a layman.

 

I should check out Columbia university's website to see what they're working on.

I'm a pretty happy person but I'd definately be happier without what scarring I have. I'm not all messed up mentally because of it anymore though. But if I had a button I could press that would reverse the physical "damage done" I'd press it in an instant.

 

I'm sorry to hear that you still struggle emotionally to the extent that you do.

 

Anyone else excited that there's actually progress related to this hydrogel and regenerative medicine?

 

The day when this hydrogel, or whatever treatment years down the line heals my face into something that is smooth, is the day I'll be able to open myself back up to the world and start healing the deep emotional damage I have accumulated by living with this disfigurement.

 

Best wishes to all other sufferers out there. If it isn't this hydrogel that will save us, it will be some other treatment in the future. Regenerative medicine is coming!

 

I'll be proud to know the hell I lived through when I can look myself in the face and see a new person.

Getting over them is a good treatment. What also works wonders is not caring about them. I could go on but you get the idea.

 

For me laser treatments did help. But it isn't a miracle treatment and it only has a positive effect in certain ways.

 

And yes, ACell claims certain things it maybe shouldn't. rolleyes.gifsmile.png

 

 

 

Someone tried it and the results weren't what you'd hope they'd be.

 

Acell can only do so much for so many people, it seems.

 

 

Hey guys, 

 

can anyone give me an update on Acell? Has anyone tried it here yet?

 

I´ve found out it is available online already.. I just don´t know if it´s worth the money...

 

I´ve been trying to find updates in the forum but I´ve lost track around page 120:)

 

Thanks! 

 

.

 

Thank you, Lapis lazuli

 

you have just saved me a lot of money smile.png But I actually expected that, it looked a little too sensational...

 

So what is the method of treating scars you recommend the most at the moment? Is there anything that works for you?

 

Thanks!

He says the work has implications not just for entire limb regrowth, but for "smaller, less ambitious" goals such as scar-less healing.

 

Finding a way to prevent scarring isn't exactly moderately ambitious plus aren't the two connected? If you can't stop scarring you won't be able to regenerate limbs.

 

Anyway, it's a nice article. Thanks for sharing, trendycat. The axolotyl looked very funny too, by the way.

 

Recent developments in limb regeneration and scar-less healing:

Here's hoping for a cure within 20 years.

Imagine there's no countries
It isn't hard to do
Nothing to kill or die for
And no acne too
Imagine all the people living life in peace

#3343675 How ya feelin' about your acne today?

Posted by Lapis lazuli on 27 April 2013 - 09:38 AM

Hey since when is this thread about acne? I thought it was about dating and crushes? lol I'm just kidding again. ;)

 

So I've found if I wash my face once a week, drying it out completely, then spending two days with a red, oily face, and then going back to just rinsing in the shower or not showering at all for the rest of the week, it works well. Those two days suck, but if I don't dry it out once a week I start breaking out.
