  1. This is a more recent article about AFIRM: http://www.nature.com/stemcells/2008/0811/...s.2008.148.html We should give them time for research. AFIRM was scheduled to last for five years and it's only a year old. It's still the "army's bady".
  2. More about Armed Forces Institute of Regenerative Medicine (AFIRM). [edited link out] [edited link out] [edited link out] "Vandre said the ability to produce new skin should be available in the next few years. 'We will easily be able to do things like replace ears and the tip of the nose,' he said. Seven of the 10 top regenerative scientists in the United States are part of the institute, Vandre said, calling that a great indication of its potential for success. 'It’s
  3. Don't worry about this. I've conversed with Dr. Robert Vandre, the director of Armed Forces Institute of Regenerative Medicine (AFIRM). Here is my question: "We are a group of scar sufferers from Acne.org who want to fund the Armed Forces Institute of Regenerative Medicine (AFIRM). Some of us are in the US, while some others are not. Once the project is completed, will the methods of scarless healing be available to people both inside and outside the US? If so, how can we fund the AFIRM f
  4. To find more information about the Armed Forces Institute of Regenerative Medicine, see this link: http://www.nature.com/stemcells/2008/0811/...s.2008.148.html They are pursuing more than ten projects at the same time on preventing scarring from severe burns. These projects include a scarless healing wound dressing, Intecytex skin equivalent, Organognesis skin equivalent, skin gun, skin printer, scarless wound healing gel, mesenchymal stem cells for healing without inflammation, adipose stem c
  5. Did he regrow scar free tissue on the end of his finger? I don't know if his results are good or bad lol. He isn't able to regrow a finger but he did regrow scar free skin. But the ability to regenerate some muscle is amazing. he regenerated muscle? I thought is it more skin. umm The skin and muscles of fingertips of some can regenerate themselves. However, it is amazing that the ECM can regenerate some muscles in the upper leg of a soldier in Texas.

  7. A fresh interview with Dr. Stephen Badylack: http://www.newsweek.com/id/195978 He talked about the Urinary bladder matrix.
  8. This inkjet printer can not only eliminate scarring, regenerate skin, but also produce high quality skin even better than before. Although it sounds science fiction, I think we are near a cure. http://www.pcworld.com/article/118815/your...rn_victims.html The unique feature of this printer is that it can print skin tissue on the site without the need for grafting.
  9. President Obama has ended embryonic stem cell funding ban on Monday. http://www.newsweek.com/id/188454 "Now, scientists say they can build on the work they've accomplished during the Bush-policy era, take it in different directions and learn from one another in whole new ways." "Absolute excitement, enthusiasm, real hope for the future. " This will surely fasten the pace of stem cells research.
  10. I have been researching for months into MEBO. It seems to be able to lead to excellent scarring for limited second degree wounds according to a researcher in Lebanon. However, its antimicrobial property is poor, and therefore it is not suitable for deep second degree wounds or third degree wounds, as demonstrated by studys in Hong Kong and Singapore.
  11. It's a good idea to set up a foundation. I have some questions to ask. What kinds of acne scarring is this foundation for? Only atrophic scarring or all kinds of acne scarring including hypertrophic scarring and acne keloid scarring. If this is only for atrphic scarring, the funding will be different and some money will go simply to injecting fillers or stem cells into the already-formed scars. If this is for all kinds of acne scarring, the money will go to scarless healing. I think it will
  12. Dear holdontohope and others, I am not at liberty to post the photo here because of the copyright issues. If you are instersted, please PM me your e-mail address.
  13. I've found a study on the stem cell spray gun in collaboration with Dr. Gerlach in Germany. http://www.annalsplasticsurgery.com/pt/re/...#33;8091!-1 We should note a few things: 1)The article was received in Sept, 2006 and the longest time of follow-up was 18 months. This means that the treatment was done way back in 2004-05.(Hartmann et al. 2007) 2)It seems that the only difference with conventional technique is the use of the spray gun which "facilitate an even distribution of CEA over the
  14. Thank you, kirk. The man in the first three photos seemed to be doing traditional dermabrasion and the wound created was only confined to the upper reticular dermis. Acell is developing an injectable form of ECM. According to the article http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/1820176...Pubmed_RVDocSum "the clinical utility of an ECM biologic scaffold for many clinical applications is typically restricted to topical administration or to invasive surgical procedures that can accommodate variations o
  15. We don't know the effects of Acell on humans, but we should have some serious evidence of its effectiveness on animals before we can decide what to do next. Could anybody point to an article about Acell regenerating the skin without scars in animals? Could you help us?
