A gene therapy in the form of a thick gel is about to revolutionize wound treatment. The gel is called Nexagon, and when you apply it to a wound, it reprograms the cells to heal more quickly and efficiently.

Unlike an antibiotic cream, which promotes healing by preventing infection, Nexagon is actually speeding up your body's healing process. Or, in the case of ulcers, it's jumpstarting a healing process that's failed to start. Doctors have been testing Nexagon on people with chronic ulcers on their legs, which are wounds that essentially never heal or take at least six months to do so. After just four weeks, some patients reported they were completely healed up.

interesting find but just how rapid are we talking here. could reprogramming cells to work fast cause problems in the future?

Well, no doubt, it'll end up causing cancer and/or infertility or whatever. But still, the promise it offers is alluring, particularly if it can decrease the overuse of antibiotics for wound care that doesn't need antibiotics.

This could be a very good thing, considering what the side affects are, if any at all. Just think about the implications, amputees can have smaller, less visible scars and Paris Hilton or Lindsey Lohan can heal in record time from their inevitable plastic surgery they will need, considering that their only talent is their physical looks.

I personally have a soft-spot for children and just the other day, I was reading about children who grow up with scars, particularly scars that could have been preventable with modern medical procedures or a clean place to heal. We generally take our looks for granted but growing up with massive scars has to be difficult, especially in the third-world.

Is it another medicine made by Monsanto?

I really enjoy a good healing,

Nothing make you heal,

Medicine just tells the body how to do something it's already capable of doing.

I couldn't have said it any better myself, Spoon. The article acknowledges that the gel is still a little ways off, but with such a relatively fast healing time compared to what would previously take, this is some serious progress. What really tickled me was that the gel was also effective in healing damage to the eye, in the case of the worker who got liquid cement in his eyes. I'm sure that with continued research into this, we may hold a future where people born blind will be able to be able to see for the first time and certain ailments will be a thing of the past.

Another thought, think of all the people who suffer from Diabetes around the world. One of the scariest things that can happen to a Diabetic is neuropathy, which results in nerve damage. Many times these sufferers end up getting cuts and sores on their feet and do not realize it before issues like gangrene set in. This could potentially save limbs in their cases.

This could be a wonder drug - I was thinking of my father who had wounds from WWII, they just wouldn't heal and he lost both legs. It will be great when it gets on the market. Thank you Op for the thread and links. S & F
