Seen it on Movies?

Sci Fi Movies?

Where a machine just heals you wounds really quickly?

Well, well, we are getting closer and closer to that day.

Stem cells are capable of healing so much, this is just amazing, the actual story:



A spray solution of a patient's own stem cells is healing their severe burns. So far, early experiments under a University of Utah pilot project are showing some remarkable results. What was once a serious burn on Kaye Adkins foot is healing nicely now because of a topical spray. With diabetes as a complication, the small but open wound had not healed after weeks of failed treatments.

Funding for this project:



The Center for Stem Cell and Regenerative Medicine (CSCRM) is accepting proposals for
funding of Stem Cell-related Pilot Projects (SCPP) for the period from February 1, 2010 –
January 31, 2011.

SCPP is the company from the OP.

CSCRM is providing the funding.

Who funds CSCRM?



the Center was created in 2003 with a $19.4 million award from the Ohio Third Frontier as a Wright Center of Innovation. An additional $8 million award in 2006 from the State of Ohio's Biomedical Research and Commercialization Program--and, in June 2009, a $5 million award from Ohio's Research Commercialization Program--further validated the Center's ability to achieve its mission to utilize human st

Amazing.

Imagine one day you stab your hand for amusement, then spray your hand bam, it heals.

Magic?

No, knowledge.

Keep up the good work


Thoughts on this?

At least SOME real medicine is being developed, who's funding this research?

This is great news! I am not surprised to see it is our own stem cells that will end up being used to heal us. This will the make mass production of drugs difficult or less successful than designer drugs.

It sux how little their budget is, only couple of millions, if that budget was increased to only 1% of the money spent on the Iraq and Afghanistan, by now we would be able to heal heart disease and cancer.
Serious injuries would probably get fixed within an hour.

America is capable of so much, it is just not reaching its true potential.

Did ANYBODY else think of Sean Connery as Dr. Jones, in "The Last Crusade" when he is shot, and Indie returns with the holy water?

Nice find - star and flag.. Hopefully this will bring us one step closer to curing almost all human ailments. I also found this and thought it worked well with your post. It talks about some other advances in this area.

hmmmm... i notice that dreaded word... commercialization... and the wheels in my head start a crankin'...

it seems to me that this will be something that they will be attempting to sell, and so i wonder, if i have a right to my body, can anyone else claim to own anything derived from it?

if i receive some kind of physical damage, and tissue is taken from me in order to create this "stem-spray", could i be denied possession of it, if, for example, i can't afford to pay the cost of production?

or, could they even try to sell the actual material itself back to me? as in, (hypothetically) they create a liter of this spray, and then try to charge a flat rate on it? say, $100 per liter?

and i'm not quite sure how they could actually justify commercialization of the actual stuff itself.
it would be useless to everyone except a few rare individuals who happen to have similar genetics to myself (pretty much limited to only people in my family, and even then it would not be 100% compatible across the board, as well as those few super-rare individuals outside of family who might match)

don't misunderstand, i'm not saying that the people who do the work of producing the stuff shouldn't be payed for their labor, what i am saying is this: even if they go to the trouble of producing the stuff, if, for whatever reason, i can't afford to pay for the production, i don't think that they could withhold the 'stem-spray' from me. for anyone to be able to claim ownership over any tissue made from my genetic profile, regardless of whether or not it is attached to my body, would seem to be a violation of some kind of human right.

anyone else get where i'm going with this?

and by the by, this is a fellow i've been aware of for a little while
www.robertlanza.com...
(Robert Lanza) is an independent stem cell researcher and with his own company, and has been doing this for years. but like most of his ilk, has been held back by shi**y FDA regulations and lack of coverage.

though he seems to be picking up some steam

FYI the claims he makes about what stem cells can do would make the healing of a few burns look like the dropping of turds.(i say this with all due respect and mean no offense to anyone)

Bill Gates has billions he is spending on reseach. Unfortunately, he is into kiilling people for man made global warming instead of healing them for life.

Just to use my imagination for a second:

In the future I suspect we will have technology sold to us which will create cells using our own ? I'm not a scientist so just using my imagination. If that is correct, then all we have to do is, buy the technology?

Does it make sense, or is my ignorance towards stem cells is showing lol..

This is interesting.

I do wonder however, if this might cause some form of cancer in the longer term given that cancer itself comes from cell reproduction mutations. If your body is attempting to heal itself even from a small cut, if you were to spray this, it could cause an interruption that results in a mutation and cancerous cells. It does depend on a lot of things of course but something about this sounds too good.

I just think that if something sounds too good to be true...

Old news, an Australian doctor has been working on and developing this for years.


Dr Wood has become well-known for her patented invention of spray-on skin for burns victims, a treatment which is being continually developed. Where previous techniques of skin culturing required 21 days to produce enough cells to cover major burns, Dr Wood has reduced the period to five days. Through research, she found that scarring is greatly reduced if replacement skin could be provided within 10 days. As a burns specialist the Holy Grail for Dr Wood is "scarless woundless healing".[



In October 2002, Dr Wood was propelled into the media spotlight when the largest proportion of survivors from the 2002 Bali bombings arrived at Royal Perth Hospital. She led a team working to save 28 patients suffering from between 2 and 92 per cent body burns, deadly infections and delayed shock.
