Sounds promising.

Is it just me but it’s kind of hard to tell one way or another

Has the scar been revised or did Dr. Jones simply open the old scar, put the Acell materials in the open wound, and then suture it up?

From the above page:

"These photos were just provided by the patient. They were taken yesterday.
At this point it is still difficult to see any growth in the scar, although it looks much better than it did pre op, New grow would not be expected until about 12 weeks post op.

The protocol for this procedure was provided by the company that supplies the Acell product. Hopefully we will see new growth over the next few weeks from the scar area.

Are we sure that by ‘growth’ Jones is talking about hair? Could he be talking about fresh scar-free skin growing over the scar so there will no longer be any mark?

Yeah, it’s unrealistic to expect hair growth in about 10 weeks, not possible. Also, the other thing we need to find out is whether Dr. Jones did a scar revision on him while using the Acell materials in the open wound, if he did a scar revision for him then that pretty much invalidates everything we see in the blog.

no, he’s not talking about hairs… he’s waiting new mushrooms, inside the scar.

The one and only excision was made right at the start of the procedure which was done at the end of October.

ok, I concede that the trialist is taking great efforts into taking a good photo, but the photo is not detailed enough. I think the camera did not focus into the scar, but into the hairs well above it.
Maybe if he could use a styling gel to get all those sorrounding hairs flat against the scalp, the camera would be able to focus into the skin.

I think I see some hairs coming out of the scar, but oviously these are not new, because they are long hairs. So, I can’t tell anything.

The previous photo was better illuminated. If possible, please use the same technique.

The scar keeps healing. Lets hope it will be totally healed with no scar tissue.

Thanks once more to Dr. Jones and his trialist for this open experiment, where we can see exactly what they get. Without manipulations.

I think the old scar tissue was completely removed, and the wound was left open to heal, with acell sheet placed over it, and sutured to keep it in place against the live flesh.


#17

It definetly produced a scar which it wasnt supposed to. If it cant even heal scar free i dont beleive it will regrow hair. Theres still hope because jones let the acell dry out. Hopefully another doctor will keep it moist so we can evaluate.


#18

Probably to most this is nothing new but in this acell treatment the hair regrows on a horse…

http://www.acell.com/bravo.php

“After 30 days, the wound is closed and re-growth of hair is beginning at the periphery of the original wound.”

I wish they had case studies on their website involving humans. Does anyone know of any published case studies involving humans besides Dr. Jones’ experiment? Even if hair regrew within a scar not on the head it would be encouraging.

You are welcome.

How does this scar:

looks better than this scar(the one directly above his not shaved area.):
