it seems to me we really don’t know much about how acell works, even from a practical point of view… like, what exactly is it doing?
also, some have said acell was tested on human skin grafted onto dogs or mice - really? where is the photographic evidence that it worked? can we see some photos of this human hair growing, please???
another question that nobody’s brought up here - and before you all want to lynch me, just let me say it’s another PRACTICAL issue that may have eluded lots of people, even the experimenters:
what if acell is just stretching the skin on those dogs? what if it’s just encouraging the skin to stretch and close the wound, without really creating new skin or hair (fur)?
in other words, what if the results are just sort of a visual trick? we see wounds being closed with skin and fur, but how do we know the wound isn’t just shrinking and pulling the existing healthy skin around it, to close the wound?
have they actually confirmed that this is all BRAND NEW skin and fur? have they tagged some of the fur on the circumference of the fresh wound - maybe put a string or tape or clip around some of the hair - and then watch to see if the same hair isn’t just moving as the skin stretches over the wound?
seems to me that if new hair was actually being created, the fur on the edges of the wound would always look like small, new vellus hairs and then gradually mature into thicker terminal hairs.
but to me, it LOOKS like what we’re seeing is that the hairs on the edges of the wound always look the same - like long, thick, terminal hair or fur.
i admit i may be totally wrong or off base on this, maybe someone with more knowledge can shed some light on it, but it is a question worth asking…
