Identical twins


#1

I know that tissue will be rejected from one person to another. In dentistry there are alloderm “gum” tissue which can be grafted into patients mouths. It is basically treated cadaver gum tissue to remove the tissue rejection antigens.

I am not a scientist, but I was wondering if scientists could develop a solution, etc where fue is extracted, deactivated so no antigen rejection and then planted.

This would be a major breakthrough for an unlimited donor supply.

any comments from docs?

I am sure this has been thought of, tried, etc.

I also do no mean for pts to be on anti-rej meds. I am talking about treating the fue grafts so they are inert but can still grow

How’s it going?

Most likely this could be done. Hopefully follicle regeneration will continue to improve.
