Explorer: The Skin Gun
A simple idea backed by stem cell research allows victims of severe burns to heal in merely days.
As someone who has worked with burn patients, this could be great for the future of burn treatment. However, second degree burns can heal on their own- not all, mind you, each burn is different, but a lot can with proper wound care. Nowhere in the video did it say that this can be used on third and fourth degree burns, the burns that are generally responsible for overtaking our patients.
The recent, amazing advances in medicine using our own stem cells gives me hope for the many people who suffer with chronic illness. Check this out. It's amazing!
I wonder if the same technique can be used to deal with the affects of skin cancer. Can the gun be used to spray new stem cells after the removal of skin cancer cells is my question?
this might have saved my brother - 24 years old. he died a week before his wedding was planned to be happening, in 1994. a tragedy. what a wonderful thing if this could work!
