Amazing new burns treatment

Quote:
Rather than sheets of skin being laboriously grown over a period of a month and applied to the patient, stem cells are harvested from a small patch of healthy skin, put into a solution and sprayed back on to the affected area.

The process takes only 90 minutes, said Dr Jörg Gerlach, of the University of Pittsburgh's McGowan Institute for Regenerative Medicine. And burns can heal in as little as four days.

I wonder if they're using this in Switzerland yet?

Re: Amazing new burns treatment

This looks terrific- there is a Nat. Geographic vid showing it that's not viewable here but some nice chap uploaded it to youtube. Really neat, I hope it as good as it seems.

(Image on vid looks horrible- wait till you see the results just a few days later )
