dupuytren's contracture

I have read that this deformity happens when the collagen type I in the hand is for some reason replaced by collagen type III. 

 

Has anyone seen or heard any musings about using copper peptides to stimulate the replacement of the type III with type I thus getting rid of the problem?

 

I'm just thinking outside the box here...I hope the doctor might think about it and comment.
