DMSO & GHK: A Success Story
Background & Observations:
GHK-Cu improved the skin transplants with the best results being obtained by using GHK-Cu dissolved in a small amount of DMSO (dimethylsulfoxide).
Normally in skin grafts, most of the grafted skin dies off, and new skin grows outward from the surviving core of the skin graft. However, the addition of DMSO often so improved the graft "take" that the final graft "take" area exceeded the actual size of the skin graft.
Periphery of wound injected with 50 micrograms of GHK-Cu in 1% DMSO. Control wounds received 1% DMSO only. By 17 days post wounding, GHK-Cu accelerated healing and induced a "star" pattern of strong wound contraction.
