Future Uses of Remodeling Copper Peptides

GHK-Cu remains the best molecule for internal medical treatments. The physiological function of GHK-Cu in the human body appears to be as a protectant and repair signal for damaged tissues. It is possible that GHK-Cu could be used clinically to protect and speed repair of damaged organs. H. Paul Ehrlich found that intra-muscular injection of GHK-Cu into the thigh muscle of rabbits raised circulating wound macrophages in the blood and accelerated the healing of distant wounds in the rabbit ear. Patients might be pre-treated with GHK- Cu before surgery to enhance post-surgical repair. Based on rabbit models, a dosage of 30 milligrams of GHK-Cu should suffice. The molecule is also very beneficial on kidney organ culture. Thus, GHK-Cu might be infused into patients with kidney failure to exert its tissue protective and repair actions. Potential clinical targets would be injuries to, or system failure of, tissues such as skin, bone, kidneys, and the gastrointestinal intestinal tract. GHK-Cu might be administered after traumatic tissue injury such as automobile accidents.

The newer breakdown resistant, highly adhesive copper peptides currently under development should prove better for cosmetic and superficial uses such as post-procedure dermatological healing, and development of scarless surgical procedures. The copper peptides appear to be very useful for post-procedure recovery after skin peels, dermabrasion and laser resurfacing. The combination of hydroxy acids and these peptides slowly, over a period of several months, reduces old scars and skin lesions. This method is economical and avoids the complications that often occur after chemical peels or laser treatments. In experimental studies, the use of such types of copper peptides after surgical procedures often results in scarless or nearly scarless healing.
