“Dylan Melancon estimates that he was going 70 miles an hour when he crashed his motorcycle on a hot New Orleans highway this past June.

He wasn’t wearing leathers or other protective clothing. Melancon’s virtually unprotected body slid along the concrete at high speed for yards. “I was wearing dress pants and a T-shirt. Afterwards, I was wearing no pants,” the 26-year-old nursing student said.

Melancon had deep burns and abrasions on his knees, elbows, thighs, stomach and back. They were the kind of injuries that usually put people into the hospital for months of painful skin grafts.

Melancon’s doctor instead got permission to treat him with ReCell, a spray-on skin product designed to treat burns with a slurry of the patient’s own skin cells.”  Click here to read the full story.
