I noticed that a new drug called Pirfenidone has been released by InterMune. Looks like it's used as a treament for fibrotic lung diseases in Japan. There is also a topical gel called Kitoscell, but it's currently only available in Mexico.

Kitoscell is used for treament of skin scars, they say it "eliminates fibrosis". It should work for both new and old scars. It should inhibit production of growth factor TGF-B1 so it may have some similarities to copper peptides? Do you think it actually works? Only official information I have found can be found in pdf files at kitoscell.com

Thank you for possible answers. :)

There does not seem to be any independent data on it. Also, the PDF is in Spanish, which, unfortunately, I do not read.
