Can we both agree that inhibitors that work on both collagen and fibrin (as long as they don’t have a negative side effect) will likely result in an elongation of the newbie gain window?
Probably. The question is whether these same inhibitors will also inhibit gains, which, after all, require the production of new tissue. The goal is to promote growth, but without strengthening the tissues to the point that they resist further extension.
I agree with you that, as long as they are safe (and that’s perhaps the tricky part), compounds that inhibit or delay healing are prime candidates for extending newbie gains.
If you haven’t seen it already, be sure to check out the paper on PD posted above (Graziottin_326_340.pdf). Toward the end there is a table of compounds that are thought to help break up fibrosis. Many of these were mentioned earlier in this thread by you, Shiver, and Mr. Tips. Regardless of whether “fibrosis” and “strengthening” are really the same, it’s certainly worth considering whether each of these compounds can offer benefits to PE’ers.
