Guessing interesting growth factors might be...

  1. Platelet-derived growth factor (PDGF): PDGF is a hormone that stimulates the growth of blood vessels and other cells. It has been shown to promote the regeneration of heart tissue, liver tissue, and other organs in animals and humans.
  2. Stem cell factor (SCF): SCF is a hormone that stimulates the growth and development of stem cells. It has been shown to promote the regeneration of blood cells, bone marrow, and other tissues in animals and humans.
