Aspatos is the pseudonym of writer and scientist Javier Orozco, born 1970 in León, Guanajuato, Mexico.

Scientific activity[edit]

Javier Orozco was the first to propose the use of cell culture techniques for industrial use,[1] in order to obtain skin of exotic animals and endangered species, as material for manufacture leather articles, without killing any animal. The culture of human skin and other tissues for medical use, it is possible for several years,[2] and is a very effective treatment in patients with severe and extensive burns. Unfortunately the first materials have been always skin with little mechanical strength. The first commercially available skin has composed of two major cell types: keratinocytes and fibroblasts. Eventually have appeared patents,[3] with better cell differentiation, trying to get skin histologically identical to human skin.[4] Javier Orozco proposed using these techniques leading to cell growth in textile matrices which will provide the necessary mechanical strength. Analyzing the processing of skin to leather (tanning), there are the possibilities of reducing the pollution arising from the tanneries,[5] using less water, salt (sodium chloride), eliminating chemicals to remove hair, such as sodium sulfide. But better yet, could induce the development in molds, achieving growth in form of a shoe or jacket, or other commercial commodity, avoiding excess waste during the cutting phase, even removing this fraction in the factories of these items.

Scientific publications[edit]

Javier Orozco has published Useful Plants of the City,[6] a scientific text that describes vegetables that grow in parks, vacant lots, public squares and gardens, with economic use such as textiles, perfumes, insecticides, food, medicines and other commodities. Published, among other articles, studies on evidence of climate change in the Bajío region in central Mexico.[7]

Literature publications[edit]

Can be cited: “Manual of legends” [8] and "The Crying of Charon",[9] the book of poems: “Theocracy” [10] and "Verses from Shadows",[11] and plaquettes: “The Muse and the Warrior”,[12] one of whose characters is named after his pseudonym Aspatos, "The Song of the Lady"[13] and "Bruma".[14]

Newspaper publications, and others[edit]

Public the weekly column "Distant Echoes" in the newspaper "El Sol de León". He is currently Director of the Faculty of Industrial Engineering from the University of León.
