Special Containment Procedures: Documentation related to the production of SCP-XXXX is to be made available to Foundation medical staff, who are tasked with the further production of Foundation medical formula FN-MED-XXXX. Containment of SCP-XXXX itself must be mixed with saline solution, and must be stored in any standard laboratory freezer capable of holding a stable temperature of -30°C.

Fully cured SCP-XXXX is to be used as the active ingredient in medical formula FN-MED-XXXX. Personnel wishing to utilize FN-MED-XXXX or any of its derivatives are to ensure that they are not allergic to any components used in the formula.1 FN-MED-XXXX-A and -B has a shelf life of 12 months when kept out of direct sunlight and in temperatures below 30°C. An experimental formula, FN-MED-XXXX-C, although reduced in efficacy, has shown promise for its long shelf life and the ingestion method through pills.

Description: SCP-XXXX is a designation given to a discovered sequence of mRNA. SCP-XXXX was derived through careful study of medical anomalies, especially SCP-427, SCP-500, and SCP-5980.2

SCP-XXXX, when introduced to a living organism, will cause ribosomes inside the organism's cells (henceforward referred to as the "subject") to produce an anomalous virus, designated SCP-XXXX-1. SCP-XXXX-1, unlike normal viruses, do not kill off the host cell; instead, they optimize the functions of the host cell3.

Subjects affected by SCP-XXXX-1 also undergo rapid cellular regeneration. This effect seems to have a limit: tests conducted on D-Class subjects have concluded that SCP-XXXX is able to rapidly "heal" mild cuts, abrasions, and even small gun wounds, but is unable to completely regenerate major trauma, including arms and vital organs4. SCP-XXXX-1 also seems to eradicate toxins, chronic health conditions, and improve mental health at a rapid rate. Research into using SCP-XXXX as a mental treatment is ongoing.

Addendum 1 - Discovery: [DATA EXPUNGED]

Addendum 2 - Specifications of FN-MED-XXXX:

-A The most concentrated form of SCP-XXXX, containing 10mg. Best used for rapid recovery when stabilizing personnel is a priority. Not recommended for continuous use.
Average time of cellular repair: <1 min.
Average time of toxin eradication: <30 sec.
-B The most common formula utilized widely by the Foundation. Contains 5mg. While not as effective as -A regarding time, it is recommended for its stability and the low risk of complications.
Average time of cellular repair: ~5 min.
Average time of toxin eradication: ~2 min.
-C This experimental formula has been specially designed to be stored dry. The least effective of the three, as it requires time for hydration of SCP-XXXX before use by cells. This formula is under emergency use authorization as painkillers to save formulas -A and -B for more critical personnel.
Average time of cellular repair: ~15 min.
Average time of toxin eradication: ~5 min.
