    Imagine regrowing skin following a burn,

    Regrowing organs lost to cancer?

    Regrowing damaged nerves?

    Even regrowing a lost limb?

    Your foreskin?

    Ladies and Gentlemen, science may have come across something astonishing:

    Regenerative Powder

    Why Jason that's incredible. It's just amazing what they keep coming up with. Soon we'll all be living 200+ years. Sheesh, what would we do with the extra time?

    The OP actually did ask about the foreskin! :biggrin1:

    Regeneration is great, but how about a miracle cure for autoimmune diseases and cancer?

    Stem cells are awesome. That is all.

    Odd that they didn't mention the bladders that have been artificially created. I think a little girl born without a bladder was one of the first. This happened oh, about a year or 2 ago.

    I saw that CBS News story too. I couldn't believe the guy lost a whole digit on one finger and it grew back. I wonder if it is going to work for the amputees.

    Some scientists actually just recently grew an entire heart from scratch using the ECM from a heart and applying stem cells to it. Looks like whatever dictates stem cell fate is an intrinsic part of the ECM.

    I hope it's not the medical equivalent of cold fusion.
