    Scientists Grow New Penile Tissue in the Lab
    Rabbits implanted with new cells regained sexual function, study says.

    MONDAY, Nov. 9 (HealthDay News) -- Researchers were able to restore sexual function to rabbits with damaged penises by growing new penile tissue in the lab and implanting it, a new study reports.

    "We were able to show the tissue was able to integrate and function in the long term, which means we can start planning clinical applications [in humans]," said Dr. Anthony Atala, director of the Institute for Regenerative Medicine at Wake Forest University Baptist Medical Center and senior author of the study. "Our hope is to be able to treat patients with many conditions, including congenital abnormalities of the penis, traumatic injuries, penile cancer and severe cases of erectile dysfunction that don't benefit from drug treatments."

    I think this will be targeted (at first) to help people with injuries, scars or congenital problems in that area. Of course, enlargement seems to be on the minds of most guys.

    yeah it has always shocked me that with all of our scientific and technological and medical advancements, the one thing that almost every man secretly or openly wishes he could alter about himself has been beyond our reach.... and it seems so simple too. maybe this will, as Bunjamon hints, lead toward helping people rise above their genetic lottery circumstances there.

    If only they'd innovate, they'd realize the cure for the common cold is to grow a penis in the throat.

    How long before the technology is for sale as "grow a penis kit"? It'll sure hurt the sale of the "clone a willy kits" .

    With this new technology maybe they could.... why be so caught up in conformity and the conservative idea that the penis HAS to be placed between the legs... why not under the armpits? under each armpit ! icon_eek.gif

    For years, I've been telling my friends that they should relax about their kids wanting body piercings and tattoos. Their grandkids are going to be coming home with lizard scales and penises grafted to their foreheads.

    this doesnt surprise me.

    scientists have been able to get a completely dead unbeating heart from a rat that's been preserved for a few days. and been able to regenerate that same heart with similar techniques, and have it start beating again.

    they have completely generated physical tissue to become an ear. and then have that ear grow on the back of a rat (to get blood circulating through the ear before "implant".

    the practices are all being done and researched. although they sound extremely sci-fi, the reason they never get out is because only approved and credited scientific work is allowed to be publicly seen and scrutinized by the public.

    im just wondering just how far scientists are willing to go to do their research before they get to a point and realise that they might actually be trying to play God.
