also if you're wondering the stem cells used were harvested from the patient's skin

I can't wait to use this line to convince a chick to let me facialize her. "Hey, baby... Can I spray you with my stem cell gun? It's good for you, I promise..."

I think humanity is on the verge (relatively speaking) of significantly extending our life expectancy. Maybe another 50-60 years and we'll be there. I think the children of my generation might be able to benefit from the stem cell research. Their kids might be looking at nanotechnology.

That's pretty amazing.

I have a friend who went to another country last year for some stem cell treatments for 2 issues...a hearing problem and a shoulder injury. The stem cells used on him(and apparently in Europe) were made from Sheep. He said his injury felt significantly better the next day...and his other issue was improved as much as the scarring would allow. He was definitely a believer in it.

This is one of the most amazing things I have ever heard in my life. Top five, at minimum.

Skin is an organ like any other. The idea of sampling existing, sound organ tissue, creating a medium with those cells, then regenerating the organ is the stuff of science fiction. It's not too difficult to imagine that, if they can do that with skin, they could eventually do it with any organ in the human body from gut to brain.

Incredible. Thanks for posting, Mr. Wyndex.

In the interest of providing some perspective ...

I once had the horrific misfortune to, for a brief time, share a room at KUMC with a burn victim. This poor young man had 2nd and 3rd degree burns over approximately 70% of his body. He was in unimaginable pain. The treatment? Tar. Black tar spread over his body that the nurses tried to keep him from rubbing off. And, of course, tons of IV morphine.

The difference between that treatment and this ... well, it's almost - and practically is - unimaginable.

Clearly so.

That experience was shocking to me. And frightening, really. Barbaric. I'll never forget it. Maybe that's why this particular advancement resonated with me so much.

That man was better off dead. I know that, had I been him, I would have been praying for death if not arranging for somebody to shoot me.

I didn't realize that second degree burns looked so bad. I would've thought those were third degree or worse.

This sounds like great stuff to help people who would otherwise suffer greatly, so bravo to the developers.

By "healed", does that mean that it doesn't hurt or anything? No scars, either? The guy looked perfectly normal, but I don't know if second-degree burns leave scars or not.

FAXi had a similar experience myself. I was in a physical rehab facility and was working out beside a fireman that had gotten 3rd degree burns on both arm all the way up to the shoulder. In fact, a couple of his fingers were gone because the burns were so bad. Horrible situation. :(

On Neil deGrasse Tyson's PBS show last week they were showing how entire organs are now being grown in labs. The hold-up before was that we could grow the cells, but not the structures. The solution was to use an existing organ from a donor animal (like a pig heart) and then place it in a chemical solution that stripped off all of the cells, leaving the underlying structure intact. Then the patient's own cells could be grown within the structure to create a transplantable organ ... without worrying about rejection.

The show profiled a woman in Spain whose doctor used the technique to grow a new trachea after hers had been ravaged by tuberculosis.

.. So since skin is just a large organ, could this be used to "repair" other organs? Perhaps reverse the effects of cigarrette smoking on lungs, fix heart murmurs, give sight to the blind? Things like that...

Since I was a burn victim here about a month before the 09 bash almost didn't make it because I was still recovering. I had a great burn physical therapist at Overland Park Regional she said I had about the 2nd worse burn she had seen in about the 15 plus years since she had been treating patients. This is an amazing treatment.

Stem Cell research is going to change medical science forever. I really hope the far far right doesn't stand in the way of any more stem cell research progress. I understand this process gathers them from a routine biopsy and isn't as controversial as fetus stem cells, but I also know stem cells from a fetus are 27 times stronger than adult stem cells. This is where it gets controversial, I believe as long as abortion is legal and happening why not allow at least research to continue. Missouri actually voted on this topic in 2006 and passed a law allowing the research untethered by government regulation. So the people spoke right? Stem cell research may go forward potentially saving, improving, and extending lives for people in desperate need right?!

Not exactly... The religious right led by a group named the Alliance Defense Fund filed an injunction in August 2010 that upholds the ban on embryonic stem cell research making the peoples vote and voice impotent once again. Argh...

The key to future medical advances in my opinion really seems split between nano technology and stem cell research, the latter being strangleheld by hokey extremists no different from Galileo's accusers in the 1600's. His argument concerning a heliocentric solar system may seem rather obvious now what with our space travel, Hubble telescope, observation centers, etc... but remember in his time brilliant people were jailed or put to death for such findings and research because it embarressed the mighty Holy Catholic Church.

“All truths are easy to understand once they are discovered; the point is to discover them.” Galileo

Which is exactly why you wont see this type of procedure become commonplace.

The global elite already want depopulation - this would obviously be counterproductive to those plans.

On a different note, this reminds me of that movie "Repo Men" (where, in the future, you can buy just about any new body part you need....for a price).
