Default Man ReGrows Fingertip

[link=http://www.cbsnews.com/sections/i_video/main500251.shtml?id=3805459n]Video of the story at CBS NEWS[/link]

This guy cut off his fingertip with an RC plane and then he had it grow back with Doc's help


Got to be damn careful.

Better still, keep the fingers out of the prop and retain the undamaged original.

Your thread. What's it about? I watched the video.

I agree with Pat Roy keep your fingers well clear of the prop. Then you don't need a Doc.

I would think that it would be patently obvious that one keeps ones fingers away from the prop. Duh but accidents happen Right?

The video showed how an unfortunate accident was helped with some new science. If that is too hard to grasp then I cannot help you.

My intention in submitting this video was just to pass along a piece of interesting information.

Yes they do happen, I've seen a few.

New science is not hard to grasp. An I give my brain a chance...most times.

Just not sure what point of view you're coming from.

Hip, let's hope none of us need that service. And those that do can benefit. Especially, the other people in the video.

The military seems very interested in the new science of adult stem cells. I know I'm very interested. I hope this research isn't banned in the states for religious reasons like earlier research with infant stem cells was.
I actually saw this stroy run on the nightly news a few monthes ago. When I relayed the info to a friend at the field they thought I was crazy. It just sounded too incredible to be true.
There is some question as to weather the technology works with older wounds.

Thanks for posting this Fritz! I hope I never need that technology. But, I am very exicted to see that regeneration is a reality, even if it is just in it's infancy! Absolutely fascinating!

You're Welcome. Glad you liked it

I hope to hell none of us ever need this treatment.

Its amazing to think how this technology might even grow a leg back some day...

Thanks, Fritz, for posting this. I have more interest here than most since I lost a leg in an accident some time ago. Wish this technology had been available then. To those who have never had an accident, I can understand how you can minimize and ridicule this. Just keep your fingers (or whatever body part) out of the way and you won't ever have to consider such technology. But to those of us who have been unfortunate enough to lose a body part through no fault of our own, this is exciting stuff.

Thanks again, Fritz. I did not see this on TV.
