CBS news today reported on a ‘growing miracle’ using stem cells in regenerative medicine.
The news item and video focuses on a finger grown in just 4 weeks, where new flesh, nail, and vessels replaced a finger lost in an accident.
The news item also reports on similar success in heart repair, growing new skin following severe burns and repair of damaged heart tissue.
The US Military have invested huge sums of money to ensure the research in these areas continues. It is hoped that stem cell treatment in regenerative medicine will one day replace the need for both surgery and artificial limbs.

It is important to remember that the key to all these treatments is to have your own stem cells readily available, thus eliminating rejection and the need for lifelong drugs.
