'Lou Spievack, a man who severed the tip of his finger on the propeller of a model plane has regrown it by treating it with an extract of pigs bladder for four weeks. According to Mr Spievack the finger has been restored to it's original dimensions.
The treatment was suggested to him by his brother who is a former Havard surgeon. His brother started a company using the same treatment method to treat damaged ligaments in horses.
The US military is now trying the treatment on as many as ten soldiers for whom there is no other treatment option. One doctor described the treatment as "a shot in the dark". The results are expected to be known in between six and ten weeks.'
Now, i don't know if the bone grew back ( or if it was even severed to begin with) but this is freakin' awesome! Forget working with expensive cell research! Looks like it's back to the Dark-Age alchemy! The scientist are also studying salamanders that can regrow legs. This opens up a huge new field!!
