Interesting! I'm really confused by it but still intrigued! How was it able to regrow everything as new?? Even the nail and everything... Weird. But that would be amazing if they could put it to widespread use

that is really weird. but they are already growing ears and other parts off mice and stuff, so i suppose that's sort of the same thing

Did anybody see the southpark where they were growing body parts on mice? That's what i thought of when reading this.

It's awesome though! Let's hope it works!!

I feel like saying this must be a hoax...
 
I could be wrong but I'd put the odds at about 85% that it is.

~Pancolitis (Mild to Moderate)
 ~I had Mono in 2000

But they really can do stuff like that.
