put a little hare around it......(i hate myself for that)
Bonanza Jellybean: He might be amused. Didn't some former girlfriends corroborate the story about him needing to watch gay porn to get it up?
ramen_for_all: Rule #34?
Kay Kay Nay: Useless without pics of implanted rabbit penis./you know, for science
bersl2: ramen_for_all: Rule #34?You don't want to invoke that. Trust me.
TheMega: This has some interesting implications if available to the general public... and if it could be accomplished quickly... at a party.. on the first bastage that passes out. Would sure make the ol` "marker penis" on the forehead rather lame in comparison!
DirtyHarry: /Sad i had to be the one to post this//was expecting more
brandied: No Such AgencyON TOPIC... if they can use tissue engineering to grow a (functional) complex hydraulic organ like the penis, that's a big step to being able to grow a lot of other things the same way. I don't see this as just phallocentric medical science.Then what the hell are you doing on Fark???
pla: Okay, so this sounds reasonably cool, but I have just one great big freakin' problem with it...Where do you get "penis scaffolds"? This guy had them available because he cut them off perfectly functional male rabbits.But this seems kinda like a chicken-and-egg problem - "Good news! We can grow your right eye back! We just need to remove your left eye, hollow it out to make a scaffold..."
spacechicken170am: So we decide that the penis is the organ that needs grown first from stem cells? Not a liver, heart, lung, or even an eye....a penis.
greentea1985: spacechicken170am: So we decide that the penis is the organ that needs grown first from stem cells? Not a liver, heart, lung, or even an eye....a penis.Penises make a good model organ. It's a complex organ with numerous tissue types. It can be removed without killing the research animals (hint, lab animals are expensive and come with a shiat-load of regulations) and there are some easy tests for function. It makes a good model to prove that these techniques work. Now these tissue-generating techniques can be used to start generating livers, hearts, lungs, or eyes larger penises, double and triple penises, FtoM transformer penises...
pablodolanez: Dr Atala hopes the approach will work with other organs."We have made clitoral tissue in the past," he said.What is this clitoral organ you speak of?
