LABORATORY GROWN DISCS MAY CURE BACK PAIN…

According to an article in http://news.sciencemag.org degenerating disks may soon be replaceable with bioengineered disk implants grown in the laboratory. Sarah Williams wrote’ A research team has implanted living, biologically based disks into rats spines and found that they all had as much movement as native, healthy discs’.

Although the bioengineered disks haven’t made it to human testing yet, it is a step in the right direction.

  1. We should not forget replacing with mechanical solutions causes problems in body. The biological way is the best but costs too much because you need one labratory. Star Trek 4 and Star Trek TNG series show one simple pill let grow inside you one organ and replaces at right position. 😉 It is a goal of every natural sciences. 😉
