Scientists Re-Grow a Frog’s Leg with a 5-Drug Cocktail
The bioreactor, which is worn on the stump of the frog, delivers a cocktail of five drugs to help it regrow an almost complete and functional limb.
Natural regeneration is out of reach for millions of people who have lost limbs due to reasons such as diabetes or trauma. Salamanders and super-heroes are the only ones who can regrow their legs and arms.
Scientists at Tufts University, Harvard University’s Wyss Institute and the Journal Science Advances have published a study that has brought us one step closer to regenerative medicine.
