  • How "Decellularized Tissue Matrix" works

    The study described here intends to be the first step in the overall process of developing an innovative, regenerative therapy to reconstruct the ablated foreskin tissue of circumcised males faithfully. To this aim, we developed a functional tissue engineering scaffold, derived from the decellularized ECMs of the human foreskin dermis. The value of utilizing the biological scaffold described here is due to the presence of the same intrinsic anatomic and structural components that are biologically inherent in the foreskin tissue.


    So 15 French men consented to removal and donation of their foreskins for this study, their parts were shipped to Italy for this testing.
    Important acronyms: 'Fresh Frozen Foreskin' and 'Foreskin Dermal Matrix'

    Collogen, Elastic, and Fiberous structures remain once the chemical decellularization has happened.


    Good read. Hopefully they can figure out how to grow YOUR stemcells into someone's unwanted foreskin matrix, and have a viable part that can be installed onto YOU and actually work like it should.

    Even better if they could artificially make the structure that gets recellularized so no more Mutilation is involved.
    Saying someone is "Unmutilated" is like saying "Unsweet Tea". So you mean it's just Tea, in its natural state, that nobody has screwed up? It can't be Un- anything
