Lab-grown bladders have already been transplanted into patients in the United States…ears, arteries, heart valves, fingers and toes are [also] being grown in this manner.

Also underway:

Home monitoring for the chronically ill, a robot nurse for the homebound and an anti-aging pill.

    The anti-aging pill will do it for me.

  2. Larry C. says:

    I agree with Ken. No need to grow new parts if you just stay young.

  3. Vicki says:

    Larry, even young people can (unfortunately) find themselves in need of a new body part.

  4. Bart Ingles says:

    “More will be known in the next two years.”

    I guess I can wait that long to begin self-experimentation.
