Medical research has made true dermal regeneration possible to a greater extent than ever before (for more on the science side of things, see our page on The Science of Regeneration). However, foreskin regeneration has not yet been tried, despite our knowledge that foreskin fibroblasts respond extremely well to regenerative technologies which create new skin. Foregen believes that it is time such a trial was undertaken.
Foregen will conduct a trial to reattach regenerated foreskins to circumcised adult males to restore the vascularity, nerve endings, and function that are excised during circumcision.
Foregen's road map towards our ultimate goal of male foreskin regeneration is as follows:
Step 3 consists of fully regenerating animal foreskins and then conducting the same experiments on human foreskin. These results will be published in a peer-reviewed journal.
Of course, this road map is a simplification. There are complexities and uncertainties in such a trial as there are in any clinical trial that pioneers something new. Foregen cannot guarantee the final outcome or predict unforeseen obstacles that may fall in our way. However, Foregen recognizes the need for such a trial. We know how much success dermal regeneration has had in other areas, so we have good reason to believe that it will succeed in ours. While the outcome is not, and cannot, be certain, it is clear that we must try.
The trials will be controlled and have the proper governmental approval. The trials will not be conducted by Foregen personnel, but rather by medical professionals adhering to the highest ethical standards of practice and research.
Currently we are actively recruiting trial participants who are:
A clinical trial is estimated to take up to eight weeks, though not all of that period will be spent under medical supervision. If you satisfy the above requirements and are interested in volunteering for this trial, we would be happy to hear from you. All medical care will be provided free of charge and you will be able to withdraw from the trial at any stage.
Volunteering for this clinical trial makes you eligible to benefit first from the most advanced medical technologies available for foreskin regeneration. However, such participation, like all medical procedures, carries some risk. The medical professionals conducting the trial will discuss with you the full range of options, possibilities, and dangers in order to assess your suitability for a trial. They will also, of course, need to obtain your full informed consent to participate in the trial.
Any person who indicates an interest is not under any obligation if you lose interest, you will be removed from our list of potential participants upon request. (But we don’t think you’ll want to!)
* Please note, this does not enroll you in future clinical trials, it simply ensures you receive relavent information regarding those trials as it becomes available.
