In our ongoing preparations for human clinical trials we have enlisted the support of Dr. José A. Vega, a peripheral nerve specialist at the University of Oviedo, in Spain. Dr. Vega has more than 40 years of experience and has co-authored more than 350 articles and 50 chapters in books mainly devoted to the peripheral nervous system. This is directly relevant to our research.
Why It Matters
As we develop plans for our future human clinical trials, achieving full reinnervation of the new foreskin tissue is a top priority. Therefore we must focus on ensuring the peripheral nervous system, which includes such structures as Meissner's Corpuscles, regains full functionality.
Dr. Vega's recent research includes an in-depth exploration of the sensory anatomy of the human male foreskin, with a specific emphasis on the prevalence of Meissner's corpuscles.
What Are Meissner's Corpuscles?
Meissner's corpuscles are a type of nerve ending in the skin that is responsible for sensitivity to light touch. In other parts of the body, they're typically found in the upper layers of skin such as the dermis. They are most densely packed in areas like the fingertips and lips, which are especially sensitive to touch. Research has shown that the male foreskin is densely populated with these unique structures.
You Can Make the Difference
As we progress toward human clinical trials, our needs will only grow. To meet future challenges head on, we intend to accrue additional partnerships with specialized experts to help ensure our continued success. Every dollar you give supports our mission and helps us plan our research, recruit scientists, and secure the facilities and equipment we need to carry out our essential laboratory experiments.
