Dear Foregen Supporters,
We are thrilled to announce the completion of the histological analysis of decellularized tissue implanted in sheep by Dr. Angela Palumbo. This is a significant step towards achieving our mission of creating functional human foreskin tissue.
"Things are super positive," she wrote excitedly to Founder Vincenzo Aiello. "There are many blood vessels well-shaped, and the scaffold is re-epithelialized. It's a fantastic thing."
In simple terms, Dr. Palumbo's findings show the implanted tissue has undergone successful re-epithelialization, and healthy blood vessels have formed in the scaffold. This is a crucial step in regenerating fully functional human foreskin tissue as it indicates that host cells have colonized the tissue. Before attempting to integrate foreskin tissue in human hosts, it is vital to prove that this is possible.
Aiello has delivered a personal address for this important update.
We want to express our gratitude to our dedicated donors for making this exciting and innovative research possible.
