    Default Could Be Useful

    Researchers have developed a device that can switch cell function to rescue failing body functions with a single touch. The technology, known as Tissue Nanotransfection (TNT), injects genetic code into skin cells, turning those skin cells into other types of cells required for treating diseased conditions.

    "By using our novel nanochip technology, injured or compromised organs can be replaced. We have shown that skin is a fertile land where we can grow the elements of any organ that is declining," said Dr. Chandan Sen, director of Ohio State's Center for Regenerative Medicine & Cell Based Therapies

    Ln the study, researchers were able to reprogram skin cells to become vascular cells in badly injured legs that lacked blood flow. Within one week, active blood vessels appeared in the injured leg, and by the second week, the leg was saved. In lab tests, this technology was also shown to reprogram skin cells in the live body into nerve cells that were injected into brain-injured mice to help them recover from stroke.

    "With this technology, we can convert skin cells into elements of any organ with just one touch. This process only takes less than a second and is non-invasive, and then you're off. The chip does not stay with you, and the reprogramming of the cell starts."

    Thumbs up yes you can in theory

    The most popular argument about male pattern baldness is that in men with certain genetic variants testosterone causes damage and obstructions in the blood vessels of the hair follicles in the temporal, parietal and occipital zones of the head, not on other parts of the body. With the technology, you could regenerate those blood vessels like the vessels of the mice and virtually eliminate the male pattern baldness.

    So yes, it could be useful and probably cheap.

    Could it act for erectile dysfunction?
