It sounds straight out of a comic book: Scientists have figured out a way to inject gene-carrying nanoparticles into stem cells in order to make wounds heal faster. I’d get my superheroine costume ready if the method wasn’t potentially cancer-causing.

The basic idea is to use nanoparticles to deliver a gene into stem cells which will “encourage new blood vessels to grow so that the tissue stays alive.” The results in mice certainly do sound encouraging:

When the modified cells were injected into mice whose hind limbs had been injured, the tissue that regrew to repair the damage had three times the blood vessel density of similar tissue in mice given unmodified cells. Four weeks later, only 20 per cent of the mice given modified cells had lost limbs, compared with 60 per cent in mice that received unmodified cells

The trouble with injecting modified cells like this is that the effects seem to drop off after a period of time. Scientists are looking for other methods, such as using a virus to transmit the gene, but “the viral approach is not without risks–viruses can integrate into the genome of cells and linger permanently, potentially causing cancer or immune reactions.” I guess I won’t be dashing around town playing heroine anytime soon, but maybe they’ll sort out the whole thing in a few generations.

 

Sam Speaks: –

So Guys here is the coolest thing that can happen to anyone in the whole life. Just imagine guys this power can make you immortal……Oh my GOD!!!!!  isn’t it interesting. Think no one will die and the population will rise. Let me tell you that we Indian doesnot require any such power to increase the population. HeHeHeHeHe ;).

Jokes apart friends. But this is revolutionary. As per my opinion each and everything has got pros and cons. Lets discussed in brief:-

Positive:– 

You can heal your wound and even you can save  any person who is dying.     If this could happen then it is just like miracle.

Negative:

There is preponderancy of the Antisocials elements in this world. So they can use this invention for their sake too. And as we all know if they will be going to use it then it will only lead to destruction. And no one can afford it.

But overall it will be a great achievement for all of us if we will get it.

Let me know how many of you people are going to grow those constantine(a kind of metal which is named as used to make Wolverine from Logan…….as we all know that this kind of metal doesnot exist) steel fangs in their hands 🙂
