Medical science progress…new teeth…new flu shots

PROGRESS IN GROWING natural replacement teeth: “The significance here isn’t just in the ability to grow teeth. The jaw responded to the teeth by growing supporting bone and nerves. The bone growth wasn’t enough to restore full normal bone support. So there’s still a need to develop methods to control bone growth. But the result suggests the potential to achieve full restoration of both bone and teeth after periodontal disease or trauma. The era of regenerative medicine is drawing near.”

Faster, please.

This from Glenn too: FASTER, PLEASE: Long-term, universal flu shot on horizon. “A universal flu vaccine that protects against all strains may be within reach in the next five years, replacing annual shots developed for specifics flu viruses, the chief of the National Institutes of Health predicts.”
