I actually have an intellectually vested interest, over and above Sheriff's history, I am curious about the possibility of human use.
This year, I had both a total hip and knee replacement due to severe Osteoarthritis. I am still looking at a patella (knee cap) replacement. This was mostly due to excessive abuse of my joints due to my athletically joint abusive lifestyle. Soccer, tennis, full contact martial arts, extreme aerobic exercise, long distance cycling and the like. There was traumatic injury involved, but most was "wear and tear". Probably some genetic issues also. I am 64 yo and have been dealing with these issues since I was a kid.
My offered solutions were negligible.... Pain killers, half-ass PT, NSAIDS, etc. So... I ended up with joint replacements.
It hasn't been easy, but I can't complain. I can walk again and am looking forward to accelerating my physical exercise.
The bottom line, is that the concept of cell regeneration interests me.
