This is amazing: Scientists are growing vaginas for women with an incredibly rare disease


Scientists have been growing tracheas and tissues and organs for years. But now, they have successfully transplanted laboratory-grown vaginas into young adults who were born without one. The girls all had Mayer-Rokitansky-Küster-Hauser Syndrome, a rare disease that affects the female respiratory system by deforming organs or causing them not to form entirely.

 

According to CNN, the scientists started the challenging process by building a scaffold that mirrored the dimensions of the patients’ missing organs. They then extracted cells from their muscles and tissues, which were then strewn across the scaffold and nurtured so that it grew outside of the body. The most important part of this innovation is that because the new organ is grown entirely from the patients’ cells, the patients’ bodies are much less likely to reject the organ.

 

So far, so good. The vaginas seem to be accepted in their new bodies and are functioning properly, giving the patients normal lives, finally.

 

How cool is that, babes? Chat it out in the comments.
