Artificial Penis Tissue Looks Like Good News For Males

   Lab study of artificial penis tissue encourages scientists  working at intimate male problems.

  After implantation with replacement tissue, lab rabbits that once had damaged penises had working organs and could produce offspring.

  "Further studies are required, of course, but our results are encouraging and suggest that the technology has considerable potential for patients who need penile reconstruction," said researcher Dr. Anthony Atala, director of Wake Forest University Baptist Medical Center's Institute for Regenerative Medicine in Winston-Salem, N.C.

  Such methods could potentially aid men who just want to enhance their normal penises, rather than repairing any damage.

  "Our intent and the goal of our work is to provide a solution for men who need penile erectile tissue for medical reasons," Atala told LiveScience.

  The real hope is "that patients with congenital abnormalities, penile cancer, traumatic injury and some cases of erectile dysfunction will benefit from this technology in the future," Atala said.

  Fox News  has contributed to the report.
