Skin Graft Technology

Pretty soon people needing skin grafts won't need to have strip of flesh transplanted from their leg or other body part. Doctors will just use some cultured skin grown in a lab. What's not mentioned in the link is that this artificial skin is derived from cells taken from neonatal foreskin. That's right, newborn circumcision leftovers. It has something to do with the fact that the cells won't trigger an immune response so they won't get rejected when transplanted.
