Here's the article:

I thought it notable because the process of longitudinal growth in humans happens because of the ossification of cartilage to bone. In and of itself it does not mean much but it could have future implications for artificial growth.

Thanks for sharing. Kind of reminds me of this article:

What the members of this forum need to realize is that it takes 5-30+ years after such an invention takes place for it to make its way into medical procedures and even longer for it to become a cosmetic procedure. Ilizarov fixation, for example, took about 30 years after it's invention to be used cosmetically in non-dwarf patients. But the fact that this stem cell technology now exists is indeed huge news worthy of sharing. Personally, I hope that this new technology will allow forearm and possibly finger lengthening to become a safe reality in the future, because, currently, these two types of lengthening are too difficult and risky to pursue with distraction osteogenesis.
