Just saw this article at cnn.com:

Not that growing body parts is a new idea or anything; I remember studies of cloning organs going on a few years ago.

I really think this one is overhyped tbh. Unlike the soldier they're talking about treating with it now, the first injured guy(the brother of the man trying to sell this pig-powder by the way) only lost a tiny slice off the end of his fingertip which would have healed anyway. Growing new limbs sounds reasonable enough to me, but I'm sure it'd take more than just rubbing a little pile of extracellular matrix goo on a stump to do it.
