Foregen’s goal is to heal the physical detriment that that is inherent to circumcision.

Regenerative medical techniques now offer a greater possibility than ever to regrow human tissue, especially dermal tissue, lost in prior trauma. Regenerative medicine has been used to recreate vaginas of women with some congenital conditions[1]. Experiments have been performed to regenerate the penis of rabbits.[2] [3][4] Also progress has been made in penile transplants[5] [6] and phalloplasties[7]. However, regenerative medicine has not yet been applied to those who have been circumcised and no longer wish to be.

Foregen was founded by Mr. Vincenzo Aiello to promote and arrange a clinical trial that would use regenerative techniques to regrow the tissue removed at circumcision. After dismissing many unsatisfactory proposals from research institutions, Foregen decided to conduct its own research and clinical trials. Foregen has applied regenerative techniques to animal foreskins and will continue research on adult human foreskins.

Foregen’s tasks are:

  • To experiment with animal tissue to obtain a viable method of foreskin regeneration
  • To apply the expirience from animal experiments to regenerate human foreskins
  • To advance onto clinical trials once Foregen proves that regenerating human foreskin is possible

Foregen™ was created in 2010 thanks to donor funds. Foregen operates in the United States and Europe. Its head office is in Rome, Italy, where it is a registered charity (Reg. No. 6482, Serie 1T, 2010). See original founding documents here. Foregen is also tax-exempt under section 501(c)(3) of the internal revenue code and is headed by a board of charitable directors with participants and donors across both continents and beyond.
