Scientists are claiming an amazing breakthrough – regrowing a man’s severed finger with the aid of an experimental powder.    Four weeks after Lee Spievack sliced almost half an inch off the top of one of his fingers, he said it had grown back to its original length.    Four months later it looked like any other finger, complete with “great feeling”, a fingernail and fingerprint.    Before and after: After cutting off the tip, Lee Spievack’s finger was back to normal in one month The secret to the astonishing regrowth is said to be the powder described by Mr Spievack, a Cincinnati model shop salesman, as “pixie dust”.     More properly known as extra-cellular matrix, it is bursting with collagen, the protein that gives skin its strength and elasticity, and is made from dried pig’s bladder.     It was developed to regenerate damaged ligaments in horses.     “The second time I put it on I could already see growth,” said Mr Spievack, 69.     “Each day it was up further.     “Finally it closed up and was a finger. It took about four weeks before it was sealed.”
