A fascinating new study describes that the researchers have managed to create a fully functional mini-supply out of human skin cells, and they subsequently successfully transplanted them into rats.
It will write the media to the Inverse according to the Science.dk.
the Study indicates how the new, revolutionary technology potentially potentially can completely change the progress of organ transplantation, and that in the future, maybe even not will be the need for organ donors.
Co-author of the study, Alejandro Soto-Gutiérrez, a researcher in regenerative medicine at the University of Pittsburg, is thrilled and points out that the study is important, because now we know that it can be possible to develop organs on the way,
'You can make a completely functional body out of a single hudcelle,' says Soto-Gutiérrez according to the inverse.
In the future can biofabrikationen of the bodies might help to reduce the shortage of organs and make the transplant process both faster and cheaper.
the Technology might also be used to improve the condition in patients with liver disease and liver failure, while waiting for a full transplant, writes Inverse. the

Soto-Gutiérrez explains according to the Inverse, that they are planning to make the mini-supply, which is universal. It will say that the researchers want to biofabrikere levertransplantater, as all can benefit from.
But how do you make so such a mini-live?
Soto-Gutiérrez and the research team took hudcelleprøver from a group of participants. Then re-programmed the skin cells into so-called pluripotent stem cells - cells that have the potential to become all cell types in the body.
the Cells were then transformed into various types of liver cells, which were then planted in the leverstrukturer from rottelevere, whose own cells had been removed. It writes Inverse.
Matures a live naturally, it takes up to two years before it is finished. But it took the researchers less than a month to grow mini-livers are in the bioreaktorer. the

the Research team transplanted the mini-livers are from the laboratory into immuno-compromised rats, which were specially bred not to reject transplanted organs. And after four days it seemed the mini-livers are still on, even though there were problems with the blood flow, writes Inverse.
In the longer term, the aim is to be able to create organs that could replace organ donation. But already in the near future, imagine a researcher Soto-Gutiérrez themselves that technology can help leverpatienter
'In acute liver failure, for example, you might only need a temporary boost of the liver, and not a completely new living,' says Soto-Gutiérrez according to the Inverse.
the Researchers behind the study hope that the technology can lead to within the next 10 years will be able to create a universal levertransplantat. It writes Inverse. the
