Making liver tissue in the lab for transplants and drug screening
from American Chemical Society via Lab Manager
Engineered liver tissue could have a range of important uses, from transplants in patients suffering from the organ's failure to pharmaceutical testing. Now scientists report in the American Chemical Society's journal Analytical Chemistry the development of such a tissue, which closely mimics the liver's complicated microstructure and functions more effectively than existing models.
