New Tissue-Engineered Blood Vessel Replacements a Step Closer to Human Trials
from University of Minnesota via Medical Xpress
Researchers at the University of Minnesota have created a new lab-grown blood vessel replacement that is composed completely of biological materials, but surprisingly doesn't contain any living cells at implantation. The vessel, that could be used as an "off the shelf" graft for kidney dialysis patients, performed well in a recent study with nonhuman primates.
