Novel Functional Mini-liver Discovered by 3D Bioprinting Technology

Publicado em 18 dezembro 2019
New study has succeeded in obtaining hepatic organoids ("mini-livers") that perform all of the liver's typical functions, like producing vital proteins, storing vitamins, and secreting bile, among many others using human blood cells. The innovation permits the production of hepatic tissue in the laboratory in only 90 days and may, in the near future, become an alternative to organ transplantation. The findings of the study are published in the journal Biofabrication. The study [...]
