Milestone reached in work to build replacement kidneys in the lab

Milestone reached in work to build replacement kidneys in the lab | bioengineering | Scoop.it
Regenerative medicine researchers at Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center have addressed a major challenge in the quest to build replacement kidneys in the lab. Working with human-sized pig kidneys, the scientists developed the most successful method to date to keep blood vessels in the new organs open ...

Cell-based therapy approaches: the hope for incurable diseases

Cell-based therapy approaches: the hope for incurable diseases | bioengineering | Scoop.it

Cell therapies aim to repair the mechanisms underlying disease initiation and progression, achieved through trophic effect or by cell replacement. Multiple cell types can be utilized in such therapies, including stem, progenitor or primary cells.

A new paper in PNAS describes a novel 3D culturing system for culturing and expansion of pluripotent stem cells. It is based on a unique hydrogel that allows  to control the exact composition of the growth environment, free of any human- or animal-derived factors, and entailing only recombinant protein factors.

10 Bioengineered Body Parts That Could Change Medicine

10 Bioengineered Body Parts That Could Change Medicine | bioengineering | Scoop.it

When physicians run out of treatment options, they look to a nascent field known as bioengineering for solutions to their patients' ailments. Specialized scientists apply engineering principles to biological systems, opening up the possibility of creating new human tissue, organs, blood and even corneas such as the one shown here. Waiting lists for organ transplants continue to be lengthy so the race to save lives with bioengineered body parts is on. Here’s a look at some of the most notable achievements in recent years.
