Artificial organ created from stem cell in lab

In the United States alone, there are over one hundred thousand people on the waiting list to get an organ transplant in America. Every day, almost 20 people die due to the short supply of healthy organs. Complicating this process is the fact that the donor and the patient have to have a match in order for the transplant to succeed. Without a match, the…

Scientist create artificial kidney in lab from stem cell

For the first time, scientists have successfully grown functioning human kidney tissue in the lab that is able to produce urine. The kidney tissue, generated from human stem cells, was implanted under the skin of mice and went on to develop into working kidney cells. Millions of people around the world every year either die from kidney disease, or undergo dialysis while waiting for a…
