Japanese scientists have grown human liver on the head mouse

Japanese scientists have practically solved the main problem of transplantation medicine is the lack of transplant organs. They managed to turn pluripotent cells into stem, from which they afterwards grew the tissue fragment of the human liver.

After that, researchers from the University of Japan Yokohama introduced these fabrics on the head of the laboratory mouse, where he soon formed resembling liver formation. The results of the experiment are very encouraging, Japanese specialists intend to develop a method of growing human organs in the next ten years.

Although the structure formed on the head of the mouse body is slightly different from the structure of the liver of an ordinary man, but it work fine blood vessels, passes the metabolism of substances that a person processes exclusively in the liver . Additionally, the liver is able to break down and recycle through the consumption of drugs.

So in the near future, science may give medicine to the method by which from the patient's cells can grow him a new organ for transplantation. The main problem scientists to date has been the inability to determine exactly what fabrics will become modified cells.
