Grow your own organs!

ImageNow we’re talking Stem Cells!!!!  I’ve always believed that we were capable of harvesting our own stem cells to provide a better match for our bodies than sources obtained elsewhere.   Now technology has finally come up with a solution!  In a recent article from MIT, they explain how they are now capable of taking an individuals own stems cells to create synthetic windpipes.  “The synthetic windpipes are made by growing a patient’s own stem cells on a lab-made scaffold. In the future, this technique could be adapted to create other organs, such as a replacement esophagus, heart valve, or kidney.”  Great story with lots of promise.  Image new pancreas for those with Diabetes, liver and heart replacements. We are just getting started!
