New Discovery that Makes Growing Replacement Organs a Possibility

very thought of being able to grow actual human organs in a laboratory is mind
blowing! There are endless possibilities
for medical research with a recent study performed at the MRC Centre of
Regenerative Medicine in Edinburgh, U.K. Scientists were successfully able to cultivate living cells from an
animal in vitro. The process that they used to do this could
be used for a multitude of medical purposes and therapies for transplant
patients and more. This study was
focused on creating a functional thymus for mice but it brings hope that this process could be
used for humans for creating a variety of other organ tissues. Read more.
