are still in development, but Talbot pointed out other applications for PICM-19 cells.
"This is a significant achievement that marks a major milestone in the development of our artificial liver
Joseph Vacanti has spent more than 20 years working toward an artificial liver
, experimenting with various types of support structures that might allow specialized cells such as hepatocytes (liver cells) to grow and function outside an actual organ.
In November last year, Prof McGuckin and his team used stem cells taken from umbilical cords to grow a tiny artificial liver
, believed to be the first of its kind in the world, which could potentially eradicate the need to test drugs on humans and animals.
SCIENTISTS have grown an artificial liver
that is set to revolutionise the medical world, it was revealed yesterday.
Scientists at Newcastle University have used the technique to create an artificial liver
to be tested, which could eventually be developed to transplant into humans.
Successful research outcomes will result in the incorporation of the PICM-19H cells in an artificial liver
device for use by patients suffering from chronic and acute liver disease, as well as use in in-vitro toxicology and pre-clinical drug testing platforms.
system developers include Vancouver-based HepaLife.
