Serhat TUNAR -TDO- Cell Science researchers from the University of Pittsburgh, based in the United States, were able to transplant it into mice by producing small sizes of human liver in a laboratory setting.
The researchers obtained stem cells from a human's skin cell and used it to produce a lung of small sizes. It was explained that the miniature organ, which was then transplanted into mice, worked as part of the animal's digestive system for several days. The researchers stated that they had successful results in all five mice where the transplant was attempted and found human lung proteins in the blood of the mice at the end of 4 days.
Dr. Alejandro Soto-Gutierrez, one of the authors of the study, said their long-term goal is to become able to produce organs instead of organ donation.
