Search for Genetically Stable Bioengineered Gut and Liver Tissue Advances

Newswise imageBefore medical science can bioengineer human organs in a lab for therapeutic use, two remaining hurdles are ensuring genetic stability–so the organs are free from the risk of tumor growth–and producing organ tissues of sufficient volume and size for viable transplant into people. Scientists report in Stem Cell Reports achieving both goals with a new production method for bioengineered human gut and liver tissues.
