Researchers led by Columbia Engineering demonstrate severely injured donor lungs declined for transplant can be recovered outside the body by a system utilizing cross-circulation of whole blood between the donated lung and an animal host. The team states human lungs unsuitable for transplant can be recovered using their new transgenic cross-circulation system, with the hope it may provide a much larger number of organ transplants to critically ill patients.

Researchers identify elusive stem cells capale of producing fully-functional blood vessels.

Blood vessels are the parts of the circulatory system responsible for transporting oxygen-rich red blood cells, nutrients, and immune cells throughout the body, with defects in these transport systems shown … Continue Reading Researchers identify elusive stem cells capale of producing fully-functional blood vessels.

Researchers develop functional living membrane in massive leap towards a bioartificial kidney.

The limited removal of metabolic waste products in dialyzed kidney patients leads to high morbidity and mortality.  A bioartificial kidney could replace the need for dialysis or transplantation in the … Continue Reading Researchers develop functional living membrane in massive leap towards a bioartificial kidney.
