Comments on Mini-Livers Made By 3D Printer
Organlegging may not be the growth industry that some fear. (Read
the complete story)
|"As far as I know, the first 'min-liver' from stem cells was grown by British scientists (see World's First Artificial Human Liver Grown In Lab) in 2006. Organovo's technique seems to add mass production to the picture."

|"I wonder if these small ones can be grafted onto an existing (and failing) liver. "
(Dewtey 5/2/2013 4:32:11 AM)
|"Good question. You've got me wondering if, even though they can't stand alone, what if some of them were placed inside a failing liver - would it begin to show better function?"
(Bill Christensen 5/2/2013 6:23:10 PM)
|"That's what I was wondering, you just said it with more comprehension and style."
(Dewtey 5/4/2013 11:56:16 AM)
|"Just heard back from a Medical pro, he says that there's not enough liver functions in this version. But, he says, down the line it is quite possible."
(Dewtey 5/5/2013 3:13:52 AM)
|"I couldn't find any more information on the functionality of the mini-livers, except that they are better than liver assays, which make use of the shallowest scraping of cells."
(Bill Christensen 5/5/2013 4:24:53 PM)
|"Of, course, We could grow livers for meals, for example for a space mission to Mars or for vegans. Foie de veau saute or pate foie gras?"
