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."
(Bill Christensen 5/1/2013 8:16:36 AM)
"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?"
(Dewtey 5/6/2013 8:00:55 AM)
