NY Times: Growing Spare Parts Inside the Body

Posted by on Oct 4, 2012 12:38:56 AM


A recent story in the New York Times tells the story of a young infant who was born three months premature with a disorder that causes their intestinal tissue to die. The condition can be fatal and for surviving infants, current treatments are limited and invasive. Dr. Grikscheit, a pediatric surgeon at the Children’s Hospital Los Angeles, is developing methods to grow intestinal tissue ‘in vivo’ [inside the body] to replace defective intestinal tissue and provide an opportunity for children afflicted with the condition to live a normal life. “We have a huge problem that if we solve it, it will change the future for a lot of children,” she said.

Dr. Grikscheit’s novel research is advancing regenerative medical therapies that are being developed to treat formerly untreatable conditions. The research represents what is emerging as the gold standard in regenerative treatments – utilizing the patient’s own stem cells to regrow tissue and organs to treat disease, trauma and injury.
