Wake Forest Study Provides Insights into Organ Regeneration for Humans

Posted by on Nov 16, 2012 5:00:41 AM







Researchers at Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center’s Institute for Regenerative Medicine reported their findings in an animal study in which rats were able to re-grow their bladders in as little as 8 weeks. The focus of the study was to better understand the regenerative process at work in the re-growth of the bladder.

"A better understanding of the regenerative process at the molecular and cellular level is a key to more rapid progress in applying regenerative medicine to help patients," George Christ, senior researcher of the study, said. "If we can understand the bladder's regenerative process, the hope is that we can prompt the regeneration of other organs and tissues where structure is important - from the intestine and spinal cord to the heart," said Dr. Byron Petersen, co-author of the report.
