A research team led by Doctor Alexander Seifalian at University College London is currently creating custom lab-grown organs and body parts for patients utilizing autologous [the patient’s own] stem cells. The scientists have engineered a polymer material that they mold into the shape of an organ in need, infuse with the patient’s stem cells, and then transplant back onto the patient’s body.
So far Dr. Seifalian and his team have been able to create blood vessels, tear ducts, windpipes, ears, and noses all through non-invasive stem cell harvesting procedures. While these simpler structures are being clinically applied today, they are on their way to being common place procedures for the treatment of trauma, disease and injury. the research is leading to the development of more complex organs, such as lungs, livers, pancreas and entire faces that will enable doctors to treat an ever broadening range of afflictions – using the body’s own natural repair and maintenance system. Such is the promise of stem cells and the field of regenerative medicine; and it is happening now.
The progress of Dr. Seifalian’s research is indicative of the acceleration in the application of regenerative medical therapies, which is revolutionizing medicine. Banking your own stem cells today will insure access to developing regenerative therapies to treat a wide array of disease, trauma and injury.
