Regrowing the Liver and Eliminating Organ Transplantation Need

Posted by on Sep 18, 2015 2:30:00 PM


Scientists at the Medical Research Council (MRC) Centre for Regenerative Medicine at the University of Edinburgh have succeeded in growing new liver cells in animal models by infusing Hepatic Progenitor stem cells that can develop into new liver cells. This is the first time liver function has been restored in a living subject, suggesting stem cell infusion as a possible alternative to liver transplant.

Liver Treatment Improved by Advance in Stem Cell Differentiation.

Recently published research out of South Korea has presented a new method of differentiating mesenchymal stem cells [MSCs] into liver cells for autologous use in regenerative medicine.  Geneticists found that the overexpression of two genes within MSCs, oct4 and sox2, resulted in the stem cells converting into fully functional hepatocytes, or liver cells, capable of producing urea and storing glycogen.
