Scientists have created a universal implant, which will not be rejected by the body
Any material (including biological), which are not created by the body, in any case, are foreign and will be rejected. And even if they are made from the most advanced inert material, ensure that the rejection will not happen no one will. A "extinguish" the immune system for the sake of it - it means to expose the body more danger. However, a group of researchers from Tel Aviv University came up with a method of manufacturing a personalized implants that cause the body to perceive them as their own fabric.
According to the publication phys.org, at the heart of the work is the technology of creating any kind of implants from a small "portion" of fat cells from the biopsy.
"We were able to create a personalized technology differentiation of adipose-derived cells into various types of cells of other organs of cardiomyocyte cells to the spinal cord and brain cells. Since both the cells and the material used originate from the patient, the implant does not provoke an immune response, enabling the correct regeneration of the defective organ "- said Tal Dvir, Professor, Department of Biotechnology, Materials Science and Engineering, Tel Aviv University
To implement vysheozvuchennogo scientists reprogram cells in adipose tissue induced pluripotent stem cells, capable to develop under certain conditions, the cells of any cell line.
Currently, scientists are engaged in the use of its technology for the recovery of damaged spinal cord regeneration in myocardial infarction, as well as the use of dopaminergic implants for the treatment of Parkinson's disease in animal models. In addition, in the future, scientists want to test your way to recovery of other organs such as the bowel and the eye.
"With our technology, we can design any type of tissue, and after transplantation to regenerate effectively make any sick or injured organ. The technology is fully personalized tissue implants allow us to do so with minimal risk of immune response. "
