15:18 StemCellsPortal.coml Transplantable lab-grown organs move a step closer

LAUSANNE (CH), July 2020 — Biologists and bioengineers at Ecole Polytechnique Federale de Lausanne (EPFL) have designed a new method for growing simplified human mini-livers. Their process is a potentially important breakthrough in the quest for transplantable lab-grown tissues. In the shorter term, the miniaturized organs will serve as a platform for trialing treatments against non-alcoholic fatty liver disease, the most common liver disorder in the developed world. Their findings have been published in Nature Communications The EPFL scientists created a simplified tiny version of the organ, known as an organoid, using bipotent stem cells that occur naturally in the bile ducts connecting the liver to the gallbladder. But the real breakthrough lies in the fact that the researchers developed a new type of matrix that, like a scaffold,

17:46 StemCellsPortal.coml Liver transplants could be redundant with discovery of new liver cell

LONDON (UK), July 2019 — Scientists have identified a new type of cell called a hepatobiliary hybrid progenitor (HHyP) that forms during our early development in the womb. Surprisingly, HHyP also persists in small quantities in adults and these cells can grow into the two main cell types of the adult liver (hepatocytes and cholangiocytes) giving HHyPs stem cell-like properties. The team examined HHyPs and found that they resemble mouse stem cells which have been found to rapidly repair mice liver following major injury, such as occurs in cirrhosis. They reported their findings in a paper published recently in Nature Communications. “For the first time, we have found that cells with true stem cell-like properties may well exist in the human liver,” said lead author Tamir Rashid, M.D., Ph.D., from the Centre for Stem Cells & Regenerative Medicine at King’s College London. “This, in turn, could provide a wide range of regenerative medicine applications for treating liver
