Esophageal Organoids from Human Pluripotent Stem Cells

Esophageal Organoids from Human Pluripotent Stem Cells Delineate Sox2 Functions during Esophageal Specification SL Trisno et al. Highlights • Sequential Wnt, RA, and BMP signaling are required to pattern dorsal anterior foregut • Cultured dorsal anterior foregut spheroids develop into esophageal organoids (HEOs) • HEOs contain basal esophageal progenitors and stratified squamous epithelium • Sox2 …

Implantable Artificial Kidney Could Enter Human Trials By 2017

A team of university scientists has developed the world’s first artificial kidney technology to be implanted in the body. Their bio-hybrid approach uses living kidney cells in tandem with a series of specialized microchips powered by the human heart to filter waste from the blood stream. The National Kidney Foundation estimates that over 100,000 patients …

Mesh versus suture repair of umbilical hernia in adults

Mesh versus suture repair of umbilical hernia in adults: a randomised, double-blind, controlled, multicentre trial Kaufmann R et al. Findings Between June 21, 2006, and April 16, 2014, we randomly assigned 300 patients, 150 to mesh repair and 150 to suture repair. The median follow-up was 25·1 months (IQR 15·5–33·4). After a maximum follow-up of …

US scientists design an artificial kidney with Nano filters that could replace dialysis

The artificial kidney, about to enter its testing phase in humans, will combine electronic and organic elements, and will be similar in size to organs whose function it will assume. This will be a huge improvement for the lives of those who need to connect several times a week to an external hemodialysis device because …
