Kidney Formation through Stem Cell Research

The field of medicine is evolving continuously and is finding new ways to help the humanity. Researches of the University of Queensland announced that they have created  a kidney using stem cells. They are calling it a breakthrough treatment for patients suffering from acute kidney diseases. The field of bioengineering will also have a broader future research prospect with the emergence of these stem cells kidneys.  Her team designed a protocol that prompts stem cells to form all the required cell types to self-organize into a mini-kidney in a dish.
Kidneys are bean-shaped organs, and a reprocessing machine in our bodies. They are located in the middle and back, below the low rib cage and one on each side of the spine. Every day, a person’s kidneys process about 200 quarts of blood and purify them from waste products and additional water, which eventually become urine. The bladder stores urine until releasing it through urination.

Research like these can cater to some of the demands of cure for transplantation of organs. The ‘kidney made in a dish’ is yet to be tested for survival but the breakthrough in stem cell research is remarkable for kidney related diseases.

Bentham Science Publishers is one of the leading journals in the STM industry. It has journals and eBooks pertaining to topics from science, medicine, technology and the like. One of its high impact factor journals is “Current Stem Cell Research & Therapy”  having articles on the current development.
