Lab-grown lungs successfully transplanted into a pig

Bioengineering is one of the best parts of the biology which makes sure that artificially grown organs are transplanted in such manner that no signs of rejection are shown. These carefully grown limbs make sure that the best is done as per the body and before making one sampling is done. The milestone has been achieved in this regard recently as it allowed the team to transplant the bioengineered lung into a pig and the body readily accepted the change. This is regarded as a benchmark for which the team has been working for a very long time now. There were some experiments before this success and it failed miserably. The lungs failed instantly as the body did not accept the changes at all. This success has paved a way for the scientists to believe that one day they will be able to provide the lungs to the humans that are in desperate need. (more…)
