PostSubject: Reprogramming Organs Could Be the Future of Transplants   Fri Jan 06, 2017 4:34 am

...Miromatrix Medical, a small business funded by the National Science Foundation, is testing out a method to strip existing cells from an organ—a process called perfusion decellularization—by pumping solution through blood vessels in the organ. After about two days, the organ is still structurally sound, but it doesn’t have any cells left inside and has turned stark white.

Then, when a patient has been selected for the transplant, the organ would be pumped full of the patient’s cells. Miromatrix Medical states they should incorporate into the organ and should be fully functional. By using an existing organ for the base, rather than 3D-printing an organ scaffold, it already has existing pathways for getting oxygen and nutrients where they need to go.
