Scientists: We Created A Functioning Liver Out Of Stem Cells

Stem Cell Liver

Holy. Shizzballs.

If this is true, this is a HUGE step for stem cell research!

A group of Japanese scientists are claiming to have created a functioning human liver out of stem cells!

The team transplanted induced pluripotent stem (iPS) cells into the body of a mouse, where it grew into a small, but working, human liver.

A TINY HUMAN LIVER INSIDE OF A MOUSE!

iPS cells have the potential to develop into any body tissue and can be taken from adults — so there's much less of a moral objection to this.

They're saying the breakthrough will lead to creating human organs we can use for transplants!

WOW!

Science! Science! Science!
