Muscles + Vascular Network Grown In Vitro

June 21st, 2005 | Filed under: Biology, Future, Health | No Comments »

Imagine planting “seed” cells into a body for a simple muscle biopsy. Dr. Shulamit Levenberg of the Technion-Israel Institute of Technology along with researchers in Professor Robert Langer‘s lab at MIT have moved a step closer by managing to grow in vitro muscle tissue with its own vascular network from a mixture of different cells. These tissues continued to grow and develop among the host’s own tissues at a higher rate than similar implants without blood vessels.
