3D Bioprinted Organs: Future of Healthcare

Bioprinting

Family members started panicking once they heard their beloved one needed an organ replacement, but not the doctor. He said, nothing to worry. Our 3D Bioprinting machine will create the new organ you need. Though we have not yet reached this day, but we are very close. There has been considerable and commendable progress in the field of bioprinting in terms of creating transplantable tissues in regenerative medicine.

Using 3D bioprinting, researchers have already constructed several different tissues including bone, skin, cartilage, muscle, tracheal splints and neural. Organovo, one of the most active companies in the 3D bioprinting, has developed a bioprinting process that takes cells from donor organs and turns it into a printable bio-ink. The company has successfully bioprinted liver and kidney tissues. These tissues would be now used to test drugs. This in itself is a milestone as most of the drug studies are carried out using animal models which many a times leads to erroneous and inconclusive results.

Cholesterol is often made out to be the bad guy of our body, due to its close association with heart ailments. But it is very much essential, to maintain the integrity of the tissues, nerves, and immune system and cells. Cholesterol even plays a crucial role in the utilization of serotonin, the body’s “feel-good” chemical. Research says total cholesterol levels are consistently lower in more severely depressed and more aggressive patients. It has been even suggested that total cholesterol could be used as a clinically useful biological marker for detecting the risk of suicide.

Did you know that Cholesterol is not a fat, but it actually is a “sterol.” Also it does not contain any calories and because of which body cannot derive any energy from it

Hope for Cancer: Immune Checkpoint Drugs

Hope for Cancer

The scientific fraternity reaffirmed their confidence in Immune Checkpoint Drugs by giving away Nobel Prize for Physiology and Medicine to Dr James P. Allison and Tasuku Honjo. These two are the scientists who found that if we block the immune checkpoint brakes it can pave way to cure cancer. Immune checkpoint proteins CTLA4 and PD1, … Read moreHope for Cancer: Immune Checkpoint Drugs
