His certainty is based on the successful transplant of a thyroid gland – generated on a Russian 3D printing device – into a lab mouse last November.
“Our resident company is one of five in the world which can create a functioning bio-printing device. They printed an organ, transplanted it into a mouse, and the thyroid works, producing hormones,” Kaem said at a press conference in Novosibirsk, as quoted by TASS.
The company, he introduced, focuses on next human transplants of 3D-printed organs, too.
“They are set to print other organs, and are now talking of producing a kidney, a liver. It is now at the lab level, but it can allow the development of the bioprinting device itself,” Kaem emphasized.
The system is really complex, via not just different types of types of cells, but in addition numerous algorithms.
But, the printing device should be able-bodied to print human organs in a few 15 years, Kaem said.
Human organ transplants via 3D-printing innovation has been in the spotlight for a few time, and may be utilized in different types of fields: for instance, in August, French cosmetic giant L’Oreal revealed it wouldn’t be testing products on real human skin, and is set to 3D-print human skulls to do the job.
In April, Italian researchers presented a 3D-printed eye version which may replace contact lenses, laser treatment or glasses in the next.
