Scientists have grown a beating heart

Scientists have grown a beating heartAmerican scientists for the first time in the world has grown in the laboratory the tissue of the heart muscle (myocardium), which are able to decrease exactly the same as "natural" human heart. In order to achieve this result, the staff of the Massachusetts Institute of technology have placed the cardiac muscle cells of the rat on a special polymer substrate, the form of which repeated the heart muscle. Along with the growth of a cell culture substrate were dissolved, giving the cells the ability to form a complete fabric. The researchers then subjected grown myocardium to the effects of electrical impulses, similar to those, which creates a so-called conductive system of the heart (the group of cells in the thickness of the heart muscle, providing the generation and conduction of electrical signals) - and found that he is able to fall exactly on the same pattern as "natural" cardiac muscle. Moreover, it turned out that electrical stimulation was the last factor necessary for the development of adequate structure and biophysical characteristics of the myocardium. Scientists expect that they have developed the technique of artificial myocardium will be used in transplantation and in the treatment of myocardial infarction. Читать полностью -->
