American scientists announced the successful completion of a series of experiments that not only give hope for a cure to millions of sick people, but also to open a new page in the cardiovascular hirurgii.Amerikanskie scientists announced the successful completion of a series of experiments that not only give hope for recoverymillions of sick people, but also open a new chapter in cardiovascular surgery.
University of Minnesota researchers succeeded in the laboratory to revive the dead heart.
It is a question only of experiments on rats, but the doctors say that they are only a few steps away from being able to get rid of heart disease and human.
NTV correspondent Anton Volsky figured out the details of the study.
Scientists at the University of Minne
Dory Taylor, a spokesman for the Center for Cardiovascular Surgery of the University of Minnesota: "Everyone has a cell.The problem is to bring together the cells in a volume structure, which will create a body.We learned to do things that previously were available only to nature. "
heart of the deceased is used as a frame on which the building up new matter.Under laboratory conditions, dead heart came alive on the fourth day, and a week later was to pump blood.
Dory Taylor, a spokesman for the Center for Cardiovascular Surgery of the University of Minnesota: "It opens up the possibility to create any body.We hope that in the future we will be able to create everything. "
This technology is not new.It has already been used to grow heart valve tissue, but it has never tried to create a whole heart.
This technology is used, for example, in traumatology.Russian doctors also use these technologies.
fact that until recently it was science fiction - is becoming a reality.Luck American scientists opens tremendous opportunities for organ transplants.
In America, about 50 thousand people die each year while waiting for a donor heart.In Russia, about 30 thousand people die every year from heart failure.This is the case where could help the new technology.And with the help of other organs can be grown.
