First fully personalized tissue implant


Key points from article :

Researchers created first fully personalized tissue implant, engineered from a patient's materials, cells. 

Since the cells, the material used derive from the patient, the implant didn't provoke an immune response. 

Cells extracted from the biopsy were reprogrammed to become induced pluripotent stem cells. 

Scientists combined the resulting stem cells, the hydrogel and engineered the personalized tissue samples. 

Research was recently published in Advanced Materials. 

Study was done by Tel Aviv University researchers.

Technology allows engineering any kind of tissue implant from one small fatty tissue biopsy
