NHK: Japan, the world’s first inter-species level, raised the body from stem cells

A group of scientists from Tokyo University have managed to grow a healthy pancreas in the body of a rat using mouse stem cells. This was reported by public television NHK.

Scientists first in the world able to reproduce the structural part of the living organism to the species level – to grow the body of one being in the body of another. After transplantation into the body of the mouse pancreas is fully functioning. According to scientists, the success of this experiment opens up the possibility of growing human organs in animals for subsequent transplantation, however, the prospects for such a transplant raises many ethical questions from the international medical community.

The next step the research group will attempt to grow organs of the monkey in the body of a pig. In Japan for research purposes is allowed the use of human stem cells in the bodies of animals, but cloning and the creation of artificial living organisms prohibited by law.
