Hepatic organoid technology holds great promise for the development of future Regenerative Medicine strategies to treat patients with severe liver disease. Recently, some studies have demonstrated robust protocols for isogenic organoid generation using induced Pluripotent Stem cells (iPS). However, using patient's specific iPS-derived cells poses a major challenge for a translational pe...
The liver is a key organ in the regulation of metabolism and hemodynamics. Several acute and chronic liver diseases (i.e. resulting from toxic exposures or congenital diseases) progress for a severe loss of hepatic function. Currently, the only therapeutic option for patients with end-stage and/or progressively severe liver disease is the partial or total organ transplant. Due to the sh...
