Scientists created the first human esophagus made from stem cells

Bioengineering scientists working to produce the entire human gastrointestinal system in the laboratory reported that pluripotent stem cells were used to create a human esophagus. This is the first time scientists have been able to grow human pluripotent stem cell (PSC) esophageal tissue, cells that theoretically can form any type of body tissue. Published in the Cell Stem Cell diary, the study presents the latest innovatotion from researchers...
