Scientists grow human intestine in the lab, giving hope to people with gut problems and cancer patients
Scientists have managed to grow a piece of human intestine in the laboratory, paving the way for new treatments for gut disorders such as Crohn's disease and even cancer.

The breakthrough was made using adult stem cells, which the researchers used to grow tissue fragments called organoids.

These are three-dimensional organ 'buds' with the potential to develop into tissues with certain functions.
Breakthrough: Functioning human intestine has been grown from stem cells in the laboratory, paving the way to new treatments for gut disorders. A stock image showing the transfer of fluid into a petri dish containing stem cells for medical image is pictured

They were then transplanted into mice, where they matured and each animal produced ‘significant’ amounts of fully functional human intestine.

Never attribute to malice that which is adequately explained by stupidity.
