Iranian scientists generated liver and pancreatic stem cells in the laboratory at the Mashhad University of Medical Sciences.
Dr Nasser Mobarra, Biochemistry Assistant Professor at the Mashhad University of Medical Sciences, said that “using tissue engineering, we use biocompatible structures to differentiate human IPS cells from hepatocytes and pancreatic cells.” He said the results reported by using these systems showed strong biochemical and molecular markers. He further mentioned that stem cells are the parent of all body cells and are broken down into embryos, adults and cords. “They have to use stem cells and tissue engineering to receive successful cure in a vast number of diseases.
“We had to develop a cell that matches healthy cells in the body because of the incidence of liver and pancreas disorders and the increasing prevalence of diabetes. But another way was to manufacture a scaffold mounted on the cells, analogous to the pancreas and liver cells. “He also emphasised the potential of human stem cells to regrow, which is a big benefit of stem cells, and the impressive trait is that they can become mature cells. For instance, this is done in association with stem cells when a scar is healing, and this is a good healing possibility.
