In a major medical breakthrough, Tel Aviv University researchers have "printed" the world's first 3D vascularised engineered heart using a patient's own cells and biological materials. Their findings were published on April 15 in a study in Advanced Science.

Until now, scientists in regenerative medicine — a field positioned at the crossroads of biology and technology — have been successful in printing only simple tissues without blood vessels.

"This is the first time anyone anywhere has successfully engineered and printed an entire heart replete with cells, blood vessels, ventricles and chambers," says Prof. Tal Dvir of TAU's School of Molecular Cell Biology and Biotechnology, Department of Materials Science and Engineering, Center for Nanoscience and Nanotechnology and Sagol Center for Regenerative Biotechnology, who led the research for the study.

1. Sounds Great

The next step is to get one that works In Vivo, which is the big test. Regenerative Medicine is the future.

2. I hope the earth lives long enough

for all these great discoveries!! There have been so many lately, most in infant form still. I'm afraid we'll walk right past each other and not be able to do anything about it.

I hope that this method will be disseminated in all countries. Especially those suffering from heart attacks, in order to obtain satisfactory results for the development of science
