Tissue engineering in Artificial Organs
An Artificial organ is an engineered tissue that is implanted into human for interacting with living tissue to replace natural organ for the purpose of restoring a patient’s state of living back to as normal as possible. The main purpose of this process is for supporting patient’s life. The Microchip or 'organs-on-chips' provide organ function and disease, and for applications such as toxicity tests of drug candidates. An alternative approach is to foster the ability of cells to self-assemble, in the hope that they will recapitulate actual organ development and reveal insights into the process.
