One novel solution to the shortage of human organs available for transplantation envisions 'growing' new organs in situ via xenotransplantation of developing anlagen from animal embryos. We and others have shown that renal progenitor cells (metanephroi) transplanted into animal hosts undergo organogenesis (differentiation and growth), become vascularized by blood vessels of host origin and exhibit excretory function. Metanephroi can be stored for up to 3 days in vitro prior to transplantation… CONTINUE READING
