The Facts About Stem Cell Therapy

The Facts About Stem Cell Therapy

Stem cells are “blank” or undifferentiated cells which makes them unique. They can develop into cells that serve a number of functions in different parts of the body. Most of the cells in our bodies are differentiated and can serve only one function. For instance, red blood cells have the unique capability to carry oxygen…

Functions of Bio-Artificial Liver

Functions of Bio-Artificial Liver

The liver is one of the most important organs. It regulates the level of most chemicals in the blood. It also secretes the bile which breaks down fat to promote digestion and absorption.  The blood leaving stomach and intestine passes through the liver where the chemicals are broken down and balanced, nutrients for the body…
