This spells a breakthrough in the treatment of cancer, diabetes and other diseases.\n
A team of University of British Columbia researchers led by Josef Penninger have made the discovery. As a result of painstaking work, the scientists have turned artificially fertilized eggs into blood vessels and other types of tissues. This biological matter was successfully tested on lab mice. This is an outstanding achievement that can lead to the successful treatment of Alzheimer’s, diabetes and different tumors.
More than 400 million people suffer from diabetes today. This disease involves enlargement of the membrane surrounding blood vessels which leads to an impairment in the amount of nutrients that reaches the blood cells. As a result these patients have a higher risk of stroke and other complications.
Making blood vessels will help scientists carry out additional research to prevent the thickening of blood vessel membranes and increase the effectiveness of existing medications.
