Next big step in the medicine world: Mini human heart developed in a lab by an Indian -origin scientist


By Newsgram Staff Writers

Human heart has been replicated under laboratory environment by Anurag Mathur, an Indian-origin scientist with the University of California at Berkeley. This will help researchers predict if a certain kind of medicine will adversely affect the human body or how much dosage of a drug is required.

“Many times doctors and researchers fail to predict a response to a certain drug or medicine because of the inaccuracy of the models used, like mice, that don’t have the same reactions as human tissue.” Mathur was quoted by Xinhua.

The mini-heart is created with human-induced Pluripotent stem cells that can form many different types of tissues. A special silicon microchip in the mini heart makes these tissues mimic blood vessels.

The researchers are calling this the next big step in the medicine world. With this kind of development medicine can become completely personalized. The doctors will just require a sample from the patient and he/she will be able to have his or her heart modeled in a lab with all the tests done.

“Doctors will be able to predict how certain drugs react on specific patients, thus preventing many illnesses and loss of valuable time,” a hopeful Anurag Mathur said.
