Microchip Can Regenerate Cells to Heal Tissues and Organs

Written by 

Imagine being able to watch as a wound heals right before your eyes. Soon you may be able to do just that, thanks to a microchip with healing power. Best of all, the chip can go beyond wound-healing to repair damage to nerves and organs. Using nanotechnology, researchers have been able to convert skin cells into cells that can be used as a tool to repair tissues that have become damaged.

In less than a second, the microchip can begin to generate new cells that are specialized for the area in which they’re being implanted. While trying the technology using cells from mice and pigs, researchers found that they were able to generate cells. Within only one week, the team noted that the cells had actually created new blood vessels and nerve tissues.

Using this technology, researchers were able to regenerate a leg on a mouse and help another mouse recover from a stroke. So far, the team’s experiments are working about 98 percent of the time, giving them hope that they could see similar results in human patients.

In addition to all of this good news, the team points out that once the microchip has done its work, there’s no need for it to stay with the patient. The chip merely kicks off the regenerative process and lets nature take things from there.
