World's first! "Pig liver" successfully transplanted into the human body

2024/03/22

On March 10, led by Academician Dou Kefeng of the Chinese Academy of Sciences and Director Tao Kaishan from Hepatological Surgery Department, Xijing Hospital of Air Force Military Medical University made a major breakthrough in the clinical research of liver heterotransplantation: the whole liver of a multi-gene edited pig was successfully transplanted into a brain-dead patient using the auxiliary liver transplantation method. During the operation, the transplanted liver secreted bile immediately after blood flow was restored with no hyperacute rejection, and functioned continuously for more than 96 hours.

Heavyweight! Prof. Gang Zhao, the main committee member of Yinfeng Cryomedicine Specialized Committee, published another article "Advanced Cryopreservation Engineering Strategies - A Critical Step in Utilizing Stem Cell Products".

Cryopreservation is known as the technique of solidifying time, by cooling biological materials (e.g. cells, tissues and organs) to low temperatures with the addition of cryoprotectants (generally -196°C liquid nitrogen preservation), and then rewarming them to normal temperatures (37°C) in an effective manner when needed, at which time the biological samples can still be restored and maintain their activity.

Heavy! Professor Zhao Gang, chairman of our special committee, jointly published an important article - "Principles and Progress of Cell Cryopreservation"

2023/07/21

In recent years, low-temperature biomedicine, a less popular subject, is attracting more and more attention, attracting more and more scientists to join it. Among them, the cryopreservation technology of cells, tissues and organs, and even the entire human body continues to make progress and is gradually used in clinical applications.

"Cell glue" helps regenerate tissue and heal wounds | An important step towards building tissues and organs

According to new research published in the journal Nature, researchers at the University of California, San Francisco, have designed a molecule similar to "cell glue" that allows them to precisely instruct cells to bond with each other. The achievement marks an important step toward building tissues and organs, a long-sought goal of regenerative medicine.

LUCAS, the first aid device that can fight death!

When someone suffers from respiratory arrest or cardiac arrest due to drowning, heart disease, high blood pressure, car accident, drug poisoning, gas poisoning, foreign matter blocking the respiratory tract, etc. we should provide emergency rescue in time to prevent the patient from not getting enough Timely rescue and resuscitation can cause irreversible damage to the brain and other important organs and tissues of the human body.

The team of Professor Zhao Gang, chairman of the Yinfeng Cryomedicine Expert Committee, and his collaborators published a report [Cryopreservation method of mouse follicles based on synergistic ice suppression effect]

In recent years, the incidence of malignant diseases (such as breast cancer and hematological diseases) among young women has increased. Although aggressive chemoradiotherapy or bone marrow transplantation can cure 90% of young women, these treatments can still damage their gonads. It can even lead to premature ovarian failure. In addition, many women who delay childbearing due to work or financial reasons are also affected by infertility.

Twin babies who "traveled through time and space" for 30 years finally found parents willing to adopt them

Recently, a new world record was born in the United States: the "oldest" pair of twin newborns "turned 30 years old" just after birth. On October 31, 2022, a couple in the United States successfully gave birth to twins named Lydia and Timothy using frozen embryos donated by others (Figure 1). They were thawed and revived from donor embryos that had been frozen for 30 years.
