In the United States (US), more than 400,000 individuals suffer from End Stage Renal Disease (ESRD). Currently, more than 99,000 are on the national transplant waiting list to receive a kidney. There is a serious shortage of donor organs and researchers around the country have been working hard to find a solution to this problem.
Regenerative medicine investigators at Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center in North Carolina hope to utilize pig kidneys as “support structures” or “scaffolds” to engineer new kidneys for humans.
