We know that natural homemade remedies are the best and the healthiest medicine we have; but the modern technology used in modern medicine can sometimes really surprise us. If you did not know, dialysis patients can’t live without treatment. The bad news is that every patient waits for a long time before it gets a kidney transplant.
UNTIL NOW THERE WAS NOT ANY OTHER SOLUTION TO THIS PROBLEM.
Dialysis patients suffer an enormous pain while waiting for their kidney, but this is all gone thanks to the new bionic kidney. Scientists from the University of California, San Francisco, USA, have released the first bionic kidney prototype which brings hope to all dialysis patients. The good news, in this case, are that they assure us that the chance of rejection is 0%!
The bionic kidney is made of renal cells. It can balance levels of sodium and potassium in the body while regulating blood pressure. The lead researcher on this matter is Dr. Victor Gura. He says that the device will be available on the market in only 2 years. In 2015 the researchers have received 6 million dollars from the institute Biomedical Imaging and Bioengineering.
This project and its first prototype are wonderful news to any dialysis patient. We can’t wait for this device to be available on the market, there are millions of people waiting for a kidney transplant for years. This brings hope for a normal life to all of them.
