Topic : New inventions on Science and Technology
Researchers at the Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Guwahati have successfully created an implantable Bio-artificial pancreas model grown within a 3D silk scaffold.
The pancreas encapsulates insulin-producing cells and is capable of naturally producing insulin in a sustained manner.
How was it created?
Scientists coated the scaffold containing beta cells with a semi-permeable membrane barrier.
The membrane allows insulin produced to be released into the blood stream but does not allow the immune cells to cross the membrane and kill the inlet cells.
To ensure that the implant is not rejected by the body’s immune system, drugs that suppress the immune system were embedded in the scaffold.
If successful in animal and human trials, it can be used for treating people with type 1 diabetes.
