Animal organs engineered to be chimeric for human cells could contribute significantly to the field of transplantation, including studies of human-specific diseases such as hepatitis-C, as treatment for in-born errors of metabolism, and for development of a renewable source of transplantable organs via modified xenotransplantation. We sought to use human embryoid body-derived stem cells (EBDs) to populate livers in animals for applications in transplant surgery.
