Mouse heart made from HUMAN stem cells grown by scientist

U.S. scientists have ‘grown’ a beating mouse heart from human stem cells, leading many to hope that human organs could one day be created.

The heart – which had been removed from the mouse and stripped of its cells – was treated with human stem cells and started to beat again.

The breakthrough could lead to the development of transplant organs for patients thanks to stem cells produced from simple skin biopsies.
