Swedish and American researchers have developed a technique that could be used to turn patients' stem cells into organs and complex tissue. Paolo Macchiarini writes in The Lancet that animal tissue could be used as scaffolds to grow organs, but he cautions that a strong commitment to safety is necessary. Macchiarini has been involved in two trachea transplants using tissue engineered from patients' cells.
