Porcine Model Used for Acute Lung Injury Research

porcine model for lung researchThe porcine model has proved to be helpful in establishing the therapeutic effects of mesenchymal stem cells (MSC) in reducing the inflammatory response during acute lung injuries.

In a study conducted at the Tripler Army Medical Center in Honolulu, researchers determined that pigs induced with severe traumatic lung injuries had decreased PVR/SVR levels two hours after treatment with MSCs.

Finding a Solution for Cardiac Failure with Porcine Heart Tissue

Porcine Tissue for Cardiac FailurePorcine heart tissue may prove extremely helpful in finding a solution for cardiac failure.

The process of using detergents to decellularize and then recellularize porcine hearts with differentiated cells made from human patient specific pluripotent stem cells is an innovative area of research that may significantly change the prognosis for heart failure patients.
