HOW TO REMAKE A LUNG

PHASE 1: Strip It
Scientists fill a rat lung with a detergent that removes the organ’s cells, leaving behind only its inanimate collagen-based scaffolding. This is then placed in a standard nutrient-rich liquid that promotes cell growth.

PHASE 2: Build the Airways
Scientists pump epithelial cells extracted from baby rat lungs into the trachea scaffolding, which leads into other empty airways. The cells stick to the scaffolding and multiply to form the bronchi, bronchioles and alveoli, the tiny air sacs that exchange oxygen and carbon dioxide with the blood.

PHASE 3: Construct the Vessels
Making blood vessels is similar. This time, endothelial cells harvested from rat lungs are injected into the scaffolding of the lung’s pulmonary artery. The cells grow to form the lung’s veins, arteries and capillaries.
Can't wait to upgrade my lungs

Guessing the Rat has to be on some sort of dialisis or artifical lung to keep it alive while the lungs are being rebuilt... have not read the article.. at work... stupid fire walls...

Sweet. So id like two of the dual chip 5970's lungs in crossfire please?
Do you know if my current 550w heart can power it? or would it be a bottleneck?

That might be pushing it with the 550w...

And those lungs are a bit pricey for 60000€ a pop

I suggest you take a look at the budjet models, 5770's. They only cost 12500€ a pop. And they'll run any modern sports performance out there almost perfectly.

their saying that it will be somewhere around 20 or so years before this will be done to human tissues.

Another leap with medicine.

this statement has just single handedly created a new level of nerdiness that few will ever achieve.

haha.
In all seriousness this is super sweet, hope tobacco companies are dumping money into this so that they can "claim" that smoking is safe....
