Tissues grown in the lab from stem cells may fail to live up their therapeutic promise because the cells choose their own fate. For the last 20 years, scientists have worked to engineer tissues for use in a range of conditions, such as osteoarthritis or heart failure.
They do this by placing stem cells those that can become any kind of cell in biodegradable 3-D structures, or "scaffolds," in the laboratory. However, lab-grown tissues often fail to be fully effective as treatments when transplanted into patients. The study was published in the journal Nature Communications.
