First Human Skeletal Muscle Grown In The Lab To Contract With Electrical Pulses
Researchers at Duke University have successfully grown human skeletal muscle fibres in the laboratory. They also got them to contract under electrical impulses. Researchers were previously able to grow muscles tissues in the lab. However, they were not able to get them to “come alive” so to speak.
In light of this, are we getting closer to the days where degenerative muscles diseases can be combated?
