3D-printing of human organs closer to reality

Researchers have designed a new bioink which allows small human-sized airways to be 3D-bioprinted with the help of patient cells for the first time. The 3D-printed constructs are biocompatible and support new blood vessel growth into the transplanted material. This is an important first step towards 3D-printing organs. (more…)


Non-neutralizing secretory IgA and T cells targeting SARS-CoV-2 spike protein are transferred to the breastmilk upon BNT162b2 vaccination

In view of data scarcity to guide decision-making in breastfeeding women, we evaluated how mRNA vaccines impact immune response of lactating health care workers (HCW) and the effector profile of breast milk transferred immune protection. (more…)


MSCs Stem Cells with Severe COVID-19 ARDS

There is an ongoing critical need to improve therapeutic strategies for COVID-19 pneumonia, particularly in the most severely affected patients. Adult mesenchymal stem cell (MSC) infusions have the potential to benefit critically ill patients with acute respiratory syndrome SARS-COV-2 infection, but clinical data supporting efficacy are lacking.
