Researchers replicate COVID-19 infections with lab-grown ‘mini-lungs’
Excerpt from the Press Release:
Researchers at the University of California, San Diego (UCSD) have grown miniature human lungs in a lab dish that they say come the closest to mimicking the real thing—complete with all the myriad cell types found in the body.
The small organoids of human tissue could help rapidly iterate the testing of new treatments for respiratory and infectious diseases including COVID-19 by allowing scientists to explore their preliminary effects without needing a full study.
“This human disease model will now allow us to test drug efficacy and toxicity and reject ineffective compounds early in the process, at ‘Phase 0,’ before human clinical trials begin,” Pradipta Ghosh, M.D., professor at the UCSD School of Medicine, said in a statement.
