DECRYPTION - From the development of “neutral” materials for making prostheses to the design of tissues made from living cells and capable of interacting with the body, tissue bioengineering has made giant strides in a few decades.



Artificial red blood cells, more powerful than the real ones!

In June, a Sino-American team announced that it had manufactured, and tested on rabbits, super-red blood cells capable of fulfilling all the natural functions of red blood cells (giving hope for the end of the risk of blood shortage), but also of delivering molecules in every corner of the body.

There is still a long way to go before the routine use of these new kind of red blood cells.

But cell engineering and biomaterials are thus giving birth to innovations every day that seem to be science fiction ...

Will the medicine of the future be a high-tech garage where the human body will repair itself like an automobile from a catalog of spare parts?

Research is progressing, but the human body is more than just a mechanism: it is a complex whole, each part of which is linked to the others.

Modifying a single element triggers a general alarm which mobilizes all
