Tweet Facebook Mail Australian scientists have created mini-kidneys in a laboratory dish in a world-first which some day may lead to new treatments for patients with kidney failure.The primitive mini-kidneys, which are not a viable organ, were grown from stem cells by researchers from Murdoch Childrens Research Institute, led by Professor Little.An image of the human kidney formed in a dish. (Minoru Takasato, Murdoch Childrens Research Institute)They first grew a mini-kidney in a dish in 2013 and were able to form two key cell types.But they now have grown an organ that forms all the different cell types normally present in the human kidney.The mini-kidneys could now be used to screen drugs either for treatment of kidney disease or to find out if a new drug is likely to injure the kidney."The mini-kidney we have been able to grow is very complex and more like the real organ." said Prof Little."This is important for drug testing as we hope they will respond to the drugs as a normal organ might.RelatedCoronavirus: Victoria to lockdown COVID-19 hotspots amid state's outbreak spikePlanes diverted, roads watched,
