Bio- Reactors

Johns Hopkins students have finally created a new advanced device that offers new techniques to cure diabetes and fulminant liver failure.

This new device is built in a small housing to enable bio-reactors to operate efficiently and is covered with a band of nylon mesh.Its outer stent is made of stainless steel, inner one with nitinol and to produce insulin and other proteins that body requires a small bio-reactor is also created inside the vein.By affixing transplanted insulin-producing cells in a major blood vessel to enhance cell therapy a cell therapy pouch is also formed on the gap between the two stent.
