#vision_Int, Dubai United Arab Emirates:- A new innovation represents good news for millions of people with kidney failure around the world, and it is the first artificial kidney that can be implanted in the human body, which was invented within the "Kidney Project".

 

The Kindey X Foundation has awarded a $650,000 prize to the Kidney Project, as a reward for this invention, which is a glimmer of hope for people with kidney failure.

The Kidney Project is the result of a collaboration between the American Universities of California and Vanderbilt, and is based on integrating the two main parts of the artificial kidney project that they were working on separately, the "blood filter" and the "bioreactor", to make a bio-kidney the size of a small mobile phone.

The Kindey X Foundation works with the US Department of Health and Human Services and the American Society of Nephrology to support initiatives to accelerate innovation in the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of kidney disease; As reported by "Sky News Arabia".

The University of California website says the Kidney Project has successfully tested a blood filter, which removes waste and toxins from the blood, and a bioreactor that replicates other kidney functions, such as the balance of electrolytes in the blood.

Two teams of researchers from the two universities worked to integrate the two units into a miniature version of the artificial kidney, and evaluated its performance in clinical trials that demonstrated the success of the device in working with blood pressure alone, and without the need for blood thinners or immunosuppressive drugs.

The new invention will contribute to supporting millions of people with kidney failure around the world, who have to visit dialysis clinics regularly.

The invention will also provide an alternative to kidney donations for transplantation, which are in ever-increasing demand.
