In a significant step toward reducing the heavy toll of osteoarthritis around the world, scientists have created the first example of living human cartilage grown on a laboratory chip. The researchers ultimately aim to use their innovative 3-D printing ... [Published Science Daily - Apr 28 2014]

Quotes

...across by 8 millimeters deep, the chip could serve as a test-bed for researchers to learn about how osteoarthritis develops and develop new drugs. "With more testing, I think we'll be able to use our platform to simulate osteoarthritis, which would be extremely useful since scientists really know very little about how the disease develops" said Tuan
"We thought that this made them in a sense a more effective lung than you would find otherwise," Farmer said. "Finding this in animals that don’t have those metabolic rates means we were probably wrong."
