Scientists from the United States have developed a human heart in the laboratory by using root cells.
This is a hope-inspiring development for millions of cardiac patients waiting for heart transplants.
This development by a group of scientists from the University of Minnesota is considered a very important step in organ transplantation.
Scientists say that the hearts produced in the laboratory are expected to beat in the forthcoming weeks.
However, there is need for a long research and work for many barriers to be surmounted so that these artificially produced organs may have all the functions a human heart has.
The experts are happy with the process and of the view that different organs from liver to kidney will one day be produced in the laboratory for transplant patients.
They also note one important advantage of the method they used and say the heart obtained from the patient's root cell is unlikely to be rejected by the body.
