Transplantation of fetal liver tissue coated by ultra-purified alginate gel over liver improves hepatic function in the cirrhosis rat model
Date: 19 May 2020
In this study, we used a new coating agent, that is, ultra-purified alginate gel (UPAL), for fetal liver tissue transplantation. This study aims to compare the effect of UPAL with the effect of other coating agents on improving the effect of fetal liver tissue transplantation in a liver cirrhosis rat model. Prior to the transplantation of wild-type ED14 fetal liver tissues, various coating agents were separately applied on the liver surface of rats with cirrhosis. Then, we compared the engraftment area, engraftment rate and liver function level of these rats. As a result, coating the liver surface of a cirrhosis rat with UPAL obtained the best effect in terms of engraftment area and engraftment rate of the transplanted liver tissue and in the recovery of liver function compared with control group. Therefore, UPAL coating may serve as a novel strategy for liver organoid transplantation.
