Abstract:

Bioartificial tubule devices consist of tubular epithelial cells and porous membranes. Although bioartificial tubule device treatment is yet to be approved by any government in the world, investigation of its use is now considered an essential step in the future of kidney regeneration. This chapter outlines the basic form and function of tubular epithelial cells, interactions between matrices, porous membranes and tubular epithelial cells, the development of tubular epithelial cells attached to the surface of porous membranes, and in vitro evaluation of the transport and metabolic function of bioartificial tubule devices. Bioartificial tubule device ...
