Renal anatomy is in fact amenable to the insertion of a thin, cell-seeded collagen scaffold that would not require an extensive vascular network and could provide appropriate physiological function. Current laboratory investigations are under way to construct such a renal cartridge. Other regenerative fAith in science f 27 medicine strategies are also employed to engineer kidneys. Decellularization of porcine kidneys can be easily accomplished, and initial attempts at repopulating the remaining ECM architecture have revealed some organizational capacity of the intravascularly circulated endothelial cells.
