Scientists have succeeded to develop the growth tube (Esophagus) in the laboratory



Scientists developed the Human Granule Tube (Feed Tube) from stem cells in the laboratory

For the first time, scientists have succeeded in developing a small functional version of the human granule tube or feed tube using stem cells (PSC) in the laboratory.

This experiment by researchers in the Cincinnati Children Center for Stem Cell and Organic Medicine in the US can provide relief from personal problems. With this success, the new method can be used to treat GI disorders.

The development of artificial granular holes by scientists can benefit in the treatment of congenital defects such as esophageal atresia, eosinophilic esophagitis, and Barat metaplasia etc. In addition, this artificially developed tube can be transplanted into individual patients.

The esophagus (Oesophagus) is a narrow muscular tube approximately 25 centimeters long, which starts with the pharynx behind the mouth, under thoracic diaphragm from the chest and ends at the heart valve located in the abdomen. The esophagus is connected to the pharynx and the tube that opens in the stomach below. The food through the same tube reaches the stomach.

By the entrance of the tissues on the top of the esophagus is called epiglottis which stops at the time of swallowing, so the food can not enter the trachea. The chewed meal reaches the abdomen through the peristalsis of these muscles and goes to the abdomen. It takes only seven seconds for the esophagus to pass through the food and during this time there is no digestive action.
