World’s first artificial kidney created

A US-based Indian
researcher Shuvo Roy has created the world’s first artificial
kidney for transplant that would be able to filter toxins out of
the bloodstream, regulate blood pressure and produce vitamin D,
Tamil Nesan reported. The artificial kidney had been reported to be
successful during tests in a small number of animals. Once
available, and if affordable, this creation by the Roy-led team at
the University of California will do away with the need for kidney
dialysis. Source
