3 Zero rejection factor

The most amazing aspect of the bionic kidney is the advantage it holds over a regular donor kidney. The rejection factor is zero. The invention consisting of renal cells was unveiled recently as a prototype the size of a coffee cup. It proved to work efficiently in balancing levels of sodium and potassium and also regulating blood pressure.

The project funded with a $6 million grant from the National Institute of health in 2015 has been well spent in resulting in the world’s first bionic kidney. The success of the prototype of the bionic kidney means that scientists will try their best to progress to human trials later this year.
