A team of researchers have created a surgically implantable, artificial kidney. The new device has silicon features and functions on nanotechnology. The new artificial kidney performs all the functions of a typical human kidney and it replaces the need for traditional dialysis and kidney transplants among patients. (Photo : Twitter/xprize )

Researchers recently presented a study that could lead to the development of a surgically implantable, artificial kidney, which is built with nanotechnology. This new study could lead to the development of an alternative artificial kidney for people on dialysis, with end stage renal disease (ESRD), along with persons on waiting lists for kidney transplants.

  1. Wow thats absolutely great news to know that nanotechnology has come out so long. But my question is this can this artificial kidney would be available for normal people or it will be only available to the rich people.

  2. I am interested in information about artificial kedney replacement I am on dialysis
