Medication for the unborn baby – Medical Xpress

Empas multicellular model, which is mimicking the placental barrier: a core of connective tissue cells, surrounded by trophoblast cells. Credit: Empa An Empa team has succeeded in developing a new three-dimensional cell model of the human placental barrier. The “model organ” can quickly and reliably deliver new information on the intake of substances, such as nano-particles, by the placental barrier and on any possible toxic effects for the unborn child Continue reading
