  • Well i have been keeping an eye on it. And talked and read a lot off people/articles. i bet get set guys .. in next 15 years it will be reality.

  • Chapel Hill, North Carolina the university there has been working on one the size of a quarter that's all I know.

    • The size of a quarter?? How on earth could that filter so many gallons of blood every day?? I just know I've seen articles from the 1970s about artificial kidneys and articles from the 1960s about a permanent artificial heart! That's around half a CENTURY with nothing out yet. I do feel the kidney will finally happen within 10 to 20 years & maybe the heart too.
  • Interesting share

    • Hostess, that's very nice! But they don't give any dates or if they're any limitations compared to a normal kidney. Even AFTER it's ready FDA approval can take another 5 to 7 years! You can find articles from the 1970s about a permanent artificial kidney and from the 1960s about a permanent artificial heart but nothing has ever been submitted for FDA approval. I wonder bio tech is so slow when computer tech is so fast!
