Experimental and Clinical Transplantation of Hepatocytes in MMRC

The conference on Experimental and Clinical Transplantation of Hepatocytes took place in our Institute in the period 7-10 July organized by Prof. WL Olszewski and  the Egyptian delegation from the Theodor Bilharz Research Institute, Giza, led by Prof. ME Nagui.



It was a periodic event organized under the agreement between the Polish Academy of Sciences and the Egyptian Academy of Science and Technology. The main subjects were preparations for clinical transplantation of hepatocytes  in Egypt, where grafting of the whole liver is still restricted by religious motifs. Another point was search for most effective natural culture media for isolated hepatocytes, in order to get a high yield of cells, sufficient  for treatment of hepatic coma patients. Prof. Nagui handed over  to the Polish group a diploma of merit awarded by the Egyptian Ministry of Science.
