First Artificial Kidney made...

Patients that are suffered from kidney deseases have to do dialysis but Even then, a dialysis machine is only about 15% as effective as a functional kidney, and the five-year survival rate of patients on dialysis is just 33% to 35 %.Researchers have made a prototype model of the first artificial kidney...They are sure that by doing such experiments they will eliminate the need of kidney..
The artificial kidney include thousands of microscopic filters and a bioreactor to mimic the metabolic and water-balancing roles of a real kidney
