20 Dec '11
Samara scientist Sergey Litvinov has created a unique implant that can replace and restore any tissue of a human body, NanoNewsNet reports.

The discover was made by the professor Sergey Litvinov as a part of his doctoral dissertation. Implant is a biopolymer with grown crystals of hydraxile-apatite. The scientist named his product Litar. The work on the project is continued.

According to TV and Radio Company “Samara”, experiments have demonstrated amazing results.

The last experiments showed that the implant can replace not only a bone tissue but any other tissue in a human body.

Further professor’s research was on cardio muscle. The first operation on implanting the Litar into the damaged myocardium zone was performed on a dog. In a month researchers could not find the damaged spot in the heart, as the scar had fully vanished. The muscle tissue fully regenerated.

After four years the professor Litvinov managed to receive acknowledgement of his project not only in Russia, but also abroad. The professor got in the RF Ministry of Healthcare certain documents, authorizing wide application of his technologies.

Main goal now is to implement the new heart attack treatment method in medical institutions.
