Organovo Holdings, Inc Announces First Preclinical Data on 3D Bioprinted Human Liver Tissues

Organovo Holdings, Inc. is presenting the first data showing survival and sustained functionality of its 3D bioprinted human liver tissue when implanted into animal models.  This data is being presented at the TERMIS-Americas Meeting in San Diego. Organovo implanted its 3D bioprinted human liver tissue patches onto the livers of NOD/SCID mice.  The tissue was composed of human hepatocytes and select non-parenchymal cells.  Function of the 3D bioprinted human liver tissue patches was seen via detection of human albumin, alpha-1-anti-trypsin and fibrinogen in the circulating blood of the mice as early as seven days and for at least 28 days post-implantation.  Histopathologic evaluation of the implanted therapeutic tissue revealed retention of the bioprinted cellular organization through 28 days post-implantation, with robust staining for key human metabolic enzymes associated with inborn errors of metabolism, such as Fumarylacetoacetate Hydrolase (FAH) deficiency and Ornithine Transcarbamylase (OTC) deficiency.  The tissues remained intact on the animal liver and were well tolerated by the animals.  Taken together, these data support further preclinical development of Organovo’s 3D bioprinted liver tissue for therapeutic use. Focusing first on acute-on-chronic liver failure and pediatric inborn errors of metabolism, both indications where a bioprinted liver patch may show therapeutic benefits, Organovo intends to submit an Investigational New Drug (“IND”) application to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (“FDA”) for its therapeutic liver tissue in three to five years.
