British scientists have developed a new stem cell technique for growing working liver cells which could eventually avoid the need for costly and risky liver transplants.     

A team of researchers led by the Sanger Institute and the University of Cambridge used cutting-edge methods to correct a genetic mutation in stem cells derived from a patient’s skin biopsy, and then grew them into fresh liver cells.           

By putting the new liver cells into mice, they showed they were fully functioning.   

… Bradley said the technique — the first success of its kind — leaves behind no trace of the genetic manipulation, except for the gene correction.
