Abstract

Over the last decade the interest in hepatocyte transplantation has been growing continuously and this treatment may represent an alternative clinical approach for patients with acute liver failure and life-threatening liver-based metabolic disorders. The technology also serves as the proof of concept and reference for future development in stem cell technology. This chapter reviews the field of hepatocyte transplantation from bench to bedside.
