In this study, the authors developed a novel liver cell co-culture system. C3A cells were co-cultured with human placental mesenchymal stem cells (hPMSC) in microspheres placed in a fluidized bioreactor. Their results suggest that this culture system significantly improved the preservation of liver cells'metabolic functions which may greatly enhance the efficacy of bioartificial liver treatment.
