iPSC Modeling of Mulisystemic, Hereditary Transthyretin Amyloidosis

This work involves the successful modeling of familial amyloidosis in vitro with the use of iPSC technology, demonstrating that it is possible to model a long-term, complex, multisystem disease in a relatively short time, using lineage-specified cells (hepatic, cardiac and neuronal) derived from patient-specific stem cells.
