Recently, hepatocyte transplantation has widely increased its interest. This technique can be perspectively considered as an attractive alternative to orthotopic liver transplantation to support liver function in acute, chronic and genetic metabolic hepatic diseases. The authors review the most significant steps in the field of hepatocyte transplantation with particular reference to its clinical experimental application in genetic metabolic disorders and acute liver failure.
