Scientists Coax Stem Cells Into Functional Red Blood Cells, Taking Us Closer To Limitless Artificial Blood

Medical DailyBlood is one of the most vital components of the human body, but we can’t create an artificial version, which means we must rely on donations for transfusions and operations. However, two recent studies suggest we’re closer than ever to making a Animal shelter pens hilarious description about ‘utter bastard of a cat’ ..

Scientists get closer to making personalized blood cells by using patients’ own stem cells

Los Angeles TimesNew research has nudged scientists closer to one of regenerative medicine’s holy grails: the ability to create customized human stem cells capable of forming blood that would be safe for patients. Advances reported Wednesday in the journal Nature could Med School, BCH nearing cell fabrication breakthrough ..
