Onderzoekers van de University of Cambridge & Bristol hebben voor het eerst in het laboratorium gekweekte rode bloedcellen in een ander persoon getransfuseerd. Super interessant dus ik dacht dit deel ik even met jullie. Onderin een video van YouTube.
Press release issued: 7 November 2022
Red blood cells that have been grown in a laboratory have now been transfused into another person in a world first clinical trial led by a UK team including University of Bristol researchers.
The manufactured blood cells were grown from stem cells from donors. The red cells were then transfused into volunteers in the RESTORE randomised controlled clinical trial.
This is the first time in the world that red blood cells that have been grown in a laboratory have been given to another person as part of a trial into blood transfusion. (1)
