Update from the Stem Cell Front.


Recommended Posts

Teen gets new liver. Her body spontaneously switches blood types. And what would you say caused this?



Demi, now 15, suffered liver failure and had a liver transplant at the age of nine in 2001....


...her doctors at Westmead Children's Hospital say theywere shocked to discover her blood type had changed to match the blood type of her deceased male donor...


...On closer inspection, specialists found that stem cells from the donor liver had penetrated her bone marrow, effectively resulting in a naturally occurring bone marrow transplant.


Ahhh yes. My precious stem cells.
