Blood Cells Produced with Stem Cells

Researchers at Weill Cornell College of Medicine and Boston Children’s Hospital have developed two methods to utilize stem cells taken from patients to produce full-fledged blood cells. By genetically engineering adult stem cells, researchers were able to create blood stem cells that could differentiate into white and red blood cells, as well as platelets. This revolutionary technique could help patients who require regular blood transfusions, as well as those who are awaiting bone marrow donations.

 

“This step opens up an opportunity to take cells from patients with genetic blood disorders, use gene editing to correct their genetic defect and make functional blood cells,” says Rio Sugimura, a primary author of the study published by Boston Children’s Hospital.

 

As this advance demonstrates, the best stem cells to use will be the patient’s own [autologous stem cells] as this negates the need to find a suitable donor and eliminates the chances of rejection of the transplanted tissue.
