Grow your own! – Surgeons in Spain have transplanted a windpipe in a patient that was created using her own stem cells. Since there is no chance of rejection, she will have no need to anti-rejection drugs.
In BBC News, Michelle Roberts quotes the patient’s surgeon, Paolo Macchiarini, as saying, “We are terribly excited by these results. She is enjoying a normal life, which for us clinicians is the most beautiful gift.”
